From Shih Tzu Rescue to Forever Home

Spread the love

Mickey’s story began in April 2016 when he arrived at ShihTzu Rescue from a Humane Society in Sioux City, Iowa. Suspected of having Cushings Disease, he was swiftly diagnosed and put on medication to manage his symptoms. Despite needing dental work and having several teeth pulled, Mickey’s resilient spirit shone through.

Settling In and Healing

During his time with his foster parents, Mickey proved to be a gentle and easygoing companion, enjoying the simple pleasures of belly rubs and outdoor walks. Despite his medical challenges, he remained cheerful and adaptable, winning the hearts of everyone around him.

A New Beginning

In January 2017, Mickey’s journey took a heartwarming turn when he was adopted by a loving family in Stillwater. His calm demeanor and independent nature made him the perfect companion for their puppy mill ShihTzu, helping the younger dog adjust to his new surroundings. Mickey’s adoption marked the beginning of a new chapter filled with love and belonging.


Mickey’s story is a testament to the resilience of rescue dogs and the transformative power of love and care. With the support of his foster parents and the dedication of his new family, Mickey overcame his health challenges and found his forever home, where he is cherished and adored.
