Please note - "Non-shedder" breeds like Poodles, Lhasas, Shih Tzus, Bichons and Schnauzers, NEED regular grooming - otherwise their hair becomes painfully matted.
The animal shelters see a large number of these breeds come in poor condition due to neglect.
Other breeds like Cockers Spaniels and Aussies, Malamutes also can becomes very matted if not regularly brushed/groomed.

Hello, my name is Sandy! I am a scared girl who is looking for that special family who can be patient while I warm up, and provide me with some TLC! I came to the shelter matted but my shelter friends are in the process of cleaning me up. I have been peacefully coexisting with another small dog and might enjoy a similar one in my new family! Because I'm a little nervous, a family without young children is preferred. Please ask about me! I am around 3 years old and weigh 12 pounds
