Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Our family is saddened that we have to re-home our Cocoa. Cocoa is 7 years old, Dachshund mix, current on all shots, house broken, micro-chipped, doggie door trained. Ideal home is someone older with NO children and NO other dogs. She is having a problem with the lack of attention given to her because of our two year old daughter and that is why we must re-home her. She is very sweet otherwise and really needs to go to a home with NO kids and NO other dogs. We will be extremely involved in the re-homing process to make sure she finds a good home.

    Meet Winston Churchill and William Wallace! Winston is a 6 year old Shih Tzu and Brussels Griffon mix weighing at about 16lb and William is a 5 year old Cairn Terrier mix weighing at about 12lbs. These boys were surrendered by their previous owners due to them moving out of the country and not being able to take them with. These boys are the absolute sweetest duo looking for their forever homes together! Winston had to get one of his back legs amputated due to being hit by a car, but being three-legged does not slow down this boy one bit! Winston and William are both extremely friendly and outgoing boys who love to be cuddled up and held. ... (Read More)They love to play with toys, and William's favorites are ones that squeak! Winston and William are used to being around women but have no prior history to being around men or children. They both do not get along with cats but do great with older small dogs. Winston and William are both kennel trained, ride well in the car, and are good on a leash, as they love to go for walks! Both boys are house broken, and know how to use a doggy door, however Winston does sometimes mark. Winston and William would do great in an active home, despite their age these boys have tons of energy! Come meet this sweet duo and let them show you how wonderful they are! Their adoption fee is $400 as a pair. They are both neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, licensed, and vet checked.

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-18-00247OZZIE and OREO (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Making their debut at this Sunday's event (8/20), Ozzie and Oreo (m & f) are hoping to meet their new and forever family. Their papa has become very ill and they are losing him :( Ozzie & Oreo have been staying with family, however, with their schedules, the dogs are home alone for many, many hours and the family is sad to give up these sweet dogs, but wants a better life for them where people are around and can give them a lot more love an attention than in their current situation. Both dogs are shy at first. Ozzie (the boy) actually screams with fear when being picked up by a stranger, and Oreo also cowers and will shy away. But in a ... (Read More)short time in their foster home, they were walking around like bosses, exploring, wagging their tail, and ready to climb into a lap. It will take some time and TLC, getting on the floor with them, offering treats, gentle and quiet slow approach -- but they can be won over. Because their world has just been turned upside down and they are nervous around new people to begin with, if there are children in the home, we request they are a minimum of 13 years old and have a complete understanding of the gentle interaction that these dogs deserve. They also require a home with an enclosed and safe yard (no apartment or condo setting for them). These two are not to be separated -- they are adoptable as a pair. Both are just over 2 years old, housebroken, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. After their trip to the doggy beauty salon Saturday, they'll also have a fresh groom and be ready for adoption. Ozzie is a Pekingese mix and Oreo (black) is a Shih Tzu. Adoption fee for the pair is $550.00. Meet them SUNDAY at Pet Club, 9325 E Shea Blvd in Scottsdale. Event is 11am until 1:45pm. You may request an application in advance for pre-approval -- please email adopt@pwrescue.org (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-16-00348Skipper (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    **Please read Skippers bio before sending an inquiry. He came from a hoarding situation and needs a special home** Our rescue received a call about a breeder/hoarding situation, 45 dogs living in one small trailer needed immediate rescue. 8 rescue groups combined forces and rescued them all. Skipper is one of the 6 pups we rescued. All the pups were extremely undersocialized, some having zero human contact. They were all fearful and huddled in one big pile. Skipper has spent several months in foster care and we believe he is now ready for his forever home. Here are a few requirements for his forever home: *At least one very ... (Read More)friendly, social, not overly dominant dog. Skipper feeds off other dogs and follows their lead. A social dog who is friendly to humans will help him adjust. Overly dominant or aggressive dogs will frighten him, he will hide and not come out. *A very secure yard with a 6 foot fence. *Very loving and patient humans 'Bonding' will not happen instantly. If you expect an instant connection he is not the dog for you. He will bond with the canines in the home first. Skipper had a horrible start in life, we have worked very hard to get him to adoptable status--he adores his foster family but is ready to find his forever home *Neutered *Vaccinated *Heartworm/tick fever negative *Dewormed *Groomed (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-15-00225KELLY SUE (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Kelly Sue (goes by 'SuLing') is a precious Shih Tzu / Poodle mix who didn't get the best start in life. She same from a situation of about 50 dogs -- all who received little to no human attention or interaction. That said, she's a very slow-go when it comes to adjusting to new people and new environments. Her adopter will have to be very special, very loving, patient, understanding, and willing to not give up on her. At first, it may be hard to even pet her, or even pick her up. She probably won't come when called, but in time if you let her come to you, this is how it will need to happen. This very darling little girl is small -- ... (Read More)about 10-11 pounds and between 2-3 years old. Due to her shyness, we request a home with no small children. Her new home must also be a house with a secure yard for her potty breaks and playtime (no apartment, no condo or similar). She will do best if there are multiple dogs in the home. At least one, but if you have 2 or 3 others, even better for her so that it's similar to her current setting (foster home has multiple dogs), and won't be such a stark change from her original memories of many dogs around. She is a playful little pup -- loves toys, and cuddles with her foster fur buddies. She does come around for treats like most dogs but otherwise doesn't come when called. She has a fear of going in and out the door so treats may help her get past that fear. So, there is a lot of work to be done but she is very worth it. She just needs a dedicated person or family who wants to be her special angel(s) and knows that she's worth it. Please request an adoption application if you'd like to meet her. Adoption fee is $360 and she is spayed, vet checked, vaccinated, and microchipped. (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

