We adopted a Champagne and white Shi Tzu 5 years ago. We lost our little male dog and his sister wasn't coping. We looked at the Desperate for Love website and saw a very sad girl. She was scared of everyone. It took nearly 2 months before she would come out of her kennel that we set up in our lounge room. Once she trusted us you couldn't have a sweeter girl. She has since had many health issues that the vet say was due to her previous life. She never complains and is full of love and knows she is loved back. Her sister also loves her very much. She now lets other people pat her, before if anyone came near she would lose bowel and bladder control. The photo is of her on her first holiday with her new sister.
