    Dusty is an almost 2byear old shih-tzu. He is very playful and affectionate most of the time. He has resource guarding issues and has bitten my young kids several times. He has also snapped at my husband and bitten my mom. He would do well with a single adult or couple willing to give him patience. We love him very much but, he is just not safe with my 3 year old.

    Hi Folks! Meet ME-the cutest potbellied pig around'|just kidding, I'm a dog, but I'm a bit chunky! I am a Dandie Dinmont Terrier/ Shih Tzu mix and am about 5 years old. I was originally a stray living in some bushes along a very busy country highway and from what the residents in that area said, I was there from 3-6 months. I was a really smart little guy, because I never even got caught by all the coyotes that lived in that area! When my foster mom found out about me she and her friend set up a plan and managed to rescue me. The people I was staying with are ... (Read More)having problems so here I am looking for a new home. I am super sweet and get along with dogs of all sizes, and kids, but can be a little bossy when it comes to food (it's not easy keeping up this voluptuous figure, so I will eat my food and anyone else's I can find!) I like going on car rides, and do really well on a leash. I sleep in my dog bed and am a super-duper love bug. I would do really well in an active house so I can lose some weight and get my studly figure back. If you think I might be the perfect addition to your home, please contact Pia at 714~315~7368 or email her at *Application, Home check, and Adoption contract required. My adoption fee includes my vet checkup, neuter, my 5 way shot, Rabies shot and microchip (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Can you love humans too much? Not according to Zeke, a delightful little Shih Tzu mix. This 5 year old male mixed breed dog is so full of love and devotion for his humans that it tends to get him into hot water every time they go away. Some people call it separation anxiety, but Zeke just thinks it's his duty to make you feel needed. Zeke's family love him to pieces - he's a great little guy - but they want him to be happy, and leaving him home while they go to work and other activities is heart-wrenching for them. They know that while they are away, Zeke is very unhappy. He tries his darndest to excape the confines of his crate indoors, ... (Read More)or if outdoors, tries to dig his way out of his pet, and then the yard, to go and find his family. He hurts himself, and is putting himself in grave danger, should he be hit by a car. Zeke needs owners who are home most of the time. He would be the perfect choice for retired dog lovers looking for a very cute and comical companion. Zeke is fine with other dogs, cats and children. He's just not fine with his own company. Poor little Zeke. If you have the right type of home to give this adorable little Shih Tzu mix, please get in touch. Zeke can't wait to meet you and show you what unconditional, constant love and devotion is all about! Adopt Zeke today! (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    MR. KRINGLE Adorable llaso/shih tzu mix couple of years old. He's a feisty but playful and affectionate little guy that came to us matted to the skin and with a bulging eye that had to be removed. He still does not like to be groomed, bathed or picked up. We have no idea how long he suffered before we were able to help him. He needs a committed home and family that will keep those things in mind and not try to handle/grab him that will just scare him. He's a playful loving boy otherwise, give us a call or email to learn more about him 480.229.9530

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    SAY HELLO TO GRETZKY! Gretzky is a very handsome 6 year old Shih Tzu / Jack Russell mix boy. Weighing in at just 13 pounds, this little sweetheart was surrendered through no fault of his own. Gretzky's elderly owner became ill and was no longer able to provide care for him. Gretzky has been a woman's dog and was raised in a quite household with other dogs. He has been rather sheltered and has not had a great deal of experience in the big wide world. He's protective, eager to please, loves to be on your lap an behaves well in the car. When meeting strangers, he is wary of them ~ again, because of his sheltered life that consisted of his ... (Read More)owner and his housemates. He will need a family who will provide him gentle guidance and patience as he will need to be taken out frequently until he learns a housetraining routine as he had little structure in his former home due to the illness of his owner. Gretzky's ideal adopter would be an adults only home or adults with older teens that live a laid back quiet lifestyle. Gretzky's white with red coat is of a medium length and is low maintenance. He would require regular brushing and grooming every 8 to 12 weeks and of course regular nail trims. This fun little guy would make a wonderful addition to your family! Gretzy's adoption fee is $ 275.00. This fee includes his Veterinarian visits, neuter, all vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, de-worming, microchip and professional groom. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Shih Tzu in Arizona
    Shih Tzu Dogs can make good pets in Arizona 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.
