Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament

    Baby is a sweet 7 year old girl that came to TRAIN after her 'dad' died and nobody in the family could keep her. She loves everyone she meets, doesn't mind cats or other dogs. She's a bit overweight so she'll need to be on a diet to get down to her ideal weight. She does have dry eyes and will need to be on eye drops for the rest of her life, but she is very good about letting you put them in. She just a sits there and looks pretty while you do it. If you have room for this little girl in your home, contact us soon, she won't be around for long.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-24-00504Esme (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    We love this little girl! She is from the Border shelter and arrived at TD with wounds on either side of her hips like she was bitten by a bigger dog. She was dirty and it appears she had never had a bath. A little lady shouldn't have to look like this. She was beaten down and scared. Her wounds have been treated and she is healing up nicely. Esme is about 2-3 yrs old and weighs about 12 pounds. She gets along with all the dogs in her pack but she will not allow anyone to pick on her. She can be a little tom boy when she has to. She loves to cuddle and she has asked us to find her a home where she can sit on someones lap and watch TV and go ... (Read More)for car rides.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-14-00301Vinny (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Vinny is a five year old male black and white Shih Tzu. He weighs 18 pounds. He should only go to experienced dog owners and all people in the home need to be over 18 years old. He walks well on leash and loves to play fetch. He is especially fond of his squeaky toys. He loves going for car rides and going for walks and also does good with his foster mommy's current small dog. Vinny is also making progress with his potty training with being let out regularly.

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-18-00666Rufus (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

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

    Rufus is a 10 year old shihtzu, puppy mill survivor who needs a loving home willing to work with his emotional scars. He was released from the puppy mill at age 5. He went to live with a family who now had to rehome him. Rufus is emotionally guarded and carries some separation anxiety. He will do well in a home where he has someone around more of the time rather than not. If he is very scared and stressed he will howl a couple times (or more in the day). We are working on desensitizing him on this but may not ever improve. This does dissipate as he acclimates in his environment but will likely never go completely away and his adopter ... (Read More)needs to be aware and accepting of this behavior. So he must go to a home rather than an apartment or townhome. He wants to be near his human and prefers to lay by your feet but isn't looking to be a Velcro dog. He does not want much physical handling and will elicit a low growl if he does not want a pet. Rufus seems to prefer men and is quite comfortable with them. Rufus will do well with a patient adopter who will let Rufus come to them on his own terms and be okay with a dog that is likely always somewhat aloof. He is house trained, crate trained, microchipped and neutered. He is current on his vaccinations. He deserves to spend his golden years with love and appreciation. If you think you can offer than to Rufus and be his hero, then please by all means contact us. (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.
