Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Tiger is a little ball of joy! She walks well on a leash, is trained for a doggy door, and she minds well. The Vet thinks she is about 9 months old, spayed and UTD on all shots. She does not seem to shed either, and has a big fluffy tail and big brown eyes. I also have two cats and they get along with her. I am under a lot of stress and cannot cope with taking care of a puppy at this time. I might have one other photo of her.

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.

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Cory is a 10.5yr old Shihtzu looking for his forever home. He is hypoallergenic/non shedding and weighs in full grown around 8lbs. Cory has been with us for awhile. His momma became very ill and was unable to care for him. Cory was very sad when he first came to us and took some time to adjust to loosing his mom. Cory is a very sweet, loving, cuddly boy. He is good with other dogs that are mellow and not in his face. He is not aggressive with other dogs, but doesn't enjoy being around hyper dogs that get in his face. We suggest a home with kids over 16 or no kids, as like some Shihtzu's he can be a littly bossy :P He prefers women over men, ... (Read More)but does warm up to men over time. He loves lounging around, being held and cuddled, likes water and a shallow doggy pool. He's very mellow and low key, he would do best in a quiet home with someone who is home a lot that can give him lots of love, lap time, and cuddle time. He is housebroken, but needs a reminder in the beginning as he has been in a shelter environment for awhile. Cory is 10.5yrs old, but he is in great health and has many years left of love to give! Cory is neutered, up to date on vaccines, chipped, vet checked, comes with 30 days of free pet insurance, and comes with a free vet visit. His adoption fee is $200.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-01-00504Dionne (female)

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.
