  Mattie, ~5 years old Female Shih Tzu  Mix

Mattie is a female (we think Shih Tzu) mix who came into rescue from animal control in TN. She smelled so bad they could hardly touch her. She was covered in fleas, ticks and mats. She had a place on her back that the vet said was where some insect had laid eggs and the larva were hatching. He cleaned her up and put her on antibiotics. When this picture was taken she had gone to the groomer and was looking good. This little dog deserves the best home. It is so painful to think of a dog suffering as much as this little one has. Please only apply if you can treat her like a princess! She is available on 9/23. She weighs 10 lbs, is spayed, housetrained, good in the car. She wants to be a lap dog. Not exposed to kids, so let's not take a chance. Teens would be fine, gentle ones, of course. Our process is that you fill out the application first, then we will contact you if your application is a match. Please read our guidelines under Apply to Adopt as some dogs require a stay-at-home and some dogs require a fenced in yard. Phone calls are discouraged before the dog arrives as we tend to put down everything we know. If information is missing, it's usually because we don't know yet. :-)
