Tonik, the dog now lnown as "the dog with the human face", is now up for adoption in the midwest. The Shih Tzu/Poodle mix from an Indiana animal welfare agency became a "star" after his photos were posted on the internet.
Tonik, whose face shows human-like expression came to the Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group from a kill shelter in Kentucky.
His Petfinder page says this about him: " Tonik came to us from a kill shelter in Kentucky and there is a very sweet boy in there who is trying to figure things out and enjoy people. It seems he has not had too much socialization. He is great with other dogs. He is not dangerous, but should not be placed with young children because he will get too overwhelmed. He will need a home with lots of patience & good energy. His approx.birth date is 02/01/11 and he weighs 11#. He has been vet. checked, neutered, micro chipped, heart worm tested negative is up to date on routine shots & wormings including rabies & has been treated with advantage multi per our protocol. He has been pro. groomed since his photos were taken. His adoption donation is $250 and needs to be cash, cashier's check or money order. We do not ship or transport. Please email for an application if you would like to provide this pet with his forever home."
