Scarlett was trying to find a new home in NJ and it just wasn’t happening, since she went blind she started pooping in her crate when left alone. This sweet girl is about 8 pounds and very tiny for a shih tzu. She’s a gloriously happy little dust mop!
Scarlett lost one eye in December 2017 when it prolapsed and needed to be removed surgically. Sadly, in February 2018 she went blind in her other eye – unknown reason. Foster mom believes she has some vision in the one eye.
This sweet girl is cuddler and a lover. It took a village to get her from NJ to BCFS, but we managed. Special thanks to Janice & Marcia, Jill & Mechille, Mandy, Jeannine and Nadia. Without people volunteering to help transport would have been impossible.
Mandy did the first leg picking up in NJ and meeting Janice & Marcia in Long Island where Scarlett was driven to Albany! So many thanks!
Scarlett would be picked up by Jill and Mechille and kept over night. She spent her night cuddling and watching Netflix. In the morning her journey continued, driven by Jeannine, who brought her to Rochester where Nadia drove the final leg to Scarlett’s new foster home. Over 450 miles all done by volunteers who drove and paid for gas to get this sweet girl into the care of BCFS.
From Scarlett’s foster mom:
She is piddling all the time outside, pooping outside if gone for long walk and no snow (doesn’t like snow) getting the hang of grass slowly, has separation anxiety when left alone so poops in kennel, extremely cuddly and affectionate And can eat everything. Loves to be with you all the time…has some vision but can’t do stairs or jump off furniture. She is a cutie Pattie.
She has excellent hearing and rarely barks!
Do you have lots of time to cuddle sweet Scarlett? This little one would do well in a house with another little dog. Due to her size children and big dogs would be unsafe. Open your heart and your home to this wee discarded dog.

Scout is very friendly and playful. She is a happy little girl full of love. She loves to play tug of war, or hide your slippers. Her tail never stops wagging and she’s constantly puts a smile on our faces.
She gets along well with our pups and is always game for an adventure. She’s good in the car and her house training is coming along nicely.
She’s great with kids and people of all ages. I will her as a foster pup, but I’m happy to see her go onto the next chapter in her furever home!
Keller and Cricket have a lot in common: they are both Chihuahuas, they both spent approximately 10 months in foster care, and they both were adopted by the same wonderful woman!
We are fortunate to have received some insight into the new lives of these two pups.
According to their new mom, Keller (pictured above) is very busy, loves to be under the covers, and has proven to be a real bed hog. He is even refusing to sleep in his crate when he knows he can instead be under the covers. Can you blame him?
Cricket (pictured above) is a cuddle bug. It took a few days, but he warmed up well to the family and now loves belly rubs. He has even been described as the “perfect little dog” and exactly what his new mom was looking for.
It took a little patience, but we are so happy that Keller and Cricket are now living the lives they deserve with their forever family.
