Happy, bouncy, playful Lugnut is hereby proclaimed by his foster mom to be the bestest boy ever! This 1-2 year old Shih-Tzu mix captured everyone’s heart within about half a second of our team meeting him! 
He is bouncy, pouncy, and there’s no one quite like him! Lugnut is free from his matted hair entrapment, and he is feeling great!  He loves being with his humans, but is quite capable of entertaining himself with his toys. Seriously, this boy loves his toys! ALL. THE. TOYS. New parents better hit the store and get lots and LOTS of toys!  Lugnut has to have a toy with him wherever he goes, but especially when he goes outside. If he drops it, he has to stop and pick it up. He simply can’t get enough of playing with his toys. He loves to run in the back yard, and will do zoomies with you or the kids.  He will chase the ball, and *GASP* he will let you take it from him and throw it again!  One of his favorite places to be when in the house is on the back of the couch, looking out the front window. He loves to watch the world go by. He also has to take his trusty toys there. So, now there is a collection of toys on the window sill! He is so silly!
Lugnut is house trained. He does not mind being in his crate. He sleeps all night and is just SUCH a good boy. Do you like to sleep in? COOL! Lugnut isn’t the type to wake you up a 5am to pee! He is happy to be lazy with you, and get up when you tell him to. What a relief! This little darling is a true joy to be around! This lil’ man gets along with adults, kids, and other dogs, too. He is the most delightful little dog ever! Fill out an adoption application and come see for yourself! 

KNOWN HISTORY – Lugnut was found running stray, and rumored to have been left behind when his family skipped town. He was in absolutely ATROCIOUS condition, and was pretty much unrecognizeable as a dog. The matting was severe and excruciating. He can NEVER be allowed to get into that condition ever again. 

Won’t you please consider adding this precious, sweet, loving little boy to your family? If you are not quite ready to add a new member to your family, won’t you please #SHARE our adoptable kiddos on social media? You never know when your share is the share that will bring them home.

Lugnut’s adoption fee is $550 and includes neuter, microchip with free lifetime registration, age appropriate vaccinations, and dewormers. He will come home with a hobo bag of things to help him get started in his new furever home. You can apply to welcome him into your family by completing an adoption application below.

Please understand that adopting from P.R.A.R. means FOREVER. Please do NOT apply if you do not have the time to properly train and exercise a dog (now and in the future) or if you do not meet the minimum adoption requirements for the dog in which you are applying.

Please read each question carefully and answer thoroughly!
