About Beckham Barkley
Hi there! Welcome to my page! I'm Beckham Barkley and I'm looking for a new family. Could you be the one? Here's my stats:
Possible Breed: Probably Shih Tzu and Chihuahua
Gender: I’m a guy
Colors: Stunning, black and gray
Age: 6 years young
Weight: About 10 pounds
Ideal Home: I'm flexible but probably no young kids-I'll explain below
Now for the good stuff!-
So I am really a striking dog. My color and my hair make me unique! My foster mom says that I may be a little dog but I have a BIG personality (as do most Chihuahuas). Hey, know what I really love? Laps! I love to sit on laps so if you are looking for a companion to hang out with you and, be close to you, I'm your guy!
I do need to tell you that I can be possessive of my food bowl. Ya know, living without enough food before I got to Lone Star, can make a fellow worry. So it would be best if I live in a house without little kids because they wouldn't really understand to stay back when I'm eating. And I would never want to get carried away and nip a little kid. So best that I live with teenagers or adults! When I came to LS, I had mange but it's been under control for a long time. If I have a flair up, there's a bit of medication I can take to get back on track. Otherwise, I'm healthy
Start the process of adopting me or one of the other pups by filling out the application found at www.shihtzu-rescue.com.
PS. I've had ALL my vetting, and oh boy, it was a lot. Here's what I had done:
Distemper/Parvo shots – TWICE. One shot doesn't cut it.
Bordetella shots - ALSO TWICE.
A fecal exam so I don't have any bad worms. Treatment if I do.
A heartworm test. Treatment if I am positive for heart worms
BLOODWORK to make sure my liver and kidneys are working well, because you know, we doggies often have issues in the liver and kidneys.
A DENTAL exam AND cleaning if I needed it- yep, all my toofies are checked out.
See, that's a LOT. Ask your vet - that's a LOT.
Not what you were looking for? You can adopt a different pet in The Lone Star Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso Rescue (LSSTLAR) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused, abandoned and neglected Shih Tzus and Lhasa Apsos. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which means your donations may be tax deductible.</p><p>Our dogs come from shelters, animal control, puppy mills, as well as owner turn-ins. They are immediately taken to our veterinarian for a complete physical examination. They are spayed or neutered, if needed, and receive all vaccinations. They are checked for both heart and intestinal worms and receive the appropriate treatments.</p><p>The next step on their journey is a foster home. We begin with evaluating their temperament, such as how they get along with other dogs or cats. We also determine if they are a playful dog or a cuddly lap dog. If we observe any behavior problems we begin positive training. They are then put on our website as being up for adoption. by using our search feature and adjusting the radius. Thank you for helping our animal shelters and rescue groups with pet adoption!
