Rescue Me ID: 17-04-27-00597Beau (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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. Beau is healthy, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. He will be ... (Read More)neutered upon adoption. To meet and possibly adopt Beau, please fill in the online adoption application at http://famousfidorescue.com/rescueforms/machform/view.php?id=26727 and follow up by contacting Gloria at fido@famousfidorescue.com or 773-907-0305. Beau is at the Famous Fido Rescue, 3124 W. Irving Park Road at Troy Street in Chicago, Illinois 60618. Please call or e-mail for an appointment to meet him and all the other wonderful cats and dogs. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido's. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-26-00530Ruby (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

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

    Ruby is a gentle, sweet and loving, 10-pound, two-year-old, female red Shih Tzu or looking for a loving guardian. Little Ruby loves to be held and is devoted to her person. She would love to live with someone who is a homebody and enjoys going for frequent walks. Ruby is very docile and fine with visiting children, but she is shy and would prefer not to live with them. She'd probably be best in a home with adults for her to love. She doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body. Sadly, Ruby was relinquished to a shelter for urinating on an expensive rug. She appears to be housebroken but needs to go out on a frequent and regular schedule. ... (Read More) Ruby is healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-06-00360Spice (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    This is momma to our spices Ginger, Anise, Cayenne, Barley, and Basil. She is very sweet though she was very neglected. We were able to get her groomed and spayed and up to a healthy weight. She unfortunately did bite a child so we can not let her go to a home with kids under 12 years of age. She would do best with an elderly couple. Her age is unknown. We had to have several teeth pulled because they were in such bad shape. The vet thinks she is at least 5 but not older than 7.

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