Old Shih Tzu With Skin Problems Left Abandoned & Tied to Fence Under the Hot Sun
An old Shih Tzu was found tied to SPCA’s fence at Sungei Tengah Road in Singapore.
The incident happened back in April 2019 where the poor doggy was left alone under the hot sun. According to SPCA, the little dog who was probably more than 10 years old had some skin problems and infections.
It is not known how the dog got there or who had tied it to the fence, but it was found abandoned and tied to the fence. Fortunately, Lawrence, an SPCA staff, found it and brought it in for treatment.
Not long after, the little doggy was nursed back to health again and was adopted by Lawrence, who named it Sunshine.
From being an abandoned dog, Sunshine is now spoilt by his owner who pushes Sunshine around in a pram when they go gai gai (for a walk).
In a video posted by SPCA, Lawrence shows off all the different thin shirts he puts on Sunshine to protect his sensitive skin from the sun. He even shows the different types of cloth he uses to clean Sunshine’s eyes, body and tail, adding that the dog’s eyes are often dry.
While Shih Tzus are super cute, people should know that this kind of dog breed is prone to several potential health risks that, if not taken care of properly, could lead to serious illnesses.
