Rescue Me ID: 16-05-21-00600Piper (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Meet Piper. This scruffy baby looks a bit ragged in her pic, but we'll just chalk it up to a bad hair day. Once she heals from her spay surgery we'll get her a proper grooming. Piper is a 6-month-old schnauzer/poodle/shih tzu mix. She is a very sweet girl who seems to love everyone. She's a puppy so she does like to play and be silly, but she is also happy to be a cuddle bug. Piper has been raised around children and does great with them. We were told she might not be good with other animals. However, she is in foster care with dogs and cats and doing just fine with them too. Piper would love a fun, active household who will work with her ... (Read More)on learning all sorts of stuff. She came to us because her owners didn't have time for her. This means she hasn't had much in terms of training and basic commands. Piper is spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped. She has been crated in the past, but doesn't love it. She is also not yet 100% housebroken. With a consistent schedule and predictable potty times, Piper will get there just like the millions of other dogs across the globe who started out not housebroken but now are. If you would like to offer Piper a forever home, please go to the website below and fill out an adoption application. After this step is completed, individual meet and greets will be arranged. Piper's adoption fee is $200. (Less)

 Adoption Fee: $200 Animal Location:

Rescue Me ID: 16-03-06-00322Baxter (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Baxter. 7 year old male shih tzu mix. 17 lbs. Up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. Working on house training. Adoption fee $150.00 Baxter has had a rough go of it. When we rescued him we discovered that he is heartworm positive. He is only level 1 so at least that is good. He is currently undergoing treatment. He also had an ulcer on his eye that was not healing and had to have his left eye removed. He is finally starting to feel better though and is getting some pep in his step again! If you are looking for a velcro doggie, then Baxter might be the one for you! He will be your shadow and follow you where ever ... (Read More)you go! He is pretty low energy and enjoys snuggling up against you. He does great on car rides. He can be a little stubborn and it might be best if he is any only 'furchild.' A home without small children would probably be best also. He rarely barks and is a very quiet boy. He is crate trained. If you are interested in adopting Baxter, he is available now even though he is healing from some medical issues. Waldo's Muttley Crew will continue to pay for his heartworm treatment and during the healing of his eye removal surgery. (Less)

 Adoption Fee: $150 Animal Location:

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.
