Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Kojak is a fun loving puppy born on Christmas Day 2016. He has a playful bursts of energy but tends to fall more on the low energy side, lounging about the house. He is great with kids (my youngest will carry him around like a baby and he doesn't mind). He does also like his space sometimes and will let you know. He hardly barks, and can jump on couches and beds of average height. He is not fully potty trained, and does like to chew on things. He is purebred Shih Tsu, however we do not have papers. He needs to be neutered. He is primarily Black with brown/grey paws and eyebrows. He had breeder and 1st set of shots, will need additional shots ... (Read More)including rabies. He also seems to have slight separation anxiety, our vet advised this was due to the conditions of the breeders home. He would best be suited for someone who is home often or has other pets to keep him company. We would love for him to go to a forever home, while we wish it was with us, we are not able to give him the attention he needs as a puppy. Please contact me with any questions. (Less)

    Cuter than two little buttons! Trixie and Zsa Zsa are a Shih Tzu / Poodle mix, and just as precious and adorable as can be. PLEASE READ THEIR ENTIRE BIO These two fluffy bundles of love came from a situation where they had little to no human interaction so they are extremely shy and afraid at first. 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.

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)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

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

    A super sweet lil boy named Paul. He wants nothing more than to cuddle and be loved. Not much for walking on a leash, but we are working on that. Paul is housetrained and does well with other dogs if they are sweet too. He has lived with his friend Peter (the Chihuahua) for the past 4 years and they have done fine together. (he is 4 yrs old). These 2 dogs came in to our rescue as an owner surrender. The lady has been going through real trials and hardships, and she has come to the realization that it was no longer fair to the dogs. She moved back home, and the parents large dog was going after these 2 little ones. It indeed wanted to ... (Read More)hurt/kill them, so they were kept in the bathroom at night and gated off much of the home during the day. During all this, she was in a terrible car wreck, and so she has surrendered the dogs to us. THEY ARE AMAZING'|Both of them are the sweetest boys you will ever meet. Peters tail wags so quickly it's a blur in most photos, and no..he is not a yippy Chihuahua'| Paul'|.well, just the perfect personality and wins everyones heart. His foster has 2 dogs and he does fine with them. Not sure about cats, but he has a typical shih tzu attitude where nothing seems to bother him, so I would doubt if he would have problems with them. (just cannot promise). He has a very distinctive shih Tzu bottom jaw with super white teeth. Cute as a button! They are not bonded, so they do not need to go together. Paul weighs in around 12 lbs and will be current on Booster, Rabies shot, Mico-chipped and Neutered when he comes to your home. His adoption fee is set at $240.00 IF YOU CAN READ THIS, I AM STILL AVAILABLE. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A CHANCE AT ME, PLEASE FILL OUT AN APPLICATION BY GOING TO AZRAIN.ORG AND CLICKING ON THE ADOPT TAB, THEN THE DOG INTEREST FORM. THERE IS NO WAY TO BE CONSIDERED FOR ME WITHOUT COMPLETING ONE. IN THE EVENT you do not get the dog or cat that you are applying for, your application will stay on file for 3 months. If you find another pet with RAIN Rescue that you are interested in, (within the 3 month period), just call or email us and tell us the name of the pet and that you have previously filled out a INTEREST form, and which one you are currently interested in. We will pull your application for the specific dog. R.A.I.N RESCUE DOES NOT BRING ANY OF THEIR DOGS OR PUPPIES TO ANY EVENTS. IF YOU ARE CHOSEN TO SEE ME, YOU WILL GET A CALL. SOMETIMES IT TAKES A BIT TO FIND OUR FOREVER HOMES AS WE HAVE TO BE SPAY or NEUTERED 1ST, CURRENT ON SHOTS AND MICRO-CHIPPED'|.AND THE DOG DIRECTOR IS VERY PICKY! ITS ALL ABOUT 'US'! Please don't call to ask if this dog/puppy is still available. We remove them with in 24 hours of adoption, besides, you know you will find another one and your application will be good for 90 days for any of our dogs/puppies at R.A.I.N. Rescue! The 1st step to adopting any of our dogs is to fill out an application by going to our website. www.azrain.org. Click on forms tab, then DOG INTEREST FORM. We do not bring our small dogs to adoption events, because #1) they are normally scared to death and very nervous, not knowing what's going on with the many people coming up to the pens and hovering over them. Many shiver and shake with the unknown. #2) People adopt on impulse when they see a particularly 'cute' dog/puppy. When they are adopted on impulse, reality sets in with in the 1st month of adopting it'|Oh, this puppy ate the leg off my chair, I can't have that!.., or '|You said this dog was house trained and it pees all over'| and then in many cases they are returned to rescue. #3) When people have to fill out a form 1st, and read all the questions about the care of a dog/puppy, they see that there are many aspects to adopting a family member, that they may not of thought of. They also realize that it is a life time commitment. The application Is done prior to adopting, so the family understands the seriousness and responsibilities of ownership. We have applications available at 2840 W Chandler Blvd. (At Petsmart, in the Lowes shopping center). It is located at the 101 and chandler blvd. OR, you can go to our website and get one, then email back to us at info@azrain.org OR, hand deliver it to us on Saturdays at our Donation Table we have set up, right of the front door of Petsmart.

