~ Please meet my roommate! ~



He is a Shih Tzu and a rescue. His name is Forrester. His foster mom, Cheryl, named him after a dear friend of her's and the story meant so much, I didn't change it.  Cheryl runs the rescue group and one of the other foster parents was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer.  This lady was told that the most up-to-date treatment was available at a hospital in San Antonio, however, they could not get her in for close to 2 months.  Cheryl called her friend & business associate in San Antonio and he was able to get the lady in to the hospital for treatment the next week!   I just felt that my boy needed to remain with his given name.  :-)   The vet thinks he's about 8 yrs old now....I've had him 4 years.  He was found wandering the streets of Plano ~ a suburb of Dallas.  He is extremely well behaved and familiar with many commands.  His nemesis would be "uniforms"....and men.  That's when he becomes upset and very agressive.  He is my love bug!

He is so cute! He looks like the puppy we found a few weeks ago, but then we found the owners!
He looks like a real love!

What a nice story to his name. I love those big beautiful eyes!

~Ah! Pat he looks just like my "Teddy".

"Teddy" and "Bear" were my Shih-stzu babies I had for fifteen years. I still miss them to this day. We have not found another dog yet. It just hasn't felt "right". Sigh....one day.

I'm glad he has a happy home with you.

Pat...first of all thanks for coming by and visiting...you know our Bentley boy is a rescue. He was thrown from a car....he isn't thrilled about people in general, but we have had him 6 months and he is so much better.
I KNOW you love your boy!
