Rescue Me ID: 17-10-15-00007Star (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Star here found himself at the County Shelter and now that he is with us, he has a huge fan club. Star is a staff and volunteer favorite - he just wants to bond. He wants nothing in life but to be next to / in the lap of his person/persons and relax together, in a calm and quiet environment. Star does okay with other dogs but has been seen mounting other dogs out of dominance. On that same note, it is not all dogs that he acts this way towards. Star might be okay with other dogs, but a meet and greet is a must. No kids for Star, he's just an older gentleman who has some pep left in his step. Star is a fav!

Rescue Me ID: 17-10-07-00465Beau (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

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

    Beau is a handsome and healthy, four-year-old, 18-pound, male, black and white Shih Tzu looking for a loving guardian. Beau enjoys the company of other dogs; I'm not sure if he's ever met a cat. He's a nice dog for the right person, but he is more for the experienced dog-lover who has no children in their home. Sadly, Beau was relinquished to Chicago Animal Care and Control for snapping at family members who were visiting their grandma. He was well-behaved when the groomer trimmed the hair away from his eyes, so he is accustomed to being handled though he has bitten. Beau needs someone who understands a 'bitter' and can work with me and his ... (Read More)quirk. Beau is healthy, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. He will be neutered upon adoption. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-10-02-00573Ralph (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    Ralphie is an adorable and sweet seven-year-old, male wire-haired Schnauzer-mix looking for a loving guardian. Ralphie is a love who rolls over for belly rubs and snuggles. He doesn't appear to have much training and jumps up happily on the people who admire him. Ralphie also enjoys the company of other dogs. This lovable little guy was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control. He has ear infections and allergies but should recover well with proper nutrition and medication. He will be neutered and fully-vetted upon adoption.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-19-00234Andrew (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Andrew is a 6 pound male Teddy Bear (Bichon Frise/Shih Tzu) born 01/06/17. He came to us because he had a heart murmur which was later diagnosed as Tetralogy of Fallot. He takes a 1/4 of a Atenolol pill twice a day which cost less than $0.05 a dose and will need to see a cardiologist every 6 months (approx $500.00) to ensure the meds are correct. There is no way to determine what Andrew's live expectancy will be as we have been told by the cardiologist, 'it all depends on how well he responds to the medication.' She also stated that she has been treating another dog with the same diagnosis for over 6 years. Andrew needs to be in a home with ... (Read More)very little activity as his activity needs to be limited, although he doesn't want it to be. Therefore, a home with no small children or young dogs is best for Andrew. He is UTD on all his shots including rabies, bordetella, microchip and flea/heartworm preventative. Andrew can never undergo surgery; therefore, can't be neutered. If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a home, please complete and return the attached application for consideration. Since we are 100% foster based rescue, only approved applications will be contacted to set up a meet and greet with the fur baby. We do not allow shipping and do not transport so you must be able to drive to Edwardsville/O'Fallon, Illinois area for meet and greet/adoption. Adoption fee will be discussed only after we determine the best home for Andrew. Thanks (Less)

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. Chinese did not allow Shih-Tzus out of the country until the 1930s.
