Melvin a sweet 6 year-old Shih Tzu mix who was unfortunately injured in a home-grooming accident in August and was in need of medical treatment. A Rocket Dog volunteer set up a fundraiser for him and got him into a caring foster home to help him with his recovery. He’s healed nicely at this point, but continues to have some sensitive skin; he may have some allergies or dermatitis that will need further care and attention ongoing.
He is currently in foster with another dog his size and is very friendly with her. He’s silly, sweet, and playful and would love to have a home of his own! He’s been polite meeting other dogs on walks, and seems like he could do okay in a home with a cat, with proper introductions.
Melvin’s ideal home will be committed to his medical care and getting him on the right diet and grooming regimen. He needs some reinforcement in basic training and more than anything a lap to cuddle on as much as he wants (ALL THE TIME!).
If you are interested in providing Melvin with his forever home, please submit an application and a volunteer will be in touch. (KF/PB)
