    Bella is a very gentle, lovable, sweet and wiggly, 18-month-old, female white and black tiny Shih Tzu looking for a loving guardian. Little Bella came into rescue as a matted mess. We don't think she had ever been groomed in her life. So, she needed to be shaved all the way down. She just LOVES attention!

Her adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued dogs of Famous Fido. She is up-to-date on vaccinations and will be spayed and micro-chipped upon adoption. To ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-28-00448Egypt (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER, NO EXCEPTIONS* Hi there! My name is Egypt and if you are looking for a living, breathing teddy bear to cuddle with all day, I am the perfect dog for you! I am an 8-year-old Shih Tzu mix, and I am seven pounds of pure affection! Because my hair was super matted when I was rescued, I had to be shaved down; when my new fluffy coat grows back it will be luxuriously black. And how cute are my big button eyes? One quick look into them and you can see just how much I love you. And best of all? I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I ... (Read More)was saved from Chicago Animal Care and Control; my foster mommy was so excited to help me get out of the loud, busy shelter, and I was just as excited to have a loving home again. I am most excited to have a human lap upon which to rest. I have a pretty laid-back personality and temperament, and am a calm little lady. I love to cuddle and snuggle; I would be happiest with a forever family that wants a lap dog more than anything. I have short bursts of energy and like to partake in tossing my toys around when I am feeling goofy, but when I am done with playtime nothing makes me happier than crawling back onto your lap so we can read a good book or watch a movie marathon together. I have pretty great house manners, too. I am potty and crate trained. I think I would do best with a person who is home more often than not; I don't mind when foster mommy goes out for a few hours and settle down in my crate for naptime, but I think anything more than 4-5 hours and I would get lonely. I just love being around my special person so much and would prefer to spend lots of time together! I would also prefer to be your one and only canine companion; I love being the center of attention. It would be nice to have a fenced yard for playtime and pottytime; I am fine walking on a leash, but I am ready to turn around and go home pretty fast so we can have more cuddle time. My friends at Fetching Tails Foundation like to encourage all adopters to sign up for training classes with their new pups, and I think that might be fun. Dogs of all ages can always learn new tricks and tips! It would be a great bonding experience for us, as well. It would be fun to see how much we can learn together. If you are looking for a sweet, cuddly, little friend to shower you with attention and affection, please get in touch with Fetching Tails Foundation as soon as possible and let them know Egypt is the little lady for you! XOXO, Egypt If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-08-00584Holly Golightly (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

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

    Holly is a very loving dog. She is missing some teeth due to age and is prone to ear infections. She wears a doggy diaper due to going in the house on occasion. We believe this is due to jealousy of small children in the home but may be due to age as well. She is purebred and has been overbred so she has an extra toe and an extra rib. The cutest little mutant I've ever seen, though.

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

    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. Shih-Tzus were popular with Chinese royalty. Chinese did not allow Shih-Tzus out of the country until the 1930s.
