Big Red


Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Big Red.  Oh boy, look at this sweet boy.  He is a chunky 
Shih Tzu mix weighing in at 27lbs on intake. Big Red is 9 years old.

Big Red is amazing.  You would never know he was a senior.  He and 5 other dogs were all surrendered to the shelter when his owner fell ill.  He loving and quiet but game for anything.  He loves to be with his family and sit up on the back of the couch and look out the window.  Big Red is not a nippy pup.

Big Red's former owners told the shelter that he is good with kids and dogs.  Yes we can attest to that.  We don't know if he is good with cats but we believe he would be.  His temperament is wonderful.  Big Red will require regular grooming but is a good boy for the groomer.  He is housebroken.  He does love his food but his food is measured now twice daily.  Big Red does not require crating.  Big Red is excellent in the vehicle.

The ideal home for our boy, is quite flexible.  A famy not gone too long but he enjoys children and dogs of all ages.  He will need more eercuse so two good walks a day to continue the weight loss needed.  The family should adhere to their vets instructions on the type of food required going forward.

A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for Big Red.

He has been neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, dewormed and microchipped.
