Dolly is a shih tzu and a senior dog born Nov 18, 2000.  Her owner was elderly, 94, and was unable to care for her anymore due to his own health issues. He brought her to the vet for euthanization and was terribly heartbroken but had nowhere to go with her.  The timing was perfect for Dolly as we happened to be at the vet with one of our own dogs.  The vet office alerted us to the sad situation.  Happily one of our foster parents took Dolly into her home.  

Dolly is still spry for her age with no known health issues except she appears to be deaf and losing some sight.  She is 12 lbs.  She can easily go on walks, which she enjoys.  She loves to have you close by.

Save a Life, Be a Foster

Noodles was born in approx 2009. She was a stray picked up by the shelter. She was very pregnant when we rescued her from the shelter. She had two boys, Oscar and Mayer. She has been spayed and is ready for adoption. She is very sweet. She likes people, cats, and other dogs.  Best in a home with no small children.

If you would like to foster Noodles, please email us at staff@arvsimi.org
