Dazzle is a 12 year old Shih Tzu who came to us as an owner surrender with multiple mammary tumors after her backyard breeder owner had finished using her for his puppy mill. Most of the tumors were removed but unfortunately they were cancerous and have metastasized. Dazzle is now in permanent hospice care with Mike and Chad whom she loves, as well as the company of another Shih Tzu, possibly her first best friend. She is a happy girl despite her background and will have the best life possible during her remaining time with us.

We will be covering Dazzle’s medical needs for the rest of her life. Right now, she takes Metacam and Tramadol, and the combination seems to keep her pretty pain-free and hopping around like a happy girl. We'd love to have some sponsors to assist with the monthly costs of her medication, which run around $35 per month.
