“Thank you for caring enough to save me! Woof!”

In spirit of the holiday today we have a tear jerker story that actually ended up on a very happy note. Here’s some St. Patrick’s Day dog inspiration to celebrate with. Have a wonderful day!

St. Patrick’s Day Dog Inspiration

He once lived in a tiny cage, but now the Shih Tzu-Maltese mix has a wonderful life thanks to Rosie the Chihuahua.

 

To see photos of Colwyn, an adorable Shih TzuMaltese mix, you would never know this spotlessly coiffed and costumed dog was ever anything but adored, but his early life was certainly not picture perfect.

 

“Here’s this little puppy mill dog who was scared to death, and now he’s like this little model,” says Colwyn’s human, Lisa Murphy, who frequently photographs her fashionable pup for his Facebook page.

 

Murphy is no stranger to the realities of puppy mills and backyard breeding. Prior to adopting Colwyn, she brought home another shy puppy mill rescue, a beautiful Shih Tzu named Macy. Murphy was also a close friend to Rosie the Chihuahua, who was born into a backyard breeding/hoarding situation and suffered from almost every congenital defect possible. She created the Everything Rosie website and helped manage the dog’s Facebook page. Murphy was devastated when Rosie and her own senior dog, Diva, both crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2013.