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

    SAY HELLO TO OREO! Oreo is a delightful 2 year old Shih Tzu boy and a foster favorite. Weighing in at 16 pounds, he has a peculiar history of biting that we believe originated from his being teased and somewhat spoiled. Oreo takes a little time to develop trust with some people. With others he is 'game on' and ready to play! He plays fetch with toys endlessly and has a special playful bond with a few other dogs here. He can jump up very high, but if you let him know it's not acceptable he will respect you. He is good with strangers, but careful introduction is needed. Due to his tendency to take advantage of some people, we would ... (Read More)like Oreo to be in a home with a patient but firm owner, but one who is not too domineering or smothering. Oreo will be your most loyal friend and entertain you as well. He needs frequent leash walks to remind him who really holds the end of the leash! He is going to be the greatest companion when he meets his match! Oreo is good with kids, however due to his bite history with adults, it is not recommended and only an adult family or adults with older highschool teens will be considered. Oreo is mostly housetrained, however like all rescues, he will need gentle guidance and patience from his new family as he gets to know the routine of his new home. Oreo is a brindle and white longer coated breed that will require regular weekly brushing as well as a professional grooming every 4 to 8 weeks. Oreo's adoption fee is $450.00. This fee includes his Veterinarian visits, neuter, all vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, de-worming, microchip and professional groom. (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    SAY HELLO TO CUBBIE! Cubbie is just the most darling Lhasa mix boy. Weighing in at just 13 pounds, this 2 year old beautiful Lhasa mix boy has the heart of a puppy! He's sweet and playful and sometimes forgets to use his manners when he's happy to see you! He came to us through no fault of his own. Cubbie was surrendered as he was just too much energy for his senior owner. Cubbie is very eager to please however, so his ideal adopter would be one who is both 'dog savvy' and firm but kind. With an experienced adopter, Cubbie will be the most loyal and protective companion you could ever ask for! Cubbie does get a bit jealous if you give ... (Read More)your attention to other dogs. Extremely bright, he is learning to mind his manners around other dogs while walking on the leash. Cubbie is quite active and would love to jog, hike, nap and play with you! True to the Lhasa Apso personality, Cubbie will be a loyal and dedicated lifelong family member and friend that would lay down his own life for his owner. Cubbie would likely be the best boy in a family where he is the only dog to receive all of your attention. Not that he doesn't get on well with his foster mates, he just loves to be the center of your world. An adult only or adults with older teens would be best ~ no toddlers or little kids under the age of 12. Cubbie has been housetrained, however like all rescues, he will require gentle guidance and patience as he adjusts to his new family's home and routine. Cubbie is a long coated breed so his beautiful brindle coat will require weekly brushing and regular professional grooming every 6 to 8 weeks. Cubbie's adoption fee is 450.00. This fee includes his Veterinarian visits, neuter, all vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, de-worming, microchip and professional groom. (Less)

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)

They need to be in a home without young children or they will never adjust to their new surroundings. Any children in the home should be at least 14 years old and calm vs. rowdy. They'd also do great in a setting without children, maybe where someone works from home and the environment is very peaceful. With this, they become safe and have ... (Read More)actually started romping and playing with each other like regular puppies :) Zsa Zsa and Trixie must be adopted together. They've been BFF's through their whole rescue path, and cannot be separated. Both girls are housebroken as well as quiet. In their new home, they will be challenging at first, i.e. they may not come when you call, they may hide from you behind a bush in the backyard, and they don't walk on a leash yet. So, we need someone who is as fantastic as the Pathways fosters, someone who is calm, patient, understanding, and careful,, and patient and understanding, .... and loving and calm, and patient and understanding... and careful. Again, and again, and again. Trixie is between 7-8 months old. Zsa Zsa is between a year and a 18 months. They are non-shedding hypoallergenic dogs who will require regular grooming. Adoption fee for the pair is $780.00. They are both spayed, vet checked, vaccinated, and microchipped. If you are a dog whisperer :) or if you have the love, dedication, and commitment in you to give these two girls the drean home and dream family they deserve, please request an adoption application here on the page, or email rescue@rescueAngelsAZ.com We can set up a meet & greet appointment upon approved application.

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Ricky was rescued from the county shelter a few months ago. The poor kid had been neglected for quite some time--matted, thin, dirty, rotten teeth--and not a happy camper about any of it! He has since gotten a full workup at the vet--including neuter, dental, bloodwork, and all vaccinations. Now he starts the search for a forever family. Ricky does not require much. He's about 12 years old, hearing impaired, gentle and quiet. He sleeps in his crate at night, and when with the pack he gets along well with them. All he wants is a lap to sit on, maybe a sofa and a few dog beds. He would be perfect for a senior citizen, or even another senior ... (Read More)dog who just wants companionship.. (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.

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.
