Meet Moses

Moses is a sweet, shy 7 year old shih tzu who entered BCFS' foster care program on January 21st. This seven year old guy nearly broke our hearts when he peered hesitantly out from his travel kennel. He looked so sad and so afraid. He’s from a puppy mill and is very fearful of people and other dogs.

These photos are Moses’s first step towards freedom. His swollen paws a tribute to his time in a cage. His wary expression and low body carriage all signs of his past.

Moses has an ear infection and a bladder infection (common in breeding males) and will be ready for adoption in two weeks. He’s incredibly shy and his new family must be extra patient while he finds his own.

We already saw hope, as he wagged his tail moments after his release. We spoke calmly and sweetly to this lovely shih tzu and we saw hope.

It was dim and distant, but it was hope. Moses will take a little time to learn that there are good people in this world, but we’ve got the time, the love and the patience to see him through.

We’ll be monitoring his health over the next week and hope for improvement.

If Moses touches your heart and you'd like to give this sweet boy a happy new life and loving forever home, please visit our website to download and fill out an adoption application at this link: When complete, please email it to our Adoptions Coordinator Silvana at:
