Rescue Me ID: 14-07-19-00409Lana (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    At just 4 pounds, tiny Lana has the personality of a much larger dog. While in a puppy mill, Lana had her first litter of puppies via c-section at just one year of age. 6 months later, after being saved from the puppy mill, she has been spayed and is now ready to start her life as a cherished family member instead of a breeding machine. Lana is assertive and becomes possessive of her people, so her ideal home would be one where she is the only dog. She is fine with cats. She loves attention and would be fine in a home with children over the age of 8.

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Chico is an adorable little guy with a not so adorable history. His family never took care of him and he was so matted that his skin was bleeding, his eyes were infected and he was terrified. It took 10 hours to get him cleaned up. He is very fearful and was never loved or cuddled. He will require a patient, loving person to show him life can be good but we know he will come around with the right person. We do not recommend Chico with children at this time. Please open your heart and show this guy some love!

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    NORTH North may look like the perfect little white and gray plush toy, but he's not. In fact, this 6-year-old, 12 pound Shih tzu, with the cutest of faces and cuddliest of bodies, is the perfect poster pooch for LOVE. 'Love' is the most used word in this sweet and loving little dog's vocabulary. He loves meeting people, both familiar and strange, and loves meeting dogs, whether old or new. He loves going for rides in the car and loves going to the store, where everyone who sees him and bends to pet him falls in love with him. He loves to be picked up and cuddled close in the tightest of hugs. And his way of returning your hug is to rest his ... (Read More)warm, curly head on your shoulder. Perfectly potty trained and well-behaved on walks, North may not have been around cats, but when he's outside and passes any, he doesn't react to them at all. His favorite activity? Being the world's most comfortable and cozy couch potato. And his favorite place to sleep? Curled up contentedly in his own doggy bed. Health-wise, however, he is not the hardiest of dogs. He suffered a broken jaw that, although healed, causes his tongue to hang out. He has a heart murmur, is blind in one eye and has dry eye in both. Yeast requires daily meds and weekly baths. And yet, in spite of it all, he is still sweet natured, snuggly, and the perfect poster pooch for LOVE. Neutered, up to date with all of his shots and heart worm negative, this dearest of dogs is eager to share his love with a loving forever family of his own. To be the lucky recipient of North's abundant love, simply fill out an application form. (Less)

She is working on housetraining in her foster home and will need a fenced yard in her adoptive home.

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-08-00619North (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    NORTH North may look like the perfect little white and gray plush toy, but he's not. In fact, this 6-year-old, 12 pound Shih tzu, with the cutest of faces and cuddliest of bodies, is the perfect poster pooch for LOVE. 'Love' is the most used word in this sweet and loving little dog's vocabulary. He loves meeting people, both familiar and strange, and loves meeting dogs, whether old or new. He loves going for rides in the car and loves going to the store, where everyone who sees him and bends to pet him falls in love with him. He loves to be picked up and cuddled close in the tightest of hugs. And his way of returning your hug is to rest ... (Read More)his warm, curly head on your shoulder. Perfectly potty trained and well-behaved on walks, North may not have been around cats, but when he's outside and passes any, he doesn't react to them at all. His favorite activity? Being the world's most comfortable and cozy couch potato. And his favorite place to sleep? Curled up contentedly in his own doggy bed. Health-wise, however, he is not the hardiest of dogs. He suffered a broken jaw that, although healed, causes his tongue to hang out. He has a heart murmur, is blind in one eye and has dry eye in both. Yeast requires daily meds and weekly baths. And yet, in spite of it all, he is still sweet natured, snuggly, and the perfect poster pooch for LOVE. Neutered, up to date with all of his shots and heart worm negative, this dearest of dogs is eager to share his love with a loving forever family of his own. To be the lucky recipient of North's abundant love, simply fill out an application form. (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Coco What a serious expression for such a sweet and sassy Shih tzu. With those tempting stuffy toys lying about, that pointed look can mean only one thing: 'Are you going to play with me or not?' Eight years young and always eager to strut her special stuff, Coco likes going outside for brief walks and makes her foster mom laugh with the crazy, little circle dances she does before doing her 'business.' Social butterfly that she is, coquettish Coco especially enjoys visiting her foster mom's neighbors and thrives on the attention she receives from everyone - particularly when treats are involved. Adorable and affectionate, she loves to ... (Read More)snuggle, and follows adoringly after her foster mom as she moves from room to room. Ever the well-mannered lady, she walks wonderfully on a leash, and is perfectly housebroken. Friendly Coco is good with children and politely greets other dogs by sniffing them briefly, then calmly walking away. This lovely, low maintenance love bug is spayed, up to date with all of her shots and heart worm negative, and is eager to start the next chapter in her life. Preferably in a home with someone there much of the time to snuggle her and even toss her a stuffy toy or two. If this sounds like YOU, simply fill out an application form. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-18-00390Graham (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    Graham This little cuddle bug is seldom seen without a toy. Whether it's under him, next to him or in his mouth. Happy could be this sweetest of sweet Shih tzus middle name, for despite being blind, 9-year-old Graham is, yes, happy, happy, happy! Described by his admiring foster mom as 'a total joy and one of the dearest dogs' she has ever fostered, Graham constantly proves it by always wagging his tail and smiling. He loves everyone and everything. And among the activities he loves are going for walks, taking rides in the car and most especially, dinner. He's even the best of good sports about getting eye drops twice a day for his dry eye ... (Read More)- because it means treats afterwards. As bright as he is bouncy, he learned the layout of his foster home within days and only occasionally misjudges his distance and bumps into a wall. He gets along well with his foster doggy brothers and would most likely get along with a cat if he met one. Fully housebroken, neutered, up to date with all of his shots and heart worm negative, Graham will bring his happy face and his wagging tail to the forever family eager for some added sweetness in their lives. P.S. He even snores sweetly! To add this happy bundle to your household, simply fill out an adoption application. (Less)

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