Closeup of a Black Dog

Adoptable Resident: Abner


Hi, my name is Abner and I’m a 13-year-old neutered male Shih Tzu. I’m pretty darn cute, don’t you think? I was brought into the local shelter in November 2021 as a stray and I didn’t look so good. I had skin infections, probably from fleas. My owner didn’t take very good care of me. But FLFO rescued me and I am very healthy now! I have a condition called dry eye which simply requires daily prescription eye drops. I may not see or hear too well but that never stops me. I’m a very affectionate boy but not needy. I can be quite independent! I love to sleep on my cozy bed but I also love to play with my squirrel toy. I get along great with other dogs. Yes, I’m just about perfect and am looking for a home who will appreciate and love me forever. My adoption fee is $200.
