Chestnut the Shih Tzu


Hazelnut and Chestnut got adopted TOGETHER! Yay! When they arrived from Korea, Hazelnut( mom) and Chestnut (son) were going to be fostered separately but after seeing their special bond, they went to the same foster home so they could stay together as long as possible.

Their foster family fell in love with this adorable and bonded pair and decided to adopt them together.

We would like to thank the Lee family for fostering and adopting these adorable nuts 😊
