Tank is a little roly-poly oh so happy boy! He loves to lay on his back in his dog bed.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    SAY HELLO TO SILVER & JOY! Silver and Joy are 2 gorgeous purebred Shih Tzu girls. They are 8 & 9 years young and came to our rescue through no fault of their own. Their elderly owner passed away and found themselves without a home when relatives did not want to care for them. Joy is brindle in color, petite and oh so adorable and weighs about 9 lbs. She's active and acts much younger than her age. Silver is the larger white and black one, about 16 lbs and is equally as sweet and loves to be close by. Silver 'talks' when she has to go out or has something else she needs. She also uses the doggie door. Silver has a few health issues that ... (Read More)remain stable as long as she takes her daily thyroid pill and stays on a special dry kibble/food for optimal urinary and kidney health. Silver came to us with her left eye already removed and it is unknown as to when or why, however it does not bother her or limit her in any way. Joy and Silver love to walk on a leash and are house trained. They are a BONDED pair and will ONLY be adopted out together. They are a longer coated breed and will require daily brushing and professional grooming every 6 to 8 weeks. The adoption fee for both together is 450.00 which includes their spays, vaccinations, rabies, microchip and professional groom. (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Shorty is a 4 year old Shih Tzu mix. He is hypoallergenic. He is good with other dogs both big and small. He was rescued from the County shelter. He was very scared, territorial, and protective. It was very sad that Shorty had such a hard time trusting people. He was a stray when brought to County so we are unsure of his rough past and what made him to untrustworthy. AZSDR wanted to try everything to help Shorty. With a lot of help from Lorenzo's Dog Training Team, Shorty received professional training. Shorty is getting a chance to be a very well behaved boy. Shorty is in Lorenzo Boarding/Training behavior modification program which will ... (Read More)teach him everything from basic manners to learning to accept new people more openly. We are hoping that by the time he graduates he will have a FOREVER FAMILY or FOSTER waiting for him. With Shortys adoption, Lorenzo's Dog Training Team has offered 3 free handling sessions. AZ Small Dog Rescue is so grateful that Shorty had this opportunity. He is now a very behaved boy!! He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, chipped, vet checked, licensed, comes with 30 days of free pet insurance, and comes with a free vet visit. His adoption fee is $160. To meet him, contact Lisa 602-918-9431 (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

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

    It's PAIR TIME again (3 Meet Gizzy (left) and Ferrari (right). Sadly, the living situation has changed for their broken-hearted owner who is having to give up two of their four dogs and wants these two to be very loved, safe, and together. Happy to have so many supporters who believe in keeping pairs together, we're asking for many shares on these to get these two young seniors adopted together. Gizzy & Ferrari are two darling Shih Tzu's available through Pathways Home Animal Rescue'. Gizzy is 10 years old and is a handsome boy giving you a wink with his one eye. Ferrari, who is 9 years old, is equally delightful. Both are very ... (Read More)easy going, impeccably mannered, housebroken, sweet as can be, loving, and carry a nice bounce about them as they follow their person around the house. Their foster gives them five stars :) You may request an adoption application here if you'd like to meet them, or meet them Sunday at Pet Club (93rd St & Shea Blvd in Scottsdale). Adoption event is 11am-2pm. Adoption fee for the pair is $260.00. Both are up to date on vaccines, vet checked, microchipped, and both have just had full dentals for snuggling fresh breath. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-18-00353One Eyed Buddy! (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Come meet Buddy today 11/12 at the Lake Pleasant Petsmart from 1030-3. Sweet, playful blind shih tzu. Buddy did have to have one of his eyes removed, and we believe he has extremely limited (if any) out of the other eye. However, we believe he was born blind and therefore gets around very well, once he knows the layout. He is SOOOO sweet!!!! Buddy is neutered, microchipped, current on shots, bloodwork good. Buddy does great with other dogs and all people, but he does not do well being alone. He must have either dog or human companionship at all time.

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.

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.
