    Kobe is looking for a new home! His former family thought he had cataracts and took him to animal control. He doesn't have cataracts, he is a 4 year old dog. He has chronic dry eye that went uncared for by his original family. He will require daily drops to combat this. He gets a daily drop of cyclosporine in each each eye. The drops come from the compounding pharmacy and will last him 2 months or more per bottle. The average cost will be about 42.00 a bottle or about 21.00 a month. His vision is perfect and so is his loving heart. Kobe is a super good and affectionate boy. He is playful with other dogs and people. He gets along with ... (Read More)everyone including the cat! He has house manners, loves to ride in the car and just loves being near his human. Tug of war or wrestling with his BBF Shihtzu friend, Ruthie, makes him happy. Kobe has been neutered, microchipped, had a dental and all his shots. He is a delightful boy who deserves a home that will give him the eye care he requires and the love he deserves. If you are willing to care for his eyes and give him a loving home, please contact us if you would like to know more about him. (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.
