    ***** Currently Unavailable ***** Handsome Harley D READ FULL PROFILE BEFORE ASKING ABOUT ADOPTION Meet Harley D. A pup with a sweet personality looking for his forever family. Harley is social little guy and loves meeting new friends, going on walks and trips about town. He's an active boy who is willing to keep his person(s) company whatever they are doing. Harley is curious and likes investigate everything that is going on. He loves to be petted and will join you on the couch for a belly rub until something else needs his attention.

He is 2 and 1/2 years old and weighs 16 pounds. He is crate trained and gets along well with other dogs. He is friendly with gentle children and loves to go for car rides. He is well behaved and eager to please. Harley was not house trained when surrendered but is doing well with the training his new family must be willing to continue helping him. To get ready for his new home Harley has been fixed. He is up to date on all his vaccinations. Harley has been microchipped and is in excellent health. He is negative for heart worms and is on flea and heart worm prevention. His adoption fee is $350.00 We do our best to place our fosters in the best place to suite their individual needs. With this goal in mind, we will not place Harley in a home with children under age 8 or in a home with dogs over 30 pounds. He is not suited to apartment life or extended periods alone. His new home must have a fenced yard. Homes with at least one small, friendly dog already present are preferred. Harley's breed requires regular grooming, adopters must be able to commitment to his upkeep. Breed experience is a plus. Harley's new family will need to be able to commit to continuing his house training and regular exercise by daily walks. Harley is a young, active little guy and would do best with an active family to match his personality. FCDF performs a home visit and inspection with the potential animal. NO OUT OF STATE OR AREA ADOPTIONS ARE POSSIBLE. WE REQUIRE A VET REFERENCE. FCDF will not adopt into a home with unfixed dog or cat is present. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Shih Tzu in Alabama
    Shih Tzu Dogs can make good pets in Alabama if they match your IifestyIe. The Shih-Tzu is a toy breed similar to the Pekingese. Shih-Tzus are proud little dogs and loaded with personality. Shih-Tzus are gentle and do fine with children who are taught to respect the dogs. Shih-Tzus bark to announce people approaching their homes. Shih-Tzus need early obedience training and may require patience when housebreaking. A Shih-Tzu will do just fine in an apartment if it gets enough exercise.
