As an update to this thread .....

My partner and I "adopted" Alfie back in November (we already had another Shih Tzu).

Despite considerable efforts, including getting letters published in local newspapers, and contacting all the vets in the area, we couldn't trace his former family, so it looks like he will be staying permanently.

After treatment with medicated shampoo, his skin condition has subsided and his coat has regrown. Careful feeding (including supplements for older dogs), gentle exercise, brushing, but most of all a lot of TLC have transformed him. He is much more active and is a happy little chap. Not knowing how old he is (he may be much younger than first thought - he was in poor condition) we can only guess at his life expectancy, but all is well with him at the moment.

Cheers

Thakyou ! I think the only one to disagree migh be Harvey, who after eight years of being the "spoilt rotten only child" now has to cope with this unwanted interloper ...... he was utterly agahst at fiirst, but has - somehow - managed to adapt ....

Alf realy is a different person from the thin, itchy, tired and confused little chap that we collected five moinths ago. It's only by looking at the "then and now" pictures that one can see the change.

This pic was taken on a walk on a local footpath about two weeks ago.

We have had Alfie exactly a year today, 6 November.

This is a pic of him taken in our local park last Sunday.

We have had alfie for two years as of 6 November 2010. The old boy is still plodding along (thought to be 15 now). He sleeps a great deal, but he seems to be healthy and pain-free, and still loves his walks, being brushed and fussed, and enjoys his food.

We are used to having a Little Old Man in the house now - he has a few problems with his Old Gentleman's Waterworks Trouble - and we can thoughly recommend taking in an older dog;  he's such an amazing character. You might think he's a doddery pensioner ... and then suddenly he does something that makes you realise he's still sharp as a tack when it comes to getting something he wants.

We're looking forward to his third Christmas with us, and fingers crossed for another November 6th anniversary.
