Allie's a doption donation is $275 and she is being fostered in Central Ohio.  She has been microchipped, received her rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza, and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms and started on prevention.  Sh e has also had an extensive dental cleaning with extractions.  Based on her history of neglect, Allie requires a home with a strong vet history.

Allie is an approximately 9-10 year old Shih Tzu that came to us from a rural shelter  where she had been removed from a neglect situation along with two other dogs.  She had most definitely been neglected – inflamed and infected skin,  fleas and internal parasites, ear issues, painful mouth from severe dental disease, and impaired eyes as a the result of severe, untreated dry eye.  Fast forward, she has blossomed into a wonderfully, spunky girl who wants to be with her people.  Allie has a playful spirit with her humans as she continues to come out of her shell.  When it is time for the all important nap, she loves to find the softest bed or blanket around.  She does well on housetraining if kept on a schedule.  Her skin continues to improve also.  Allie is on daily, inexpensive eye drops which she takes easily. She does fine with other dogs, but she is happiest with her people.  She is learning to do steps, but would do best in a ranch home with few/no stairs.  Allie will do well with either with a companion of similar size and energy or with adopters who are homebodies.

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.
