Dexter, a blind 12-year-old Shih Tzu, found himself at Madison County Illinois Animal Control after being surrendered by his owner. Thanks to The Grey Muzzle Organization's generous grant, Partners for Pets was able to rescueDexter from animal control, knowing they would be able to get him into tip-top shape for his new family. And Dexter needed a lot of help!
He had severely matted fur and poor hygiene. In addition to his standard vetting needs (neuter, vaccines, de-worming, microchip and flea and heart-worm prevention), Dexter was in need of grooming, blood-work and a dental.
Despite all Dexter had been through, he was extremely sweet and loved to be held. Once he was finished with his tune-up, he went into a foster home and was adopted into a loving, forever home in no time at all.
Help more dogs like Dexter get into tip-top adoption shape.
