Rescue Me ID: 14-07-17-00412cody (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Cody was rescued from a horrific puppy mill this past May. He is the last dog from the puppy mill to find a forever home, and he is still waiting. He is currently in foster care. Although Cody is blind, his foster mom says that doesn't slow him down once he gets to know his environment. Cody is about 10-12 years old. Cody is heartworm positive, but his vet says that he recently contracted heartworms and it will not affect his health at all at this point. We took Cody out of an outdoor kennel in terrible condition. Let us know if you want to see his 'before' photo. He was frightened and like all the other dogs from this home, he didn't ... (Read More)even know how to walk in grass or how to enjoy a human touch. Today, Cody is happy and loves to go outside with his foster mom to play and he loves to be held and cuddled. Please consider giving Cody a forever home for the rest of his life. If any dog deserves their own home with people to love him, little Cody does. Cody has not been neutered due to his age per our veterinarian. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-16-00474Shanghai (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

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

     Shanghai: 1 1/2 year old brussels griffon/shih tzu mix 10 lbs good with most dogs/adults - no children under 14 years. Adoption fee $250 'This spunky little boy has a huge personality in a little 10lb body! Shanghai is confident, fearless and feisty; he knows he's adorable and doesn't hesitate to use his cherubic appearance to get what he wants. Like many terriers, he has boundless enthusiasm and endless charm but he can be outspoken and stubborn as well. He's a busy chap who likes to plenty of stimulation and activity; but he also enjoys some snuggle time and cuddling with his special person. Because he likes to have his ... (Read More)own way, Shanghai will need a home with consistent boundaries or he will quickly make himself the 'king of the castle'. Because of his high level of assertiveness, he would not do well in a home with children under 14 years as they wouldn't be able to engender the respect Shanghai would need in order to behave appropriately. He's quite the character and his antics are the source of constant amusement to us; he loves having a fringe on his tail so that he can chase it. We think he's hoping it's a squirrel that keeps showing up! Although he gets along with other dogs, he can be bossy and opinionated so would not do well with another dominant canine. Shanghai's adoption fee is $250; he's neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations.' (Less)

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