Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

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

    I am trying to help a friend find a new home for her dog, Bubba. Bubba has an older brother who he get's into vicious fights with and it stresses everyone out in the family. My friend has had them both since they were puppies and has done everything possible to keep them apart & peaceful but nothing has worked. With a broken heart she chose to find a new home for Bubba because he is the youngest of the two & has a better chance of being adopted. Bubba is an adorable 10 year old Shitzu, who does great with kids, he may get along with other dogs (his brother starts all the fights & he only defends himself), and he has never been around cats. ... (Read More)He should go to a home where he will be an only dog & will live out the rest of his days spoiled and loved. He is always on the defensive with is brother and he needs a home where he will feel safe and can relax. There will be a rehoming fee of $100 to make sure he goes to a safe & loving home. Anyone who is looking for a mellow, sweet, older gentleman. He is up to date on his vaccinations & neutered. I know for a fact my friend has gone through great measures and expense to try to get her two babies to stop fighting but for Bubba's safety & for her sanity she has no other choice. (Less)

    Meet Abbott, found running the streets with another dog, Costello....Both seem to have been abused by being hit. A gentle approach is what they require. Gently petting and loving is their favorite past-time, and although they were found together, they are not attached. They were at the beginning however they preferred in the foster home to be distant. Now they are in different foster homes and doing fine. Both are doggy door trained, and love going for walks. Abbott will be adopted with all his immunization shots current, Rabies shot current, Micro-chipped, and neutered...Just needing a place to call home! He weighs in around 16 lbs. ... (Read More)solid. Has some shih tzu and terrier in him. A very handsome boy, who gets a lot of compliments on his nice looks. His adoption fee is set at $200.00 Thanks for wanting to Rescue your next family member!! Do you see me? If so, my forever home has NOT been chosen yet. The only way to have a chance at me is to get your application in at www.azrain.org 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! THANKS FOR WANTING TO RESCUE YOUR NEXT FAMILY MEMBER!! 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. Your application stays on file with us for 90 days, in the event you are not chosen to adopt the dog you filled out the application for. Please don't email us, if you haven't filled out an application 1st. 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.

Roger requires professional grooming about every four months to prevent matting of his coat. He is ready for his forever home and has so much love to give. He will be your best friend and follow you everywhere. ( See his YouTube video button below his photo) (Less)

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adult Men Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Fluffy is a pure bread Shih Tzu. He was left in my elder parents care. They can no longer care for him and I cannot take him because I already have two dogs and he is very tempermental. He needs a lot of love, care and attention from someone who knows how to work with him. I don't want give him to the pound for fear that he would be euthanized. He is free to a good home.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-13-00378Rocky (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis, Aggressive 

    Rocky is protective, maybe aggressive, when other dogs come towards him to play or to scare him. Maybe he does this as protection for me because I haven't seen him do this in a large setting with other dogs. He's great with people and kids and once he gets to know other dogs in the home, he's fine. He and my older female shih tzu sometimes growl at each other to get my attention. Rocky does not have papers to show he is a purebred but was gotten as a purebred shih tzu. He has the front legs bowed health issue and I give him DASUQUIN WITH MSM for a joint supplement. He is house broken and uses a doggy door. He could use some training to walk ... (Read More)better on a leash. He loves, absolutely loves, to run off leash in the forest. He's a larger shih tzu and weighs about 17 lbs. I'm not totally sure about his age because I got him for my elderly mother several years ago as a 4 month old puppy. (Less)

    Lilah is in foster care. If you are interested in meeting her, please contact us! $50 adoption donation Sweet Lilah Bernstein.....this 10+ year old lady was turned in to the shelter with her 'brother'--a much younger shih tzu. He was quickly adopted, but Lilah has some medical issues which have prevented her from finding her forever home. Lilah has no teeth--that does not stop her from eating dry kibble! In fact, she actually prefers it to the canned food. She uses her tongue like a spoon. Lilah also has dry eye and requires drops 2x daily. She is susceptible to ear infections, so her ears MUST be cleaned out daily. We have found ...

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    $150 adoption donation Hello everyone! My name is Mabel Finkelstein, but my friends call me Aunt Mabel. I am a 9 yr old tiny shih tzu rescued from the county shelter. I was probably used for breeding, and when I got an eye infection, my family did not treat it, and dumped me at the pound. Booo.... Well, good for me because I am now spayed, but I did have to have my eye removed. It does not slow me down one iota, and I certainly do not act my age! Know what my favorite things in the whole wide world are? TOYS!!!! I LOVE TOYS!!!!!! I like to run around the house, gather them all up and put them on my bed, just so I don't ... (Read More)run out. I do have very thin hair on my back and sides. The vet says it's truncal alopecia--genetic. So, that means in addition to buying me gobs of toys, I will need a wardrobe. I have to keep my skin covered so it doesn't burn, plus when the weather cools down, I get chilly. I have been in foster care for a year and 1/2, my foster mom loves me to pieces and thinks I am the bees knees. Not sure what that means cuz I didn't know bees had knees...whatever...she says I will only go to the very best home, someone who will adore me like she has. She says I am one of her favorite fosters of all time, so that means I am pretty cool. If you think I would be a good addition to your family, and you promise to play toys with me every day, then send us an email xoxo Aunt Mabel Adoption fees include: Spay/neuter Current vaccinations including Da2Ppv, Rabies, and Bordatella 4dx snap test--Heartworm, tick fever (erlichia), lyme disease, and anaplasmosis Microchip Dental cleaning (if needed) Current on Heartguard + and Frontline + (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.
