Ireland is a beautiful senior gal who is looking for a special adopter who will give her the care she requires for her health issues. She is a 9-year-old Shih Tzu who weighs 14 pounds and as you can see in her photos, she hasn't always been this adorable. She has a chronic skin infection which requires medication as well as medicated baths. But she has come a long way in her foster home with the TLC she's being given. The last photo is her "before" picture - you can see what a difference good care has made for this formerly-neglected gal. Ireland has a wonderful temperament though and if you're willing to put in the work, she will reward you by being a sweet little companion dog. She is okay with other dogs and has shown no interest in the cats in her foster home. She will tolerate being crated for a short time but then she will express her displeasure and want to be out & about with her people. So a bit about her health issues...We recommend a fish-based dog food as chicken makes her skin itch. She also has ear infections that can be managed with ear meds and regular cleaning. Also she's suffers from a dry eye condition & infection that can be managed with special eye drops & ointments. We are really hoping that someone wonderful and loving and patient will look beyond these issues and see the sweet & special girl that Ireland is and give her a chance. If you'd like to meet Ireland when she arrives in NJ, please fill out an application at and ask for her by name, IRELAND TX!
