Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Maggie came to us as a breeder surrender. She came in with her 8 week old baby boy. She is a super sweet little girl!!! Maggie will need to adjust to living in a home where she is loved instead of in a cage being used to make money. She has not had a good start to life. Thankfully the breeder she came from has down sized and Maggie was one of the lucky ones to get to leave. She is still young (3 year old ) so still very trainable. She does pick up toys to play and will go potty out doors when i take her out. She will need to go to a home that is willing to have time and patience with her. Maggie is current on her vaccinations, deworming, ... (Read More)heartgard, and flea prevention but has not been spayed yet. If she has not been spayed before she is adopted she will begoing home on a 30 day spay contract so please make sure your vet has an opening for her.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-21-00138Wally (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Wally. Oh yes, this guy is as cute as cute can be. He is a 3-year-old shih tzu/schnauzer mix, or so we think. Wally is totally adorable and can be the sweetest dog ever, but he has some quirks that have made him not an ideal candidate for a family with children. Wally was adopted from a shelter as a young pup. Although we don't know much about his puppyhood prior to being adopted, Wally demonstrates behaviors common among dogs who are separated from their litter too young (before 8 weeks). He can be fearful and unable to self soothe. He is also a resource guarder which is something that doesn't usually mix well with small children. The ... (Read More)family has worked with a behaviorist on these issues. It has been very helpful, and Wally has been doing great except with children. Perhaps it is because he tries to take advantage of them or because they aren't always able to read the cues he gives as warning before reacts. The family has decided with a heavy heart that Wally needs to live in a child-free environment. We agree. Wally has been learning his limits to his social anxieties. He likes to check people and things out on his own terms to decide whether he feels comfortable. Once he has done his appropriate amount of sniffing, he is officially a friend. If things are too much for him, he has learned to retreat and not mix with the crowd. His family often has guests over and Wally does fine with the adults, and the adults do well with him too. Wally does great with other dogs. He doesn't live with any currently, but he has visited several other dogs and spent much time romping and playing. We think a dog buddy in his forever home is fine and might help him gain more confidence if he watches another laid back dog do regular dog things. On walks Wally can either be friendly or ignore other dogs. Then there are times when he feels threatened and likes to bark. It's a little unpredictable. Wally has never been around cats, so we cannot predict his behavior with them. We know that not everyone is up for the challenge of Wally, but we do know that his perfect someone is out there. An ideal home for Wally will be calm and childless. He is an energetic, playful, and fun little guy. When he relaxes he is also snuggly and affectionate. He is very smart and knows basic commands. He has also learned what is allowed and what isn't in his home. These boundaries are important for Wally and will continue to be important in his new home. Wally is neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He is solidly housebroken and crate trained. He walks well on leash with an Easy Walk harness. If you would like to meet Wally please complete an adoption application on our website at www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting. This is the first step of the adoption process. Wally's adoption fee is $150. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-04-00005Asia (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Asia. 9 year old female Shih Tzu/possible Affenspincher mix. Up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped. Housetrained. Adoption fee $150.00 Due to the high volume of emails received, we recommend you visit our website and fill out an adoption application. This does not obligate you to adopt, it just helps us determine if a certain dog is a good fit for your household. Adoption applications can be found at www.waldosmuttleycrew.org. Thank you! Asia came to us in pretty rough shape. She's doing much better now! She is a very low maintenance doggie. She loves blankets and will snooze on anything soft she can find! She's 100% ... (Read More)housetrained. She does great with other dogs. She hasn't been around cats, but I don't see her having any problems at all with them. She has limited eyesight and hearing, so a home without small children will be best. She doesn't have any separation anxiety as far as if you have to leave her alone in the house. Now, when it's bedtime, she would prefer to lay in her dog bed on the floor next to your bed. If you can deal with an occasional doggie snore, we can't see that being a problem. Asia does enjoy her sleep, but will dance around a little bit after her frequent naps! If you are looking for a quiet and easy dog, Asia might be the one for you! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-04-00017Angel (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

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

    Angel - 13 year old female Shih Tzu. Approximately 15 lbs. Housetrained. Up to date on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. Adoption fee $100.00 Due to the high volume of emails received, we recommend you visit our website and fill out an adoption application. This does not obligate you to adopt, it just helps us determine if a certain dog is a good fit for your household. Adoption applications can be found at www.waldosmuttleycrew.org. Thank you! Angel is a really sweet older girl. Her previous owner was elderly and unable to continue to care for her. She spends most of her day sleeping. She wants nothing more than to follow you ... (Read More)around and sleep at your feet or in your lap. She is good with dogs, cats, birds and even chickens but would prefer to be an only fur child. She's never had to share her person, bed or food with other dogs or kids but is doing great on all accounts in her foster home. She is easily spooked possibly due to a bit of hearing loss so we recommend a home without children as a precaution. She is fully house trained and walks well on a leash. She loves car rides! Angel would do best in a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time as she has always been in a home where her owner is home most of the day. Angel does have a long history of environmental allergies and arthritis. Both of these are very easily managed with proper medication and diet. We also ran extensive bloodwork recently and the veterinarian said she is great health for her age! Also, due to her breed she does require regular grooming. This sweet girl just needs someone to love her through her golden years! (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.
