Beautiful Bonnie: RSPCA Shih Tzu

Beautiful Bonnie: RSPCA Shih Tzu



‘Rescue’ is my favourite breed

Bonnie (Bon Bon, Bonay Shonay) is a Shih Tzu adopted from the RSPCA Woodside Centre in Leicester, when she was just 11 months old. She has spent the first steps of her life in a puppy farm being disgustingly treated and unkept.

We went to the Rescue Centre just for a walk around to see if there were any dogs that took our eye… we had a look around and had no luck. Just when we were about to leave the lady at the desk asked what we were looking for, we said a ‘young, girl, and cute’.

Then skipping round the corner came Bonnie (who was originally named Gremlin). We couldn’t believe that such a cute little ball of fluff could have been mistreated and we signed her off straight away.


The photo above was the day we met newly name Bonnie, she was such a happy little soul and considering her start to life we were so surprised. She was just AMAZING…

A week after signing her off she was officially ours and we could take her home, she soon settled in and was naturally a part of the family like she alway’s had been. She soon became the boss of the house and gave me and mum something to have a healthy ‘unhealthy’ obsession over! Bonnie quickly became the most spoilt dog that I know.The First Ever Trim

Then it came to the “fresh trim” her first ever time at the groomers. Safe to say she was not as impressed as we had first hoped. Bless her! She was so matted they had no choice but to shave her nearly nude…

img_0910.jpgI would recommend Shih Tzu as a breed to anyone as they are so loving, and have the kindest temperament, but also have a crazy side when they are excited. She has the sassiest personality, but thats why we wouldn’t change her for the world!


Bonnie is now having the best life ever with us, and enjoyed her first summer in the outdoors enjoying them ‘Hawaiian vibes’.

If you have any dog Rescue stories I would love to hear them or any funny dog stories.

Stay Bloomin Brilliant 🙂
