Rescued Shih Tzu Warms Hearts

Spread the love

After being nearly hit by a car, Ruthie, a stray Shih Tzu, found herself in dire straits with matted fur and crusted eyes. It was evident that her previous owner had likely abandoned her due to her medical issues.

A New Beginning with a Loving Foster Mama

Thankfully, @lohmamaof4 stepped in to rescue Ruthie, providing her with the love and care she desperately needed. Despite her rough start, Ruthie found solace in the kindness of her new foster mama.


Ruthie was found in an area trash is dumped all the time. The vet said although she is underweight it isnt from being outside! She was not outside for long. She is posted on all kinds of missing dog groups & apps, community fb pages, nextdoor, pawboost, posted as found with the local shelter and still nothing. But the kicker? SHE IS MICROCHIPPED!!!!!! The owners were sent my information via calls, texts and emails over a week ago & still nothing. Now I totally understand that the information may not be updated and accurate. But you can bet your 🍑 if my dog went missing and my info was not up to date… I would be calling and updating it ASAP. If her owners did this they would find out that their dog was already found. So I really just don’t see many other excuses. #lostdog#lostshihtzu#shihtzu#shihtzutok#dogsoftiktok#dogtok#founddog#shelters#microchipped#dumpeddog#neglecteddog#medicalneeds#animalabuse#animalneglect#vetcare#vetappt#eyeinfections#earinfections#neglect#dobetter
