ALEXIS, N.C. --- Our featured pet for this week is a Shih Tzu mix named Lilo.  She is 3-years-old and weighs 8-pounds.  Lilo should not get any bigger.  She has beautiful silky hair which will need grooming several times a year.  Lilo is good with other dogs and loves people.  She is a beautiful little girl that loves to be snuggled.  Lilo is current on vaccines, micro-chipped and has been spayed.

The Shih Tzu mix has long been a popular designer breed. Known for its adorable roundish face, this hybrid originated in the United States and is known to be quietly affectionate. Some of you might have a preference for certain colors when it comes to dogs and you’d be glad to know that the Shih Tzu mix does come in a variety of colors, including black, brown, cream or white, or a combination of those. Many dog lovers have a weakness for its adorable cute, floppy ears if it takes after its Shih Tzu parent.  In addition, because of their adaptability and size, they also make good apartment dogs. Just remember though, some owners describe the Shih Tzu as a shy character if not properly given the chance to socialize and mingle with other humans or dogs. So take a walk in the park, and this way you’ll both get the exercise and interaction you need.


The Tri-County Animal Rescue BIG DOG Pet of the Week is this beautiful Husky mix named Phoebe.  She is 3 years old, good with kids, good with other dogs, good with cats and loves both inside and outside. Phoebe is crate trained, house trained and knows basic commands.  She has a beautiful tan and cream coat. Check out that beautiful blue eye!  Phoebe is playful and loves to romp around the yard.  If you need a walking buddy then please give this sweet girl a chance!  Phoebe is spayed, current on vaccines and micro-chipped.

Please stop in to visit the pets this weekend at PetSmart in Gastonia because the dogs and cats love the attention.  They will be looking for you so come on out for some family fun.  We also have other pets available for adoption at the Gastonia PetSmart located at 3698 East Franklin Boulevard.  Tri-County Animal Rescue will be available Saturday noon to 6 p.m.  Don’t forget!
