Mavis is a 2 year old Shih Tzu mix. She's sweet, playful and loves to cuddle. She doesn't do well with dog food and is currently on human grade food. Mostly, chicken breast, ground turkey, rice and vegetables like carrots, potatoes and cauliflower. As a puppy, she showed up at our doorstep, with her smaller pup brother. She clearly had run away from a home that was breeding dogs and she was seriously malnourished and matted. We did not have the heart to take them to a shelter. With time, as a young family with 2 kids under 6 years old, we realized we were not equipped to take care of Mavis and her brother. We recently gave up her brother for adoption. Mavis deserves better- she is loving, gentle, and requires attention and care that we cannot afford. She is not fixed and is up to date with her shots.
