Shih Tzu    Age: Puppy

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

    Ragamuffin fondly known as Muffin is a 10 month old beautiful Brown Sable male Shih Tzu who weighs 7 1/2 pounds. This darling little boy is in our rescue because his owner could no longer care for him. When Muffin came into our rescue it was obvious that he had not been socialized so he was afraid and timid. Now after being in our rescue for several weeks he has become more trusting and has bonded with his foster mom. Now Muffin wants to be picked up and loved and is a very sweet young little boy who is looking for his new loving forever home. He gets along with his foster mom's dogs and loves to play with them and his toys and chews. ... (Read More)Since Muffin gets along with other dogs he may be good in a home with another small dog. Muffin will do well with an active retired person or couple who have lots of time to train and love this darling little boy. He should be supervised around children as there were no children in his former home. Muffin uses potty pad and also has learned how to use a doggy door at his foster home that goes out into a large secure decking area but of course all rescue dogs need training in their new loving forever homes. Please be prepared for Muffin to have regular grooming as this breed of dog need to be groomed as least every 4-6 weeks. All of PJ's Small Dog Rescue puppies and dogs are indoor dogs with outside potty and play privileges. Please click on our name PJ's Small Dog Rescue at he bottom of Muffin's page for further information about our rescue, policies and fees. PLEASE NOTE we are NOT a SHELTER, we are a RESCUE so we don't have a facility for you to come and visit our rescue dogs and puppies as all the dogs in our care are in foster homes. After your adoption questionnaire is approved, you will be invited to come and meet the rescue dog or puppy you are interested in for possible adoption. If you are interested in Ragamuffin you must EMAIL or call us for required adoption questionnaire and one will be emailed back to you (email link for our rescue is at the bottom of Muffin's page). If you are a renter then we will need a letter from your landlord giving you permission to have a dog. If you already have a small dog then it must state you can have more than one dog. Also, it is our policy to not place our tiny rescue dogs and puppies into homes with large breed dogs. All of our adoptions are in person so if you are unable to come to Isleton, California for an adoption we will not be able to assist you in adopting one of our rescue dogs. Thank you for your interest in adopting one of PJ's Small Dog Rescue dogs or puppies. (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Trinket was impounded as a stray at a high kill shelter and no one ever came for her. We saved her and now she is safe.

She is receiving training and is showing much improvement. She is about 1 year old, 16 pounds and is friendly with people. She will sit on your lap for pets and she likes to cuddle. She is good with most dogs she knows and needs proper introduction and supervision to new dogs. She does best with calm dogs who are not dominant or a ...

She walks nicely on a leash and enjoys riding in the car. We will not adopt her in a home with young children. We will provide a 2 hour in-home training session with our professional trainer to whomever adopts her. (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Pictures coming soon - Curry! What a furry Curry he is! Fun, love, and silliness all in one package is what his new family will get. Curry is maybe around three years old and just over 15 pounds. He loves to be loved! Curry doesn't really know 'yet' how to walk great on a leash but it's clear that he knows what a leash is, and... he would just as soon be carried or ride in a doggie stroller. He LOVES to go on car rides and will jump right in - he prefers shotgun though we've had a discussion with him about car safety. This little guy is great with other dogs though large dogs are a bit overwhelming for him. He would be just as ... (Read More)happy in a home with dogs as without as he is more focused on having a lap to sleep on and slathering his people with love. He is fine with cats too. If you have been looking for joy and silliness wrapped up in a furry little dog, then Curry is the boy for you. Please read on to find out how to start the application process and meet this little guy. All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live. Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Shih Tzu in California
    Shih Tzu Dogs can make good pets in California 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.
