*10 Year Old
*Brown & White Shih Tzu/Peke mix
My name is Beau and I am an approximately 10 year old neutered male Shih Tzu/ Peke mix. I was surrendered to a local shelter on 12/28/20 after my owner passed away. On 1/11/21, the shelter performed surgery on me since my dental disease was so severe and my jaw was fractured. On 2/7/21, I had to have a second surgery to stabilize my jaw since the tubing fell out on 2/6/21. I was so very fortunate that the veterinarian who did my surgery wanted to foster me in order to monitor my healing. On 3/30/21 my final surgery was performed to remove the tubing securing my jaw. I was monitored for several days to make sure I was comfortable and able to eat without pain or difficulty. On 4/9/21, I was finally able to go to rescue. I am doing very well in foster care and will be getting a complete health check up to make sure all of my needs are taken care of. The shelter did note that I have some arthritis as well as a Grade II heart murmur. More information coming soon since I am so new to rescue.
