Shih Tzu

Available for Adoption

9 lbs
9 years old

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! 

My foster Mom says that I’m about as cute as a button and I know that I sure have come a long way from a not very good life.  I came into Furbaby Rescue matted and flea bitten.  I had bladder stones that were causing me a lot of pain.  My hair had gotten into my eyes and one of my eyeballs ruptured.  Luckily, my foster Mom knew just what to do, and off to the vet I went!  After several weeks of extra special care, I’m ready to go to my forever home!  I’m healthy and happy and I’m feeling great!

I loooooove everyone, but my absolute favorite thing is to chew and gum on my favorite little toys. I carry my toys around and bring them inside and outside and then I put them in my bed!  I do very well with small dogs and dogs who are as big as a Cocker Spaniel.  There is a big fat cat who lives here and I like her just fine, I guess.  I like to lick her ears because I think that they taste good!

I currently have a small back yard to sun myself in and I love to be outside whenever possible—until I get cold, that is!  If you love to garden, I would love to go out in the yard with you! 

If you would like to meet me, please email over an application today!  I can’t wait to meet you!


Marsha is being fostered in Olympia, WA email Sandra for application
















Doggie thoughts:

 “Why won’t they adopt me? Is it because I’m a senior?

I wouldn’t overlook them just because they’re a senior.

Are they afraid of me dying too soon? Well, I might be afraid they’d die too soon if I was a young puppy and then what would happen to me?

Which is worse – to say good-bye to an aged beloved pet or to die yourself and leave your pet behind with an unknown future?”

People thoughts:

For me, a human, I’d rather know that my pet is waiting for me on the other side versus me dying first and leaving my beloved pet’s future to chance. Sometimes those we ask to take over our pet’s care after we’re gone, don’t always do so.  After all, we’d be gone, we’d never know

"The Animals Savior"
Copyright Jim Willis 1999

I looked at the caged animals in the
shelter...the cast offs of human society.

I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread,
sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry
"God," I said "this is terrible! Why don't you
do something?"
God was silent for a moment and than
He spoke softly
"I have done something." He replied
"I created You"
