Meet Groucho!

Groucho is an owner released retired champion born March 12, 1994. He came into our rescue program thanks to the help of Southern Shih Tzu Rescue. Groucho came with his friend Gladys but does not need to be placed with her. Groucho has had his make-over. He has been neutered and had his teeth and ears cleaned and is up to date on his shots.

This little guy is full of personality and has a lot of love to give to someone willing to give him a foster or permanent home.

Groucho is being fostered in Birmingham Alabama.

If you would like more information, contact Margie Simon, 713-783-8887. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Groucho has been Adopted!


October 18, 2005 Update:

Grouch and Glady are enjoying their retirement. Groucho spends his days napping on the couch with me and his nights sleeping with Gladys in their bed. One of my poms is a homewrecker and sometimes tries to cuddle up to Groucho, but Gladys doesn’t mind. As long as she’s warm and someone pets her, she’s happy. Groucho is on medication for his ears and arthritis. We got little microwave heat packs to put under his bed, so he stays nice and limber. It’s starting to be fall around here, so they got new sweaters and I think we’re ready for winter. Gladys is blind as a bat and deaf as a post, but we could be eating a twinkie behind closed doors across the house and she would find us. She has very bad table manners and tries desperately to climb onto the coffee table if we eat in the living room. We have to feed her in a separate room to buy us enough time to eat. She got her hair cut and now she’s all shaved down with a big fluffy topknot. She looks like Phyllis Diller. She is a very, very happy little girl. Groucho dances around when we come home (Gladys doesn’t notice – she’s usually asleep) and he LOVES going for a ride in the car. We have a hard time going to work because he blocks the front door thinking he gets to go, too. They are such joys.

Thanks much,
