In shelter Dog

Pataskala, OH, 43062
Pet name:
Georgia - ARR
Shih Tzu
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.
Georgias adoption fee is $450 and she is being fostered in Central Ohio area. She has been spayed, microchipped, received her rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza, and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms, and started on prevention as well as flea prevention. She has also had a dental cleaning with extractions. Georgia requires a home with a secure, physically fenced yard.

Georgia came into rescue from a puppy mill and has made incredible progress in rescue. She likes other dogs and is very easy going in nature. Georgia is starting to play with toys. She is very quiet. We are working on house training and she is doing well. Georgia is very smart and is learning new things constantly. Georgia loves to snuggle and be loved on. She is still cautious with people when you pick her up as she will only look at you out if the corner of her eye. Georgia still needs work with walking on a leash as most puppy mills do. One cant help to fall in love with this cutie pie. Her big eyes and little tongue that sticks out makes her adorable! Georgia requires a home with a secure, physically fenced yard, and while she gets along with other dogs of similar size, she would be fine as an only dog if the people are home quite a bit.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved.

Please review prior to submitting an application.
Our adoption process is detailed here:

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog. We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved. It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if youre home would be suitable. If we indicate on the dogs biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence. Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets.

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information. If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed. Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.
No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.
At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.
We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
