Shih Tzu - Emree - Small - Adult - Female - Dog
Emree was found running loose on the mean streets of Memphis by a Good Samaritan who took her to the Animal Emergency Center. AEC contacted us to take this sweet, tiny girl.
Emree was extremely emaciated when she was found, likely the result of being on her own and homeless for at least 3 to 6 weeks. She weighed less than 7 lbs, had a minor skin infection (treated) and yeast in both her ears (treated). A quick bath at AEC with medicated shampoo and a quick cleaning out of her ears and Emree felt like she'd had a spa treatment.
In her foster home, Emree literally spent her first week sleeping in a comfy plush bed and eating two to three meals a day--that is how exhausted she was from her trials. She has caught up on her rest and now is showing her foster mom a sweet, outgoing, diva personality! Emree has no problem letting Momma Julie know if she wants to eat, to get a drink or to go outside or just get some much deserved lap time.
We estimate Emree's age to be between 6 and 8 years, which is middle aged for a Shih Tzu. She is heartworm negative, spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and microchipped.
Emree's ideal home will have a fenced yard. She would love a settled family to snuggle with or take leisurely walks on a crisp autumn day. An prior history of excellent vet care for current/previous pets is required. Previous specific breed experience will be given preference. Emree's adoption fee is $150.
AN ADOPTION FEE IS REQUIRED FOR THIS PET.
If you are interested in adopting, have a look at our adoption website , read the online adoption agreement , complete the online adoption application , and submit it. Unless otherwise specified above in the dog's bio, adoption fees are $150.

We adopt dogs from Memphis Animal Shelter when we can. The shelter has an 83% euthanasia rate, one of the highest in the country. Unfortunately, any dog coming from Memphis Animal Shelter, and most other shelters for that matter, will have been in contact with contagious illness. Even though the dogs have been in foster care and appear to be in good health, they may become stressed when changing environments and exhibit signs and symptoms of illness. If you have other pets, they need to be up to date on vaccines before bringing a shelter dog into your home. We will take the adopted animal back, but we are not responsible for your other animal's vet care. We always disclose where the dogs have come from. Please ask for any information about the dogs and exercise due caution if you have immunocompromised animals.
