When Gizmo first arrived at New Lease on Life, he was a bit of a mess.
The people who originally found him on the street didn’t see him as a cute, friendly dog. They saw him as a quick way to make some cash. Even though they didn’t know his background and hadn’t even bothered to groom him, they were trying to sell him as a stud dog.
But thankfully, his bad hairdo worked in his favor. No one wanted to pay for a dog who looked like Cousin It at the time, so they finally gave up and gave him to their neighbor, who happened to be one of our foster moms.
Now, Gizmo is looking good, sporting his new do, and quite proud of it. He was so proud on the grooming table as the last of the scruffy fur came off.
Gizmo is a 1 1/2 year old Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso. He weighs approx 15 pounds. You can meet him at the Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 1pm to 7pm.
