George's adoption donation is $225 and he is currently 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 and started on prevention as well as flea prevention. George required surgery to remove a damaged eye and he has also had a dental cleaning.
George came into rescue from Louisville Metro Animal Services in Louisville, Kentucky where he was found as a stray.  We believe him to be a Shih Tzu or Pekingnese mix.  George has made incredible progress in rescue.  When we initially took him in, he was in such poor shape that we didn't know if he could be saved.  George suffered years of neglect and suffered from extreme dry eye and couldn't close his eyes when he first came into rescue.  In addition to severe ear infections which have left him mostly deaf, he does have a heart murmur but he doesn't let that stop him.  If ever a dog could break your heart at first sight, it was Georgie. After several months of love, amazing medical treatment, George is like a new dog.  He is very quiet and easy to please. He needs to be carried outside to do his business and is housetrained if kept on a schedule. He loves to be outside in the sun.  He remembers well and can navigate himself back into the garage all by himself. George is a great eater and is very gentle. With his compromised vision, he does startle easily with hands in front of his face but he loves to be petted and loved on. He just needs to feel safe. George just loves to with or around his people.  George requires a home with a strong veterinary history due to his previous neglect.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website (the OFP website is, 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.
