Update on my puppy search

Just wanted to update those who were such a help on my puppy search. Answering questions and providing sightful, helpful, information!

Anyway on June 7 a friend of mine contacted me to say that they knew someone who had a Shih Tzu/mix puppy who needed a home. The owners were not able to take care of her and she needed Vet care.

I made no promises to take the little one in but did agree to meet with them. There were two puppies but the owners refused to let the little boy go and since I was not paying money I had no leverage. I left my phone number and said that if they needed to rehome the boy to let me know. Missy Mae came home with me that day.

She went the very next day to the Vet where I was told she had ear mites, a yeast infection and a bacterial infection. $131 dollars later we left the Vets office. I was told that she was 13 weeks old and she weighed 6.5 lbs.

Two weeks later the owners called and said that they could not take care of little boy so I meet them again with my cousin. She fell in love (who can resist a puppy) and named him Maverick. The next day he was taken to the Vet and again we were told he had ear mites and a bacterial infection.

They are both eating Wellness Puppy 5 mix and doing well. Missy Mae's ears are red and itchy again so she is going back to the Vet tomorrow to see what is going on with her. We might need to change her to a differrent food, like Duck and Potatoes. Maverick's ears look much better but he is going in too for a re-check!
Here are some pictures of them.

They did great on the 4th and slept, out on my deck, through the fireworks. Missy Mae however let us know the "evil" train was coming. Every time the train whistle would blow (it was 2 miles from my house) she would bark and howl.

Congratulations, they're adorable. It sounds like they both needed a good home and you and your cousin will provide that for them. How nice that they will still get to grow up together
