NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.
Breed: Male Shih Tzu X
‘Strong, happy, adventurous, kind, independent and resilient’ are just a few of the words used by Angus’ foster parents to describe him. Angus is a happy go lucky dog that despite being hard of hearing and hard of sight, loves life and approaches it with a permanent wagging tail.
He loves other dogs and will greet them with the biggest tail wag. He requires a little help to read some of the other dog’s signals due to his sight and hearing issues, but overall would really love to have an older, but still playful mate in his forever home. Angus LOVES his walks and his foster parents say he shows such bravery when out and about on his walk as he can’t see and hear all that well.
A resourceful and resilient dog, when Angus first finds himself in a new environment he will do a few laps to help memorise where things are. He’s not keen on being picked up too often as this can disorientate him due to his hearing and vision problems. For similar reasons, he is not great in a car and it can make him a little stressed.
Angus’ foster parents describe him as a really good dog and easy to be around. He is house trained and he does not need that much exercise, but would love and benefit from a few short walks each day. He is currently taking medication for an ulcer on his eye and has a cough that is being investigated by the vet.
He is a happy boy that gets along with both humans and dogs and would without a doubt prove to be the most loyal buddy and bring his forever family an abundance of joy and appreciation for life despite the hardships he faces. Angus’ ideal forever family will have another older and not overly active dog (but one who still loves a play and a walk) and people who have patience for an older dog and who are home more often than not.
Should you feel that you’d love to have this good boy and his beautiful spirit join your family, please complete our application form. We’d love to hear from you.
