Hi friends, it’s me, Georgia! I’m an active and very playful 1 year old 12lb shih tzu/maltese mix little girl.

My foster mom says I am one of the most affectionate and easy going dogs she has ever fostered!! I love snuggles & cuddles, play time, toys, walk time, car rides and am very social with everyone I have met in my adventures.

When I first got here, we had to do a little practice with me getting used to going potty while walking on a leash. I’ve pretty much got the hang of that now, just be sure to not rush me, give me time to do the “sniffies” to find the perfect spot to do my business and we’ll be good. I have very good leash manners and am an easy dog to walk. If you take me out regularly and often until we get to know each others routines, I’ll have this “housebroken” thing down pat in no time!

My hair is kinda short right now, I had to get shaved when I got here because I was so matted and quite a hot mess. My hair will grow back, so keep that in mind because I’ll need regular grooming to keep me looking my very best!

I absolutely love other friendly and playful dogs similar in size to me. (no big doggies please) playing and sharing toys and beds with my doggie friends is good, but my favorite thing is to do with my friends is zoomies and wrestle. I could be an only dog, so long as you are my playmate and you have friends with dogs that I could play with too. Or, I could join a home with an already established friendly, similar size pup (which I definitely prefer). I don’t want to be left alone for long periods of time, so if you work full time outside the home, I’m just not the pup for you, but please take a look at the other doggie’s available for adoption here at VIP.

I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am current on my heartworm and flea prevention. Does it sound like we could be each others forever? I’m ready to find my “fur”ever home! Please visit to fill out an adoption application

ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt. To qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, they must be current on all vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care. If you’ve had more than one Vet in the past 3 years please provide all the names and number for each vet. This breed typically lives 12-15 years, so please keep that lifespan in mind, as your age should be appropriate for the pets estimated lifespan.

ADOPTION APPLICATIONS: Please visit to fill out an adoption application and to also see the many other wonderful pets in our Rescue waiting for their “fur”ever home. All of our staff at VIP Rescue are Volunteers, so please be kind and patient. All information provided in the Adoption application will remain confidential and not be shared outside of designated VIP Rescue Volunteers. We do contact your veterinarian, references, and other information based on the information provided in your application.

Incomplete applications or lack of a response from your veterinarian or references will not be processed. We receive many applications for our rescue dogs and for that we are grateful. We select the most fitting application for the dog, not necessarily the timeliest adoption application. Thank you for thinking rescue!
