Every Wednesday at 8:40, Guardian Angel Pet Rescue joins the Mike and Mandy show to showcase a special animal that needs a good home.
This week’s featured pet is Chino.
Chino is a 1-2 year old male Shih Tzu that weighs 23 pounds. Chino has had a rough life so far and is looking for person with a big heart that would like to show him that there are good people out there. His previous family stuck in him the yard and did nothing but give him food and water. His fur became so matted that it took a week of careful, slow snipping to get it loose. The mats were so tight that they drew Chino’s fur up, painfully… On top of this when he was attacked by a dog (no doubt a big one) injuring his eye and the owner failed take him to the vet. This was Chino’s condition when he was rescued. Since then Chino had his eye operated on, it had to be removed as it had gotten infected but is now healing well. Because Chino was left out during thunder storms he is afraid of loud noises. In the last few weeks Chino has blossomed, becoming a sweet, loving little guy that likes to play with small dogs (he’s afraid of big dogs). His fur has not yet grown in enough for him to be groomed properly but he will look very cute once a little more time has passed. Since he has been blind in 1 eye since it was injured he is used to this and it does not hamper his activities at all. Chino can’t wait to find his new forever home and be shown the love, care and attention he has never received prior to being rescued!