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

    Meet Thurston Howell--one of the Gilligan's Island crew. Thurston came to us along with 5 of hid 'relatives' from a hoarding situation. There were 40++ dogs living in one small trailer, most of them outside. He came to us skittish, afraid of people, matted to the skin, and covered in fleas and ticks. What a difference a month makes! His new home MUST have at least one playful, social dog in it. He is still very shy with new people so he needs a family who will be very patient with him and give him time to warm up to them. He is hand shy, because he was never touched or petted. He is VERY food motivated though, and will stand ... (Read More)right at the front of the line for treats! A yard is a must as well--he LOVES running around the yard-something he was never able to do living with 45 dogs in a tiny cramped trailer. Despite being infested with ticks, he tested negative for heartworm, tick fever, lyme disease, and anaplasmosis. He is also neutered and microchipped (Less)

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs

    Sweetheart of the year. Joseph is a very gentle, quiet, and mellow fellow. He's between 1-2 years old and about 20-22 pounds. He's a hypoallergenic non-shedder with a heart of gold (Shih Tzu / Poodle mix). Because Joseph came from a situation where there were many dogs, he is most comfortable with other dogs around. We require at least one other compatible dog in his new home, and a house with a fenced-in yard. Having little human interaction in his past, Joseph is very much on the shy side and is going to take time, dedication, patience, and lots of love. It could be weeks (and weeks) before he'll be happy to have someone ... (Read More)approach him in his new home. While Joseph is very friendly and mild and will in the long run be good with children, we request that any children in the home be at least 14 years old and understand how to be gentle and respectful of Joseph's shyness.

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Please meet Pepper. Pepper is one of 45 dogs that were taken from a horrific puppy mill and breeding situation. Americas Freedom Paws took 6 dogs in partner ship with E List Angels Rescue.

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant

He really is a sweet loving boy once he has your trust. Please contact me as we are ... (Read More)looking to find a home for him as soon as possible. Thank you! (Less)

    SAY HELLO TO MAX! Max is an 8 years young adorable Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix boy. Max came to our rescue after being dumped by his owners and was going to be euthanized at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control. He had some minor rectal lumps that his prior owner did not care to treat. Max was taken into our rescue as we believed he deserved a chance at life! Max was evaluated and surgery was scheduled. The rectal tumors were removed, biopsied. We are thrilled to report that our Veterinarian determined the tumors were non-cancerous!! Max has completely recovered and is so excited to find a forever family who will love him ... (Read More)unconditionally. Max will go to an adult only home ... no toddlers or kids. Max would thrive in a home as an only dog. He gets along with other dogs on a casual / visiting basis but is male selective and will guard both his food and be protective of his owner - a trait that is common in the Lhasa Apso breed. Max is both house and leash trained. He rides well in a car. He will make a great companion for an experienced adopter. Max is a longer coated breed that will require weekly brushing as well as regular professional grooming every six to eight weeks. Max's adoption fee is $ 275.00. This fee includes his Veterinarian check-ups, neuter, all vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, de-worming, microchip and professional grooming. (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. Shih-Tzus are descended from Lhasa Apsos bred with Pekingese. Paintings of dogs resembling Shih-Tzus exist dating back to the sixteenth century. Chinese did not allow Shih-Tzus out of the country until the 1930s.
