Local adoption ONLY (within 45 mins of Gulfport, MS) Hi everyone! My name is Elena and I am a quiet but rambunctious bundle of cuddles! I'm a blonde Shih Tzu who is approximately five years old and weigh around 11 pounds. I may be small but I have a big personality with lots of love to give! My foster Mom thinks I must have lived with a kitty before because I like to "paw" the air to get attention. She also said it's hard for her to get a good picture of me because I am always on the go. She calls me a little waggle butt because I wag my tail all the time! 
When TDR first rescued me I had been outside for some time. My hair was a mess and I wasn't very healthy either. They are helping to get me all fixed up! I've had both sets of shots (ouch) and last week I got spayed (super ouch)! But I'm a tough little girl and took it all like a trouper. Soon, I'll be going through my heartworm treatment. But I think I'll do great with that too.
 I can be a little timid at times so I will need to gain your trust to make sure you are good people like I'm sure you are. I absolutely love getting cuddles and rubbies! I also love playing with my foster brother and the toys we have.  I use the wee wee pads instead of the floor and I'm still learning to walk on a leash and go potty outside. I do have a dry eye on my right side so I'll need drops in it everyday. I can hardly wait for my furever family! If you are interested in adopting me applications can be found at .

Special Needs: Heartworm positive

We at Tired Dog Rescue strive to find homes for dogs in need, build quality relationships with responsible owners, and preserve current dog-family homes by seeking solutions to financial, behavioral, and situational dog problems. We believe the lives of homeless, abandoned and abused dogs are just as precious as dogs that currently have a loving home. We believe that all dogs deserve a loving home despite their age, medical condition and/or disabilities. We provide whatever medical care is needed regardless of cost. All dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative and current on vaccinations before being placed.
