About Derek Jeter

Shih Tzu
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

This poor boy came into the shelter so badly matted that he could not walk. He was shaved down to find a beautiful small grey and white Shih Tzu. FCCR agreed to help him and he is just now learning to walk again at his foster home. 'DJ' is a very sweet 10 year old loving boy & is really quite adorable. Since arriving to the rescue Derek Jeter has come out of his shell. He is vision impaired and still walks with a bit of 'swagger'. Although he does not play with the other dogs, he insists on being around them. He wants to be outside with them; he wants to be in the bedroom with them. He even claimed one of the other dog's beds as his own. He is learning to love and be loved. For such a tiny little guy, he really has a BIG personality. His new family will need to be patient with him. Undoing years of neglect will take time. In just the few months he has been with FCCR, he has made great progress. I have no doubt that he will continue to do so in a new and equally as loving forever home.
