Brando's adoption donation is $350 and he is being fostered in Central Ohio.  He has been neutered, microchipped, received his rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza, and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms, started on prevention as well as flea prevention. Brando has also had a dental cleaning.  Brando needs to be an only dog and needs a home with dog experience with dogs that need clear cut boundaries and an time to adjust to a new situation.

Brando is an approximately 6 year old Shih Tzu who came into rescue through no fault of his own when his owner went into assisted living.  He does well on housetraining if kept on a schedule.  Brando has made great progress while in rescue and settled in with his foster home very well.  He was nervous when he first came into rescue but has become more confident while in rescue.  He loves his walks and is excellent on a leash.  Brando does get somewhat overly excited when meeting other dogs but he is working on it and showing progress.  He does need an owner with recent breed experience that understands he must be given space and time when first in a home until he knows he can trust a person.  Brando is used to being an only dog and he does not do well with other dogs in the home, so he will require a home with no other dogs and an experienced owner who will continue to work with him to get him more comfortable around unfamiliar settings. He is crate trained and loves to play ball with you.  While Brando loves to be near his person, he is not a cuddly dog and much prefers to just be close to his person.  Brando is used to living in a home with adults, so a home with no children is needed.

Is Not Good with Dogs, Not Good with Cats

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the individual webpage of our dogs, you will be able to get more information each dog.

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 you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's 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.
