Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Stanley was found hiding under a car, scared and matted on every inch of his poor little body. Based on his condition it is clear that he had either been severely neglected or on the streets for awhile. After a major clean up, he immediately moved into a foster home. He is house trained and will use a doggie door. He is fine with other dogs, but doesn't interact much. He Loves people and finds peace and comfort just being close to his person. He will give you very sweet and tender kisses and snuggle up next to you when invited. Please help us find him a new loving home.

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-04-00036Trinity (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi my name is Trinity. I am a super sweet girl, I get along with other dogs, and I am potty trained as long as you let me out when I scratch at the door. I would probably do well with a doggy door to go outside when needed! I love to have my belly rubbed and I like to sit in your lap and be petted. I also like to wander around the yard and house. I am 10 years old and I weigh 14 pounds and it is very important that I do not gain any more weight because I am diabetic. 14 pounds is perfect for me. I need to eat high fiber, low fat hard dog food twice a day. About a heaping 1/3 cup is good for my breakfast and my dinner. At lunch, I can have a ... (Read More)snack like a milk bone. About 5-15 minutes after my breakfast and dinner I get a little shot of 2 units of insulin in the scruff of my neck. It is easy to give me my shot and I'm a very good girl and don't mind at all. Like many Shih Tzu's my eyes are a little dry. I just need over the counter lubricating eye drops 3-4 times a day. Cystane is a good brand of drops. If my eyes every start to lose their shine and seem dry I may need prescription drops instead. If my eyes are ever dry please take me to see a vet as permanent eye damage could occur. You can tell your vet my glucose was 114 on February 2, 2017. It will need to be checked periodically. Arizona Small Dog Rescue has really loved me and taken care of me. I originally was at the county kill shelter with a large tumor over my left eye. They had it removed when I was spayed, and now I can see from both eyes again! This is why I have a little scar above my left eye. I hope to find the right family that will love me and take care of me the way the rescue has. Could you be my family? Trinity is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, dental done, licensed, vet checked. She comes with 30 days of free pet insurance (with option to extend), a free vet visit, and her remaining insulin & supplies. To meet Trinity, contact Kim at 602-323-7270 (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Happy, sweet, obedient, very loving & friendly but will let you know when strangers come around. He barely barks. He is just as adorable with longer hair but had just been groomed and wearing one of his coats in picture. Very obedient. My son just moved out I am moving into a studio size apt the end of the month and work. He's fine alone but I can't take him to new apt. Breaks my heart to let him go but have no choice. We rescued him and were told he's a pure bred Shih Tzu but no papers. It didn't matter to us we feel in love with him instantly and have had him almost 4 years.

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    SAY HELLO TO TANK! Tank is a GORGEOUS and simply adorable purebred Shih Tzu boy. He is 9 years young and he came to us having previously been used as a breeding dog. Tank is a little roly-poly oh so happy boy! He loves to lay on his back in his dog bed. He has not had a lot of time in the house but is willing to please .. so he will need some gentle guidance with house training. With his foster, he sometimes wears a 'belly band' in the house. He gets along with almost everybody he meets. He does well with most other dogs and is OK with some cats. Tank is a very easy-going boy who would enjoy being the center of attention, going for ... (Read More)walks and having his very own family. Tank is a long coated breed, so he will require daily brushing and professional grooming every six to eight weeks. Tank's adoption fee is 350.00 which includes his neuter, vaccinations, microchip, rabies and professional groom. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-16-00446Bean (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Mr Bean is the sweetest most loving friend. He loves to be held and scratched. Unfortunately his owners are unable to donate the time he needs. He was born without tear ducts so he needs his eyes cleaned a few times daily and moisture drops put in. He also limps at times. I suspect he has joint pain. He is kennel trained and potties outdoors. Mr Bean would make a wonderful and loving companion for someone who has time several times a day to take care of his needs. Mr Bean does not tolerate the summer heat.

    There are two small dogs, one is Shih Tzu, white, she is approx. 4 years old. There is also her companion who is part Chihuahua and poodle. He is about two years old. They are good dogs, but want to know if there may be a foster home for them, until you can find the right home. I would not suggest small children and would very much like them together. She is not spayed and he is not neutered. Let me know if you can help

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    Dionne came to us from the county shelter....what a hot mess she was! This poor girl had clearly had a rough life before rescue. She was not spayed, had mammary tumors, and a mouthful of rotten teeth. A trip to the vet took care of all that. She has 2 teeth, is now spayed, tumors gone. We named her Dionne, after Dionne and the Belmont's hit single 'The Wanderer'--as that is what she used to do--wander--all over the house, the yard, seemingly aimless. That pretty much has stopped, and now when she's not sleeping or eating--she runs! She loves to gallop in the yard--it's so cute. She gets along with everyone in the home--humans, ... (Read More)dogs, cats--not a mean bone in her body. She also NEVER barks! She shares food, beds, toys, everything. She is just a sweet, gentle soul. She sometime has trouble staying upright on polished floors, carpeting/rugs are easier for her. She is a sweet old lady who deserves to live the rest of her life indoors, as a cherished family member. (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.

lnteresting Shih Tzu Trivia Low-Cost Arizona Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Shih-Tzu means Lion Dog in Mandarin. Paintings of dogs resembling Shih-Tzus exist dating back to the sixteenth century. Shih-Tzus were popular with Chinese royalty. Chinese did not allow Shih-Tzus out of the country until the 1930s.
