Our family looked for many months and had no luck to find a male Shih Tzu.. I immediately fell in love with George on her website. I found Dorene and she was so amazing with walking us through the process. She talked with me for an hr and explained all I had to do prepare for his arrival. I got photos of him and updates weekly. The day came to pick him up and I was so excited! We arrived at her beautiful home and i felt an immediate sense of zen. It was so peaceful. She was standing at the door with George in her arms. It was love at first site! She was so thorough on all her paperwork and gave us extra food! He has been home for a week and she has continued to check in on George and support us as a family With any tips we needed! We are so blessed we found Dorene and her family. I have talked about her to everyone! I will adopt again and have a feeling my family will too!
