When his hair grows out, it will be long and silky. Dexter is wonderfully sweet, gentle, social, happy, fun, funny and affectionate. What a gem he is. Dexter gets along great with the other dogs in him foster home. He's super social and enjoys meeting people. Dexter is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm/lyme negative and wormed.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-27-00124Bindi & Rika (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Have Application. Currently on hold and not taking any additional applications. TWICE THE FUN!!! Application form here: More Pictures here: Adoption fee is $750 for the pair. We are looking for a home for Rika and Bindi together. While Bindi is fairly independent and could go to a home without Rika, Rika is very attached to Bindi and would not do well being separated from her. They are easy puppies - they play together, eat together, sleep together and are always close. By easy I mean that while they will ... (Read More)entertain each other, they still need plenty of exercise...because they are puppies and are high energy terrier mixes. They are currently getting 4 to 5 miles of walks/day plus play time with each other and other dogs in our large fenced yard. Once they are on a routine, they have 'down time' after walks and play sessions. Looking for a home within a 2.5 hour radius of Washington, DC but can consider other areas IF we have someone that can do a home visit. We will not send dogs anywhere that we cannot accomplish a home visit. (Pittsburgh, southeastern PA, Delaware, southern NJ, some parts of North Carolina, some parts of South Carolina, eastern WV, Denver, Colorado, LAX and San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, and Portland are all areas where we have volunteers that can do home visits. Application is above ^^^^. Please fill it out completely and provide name AND CONTACT INFORMATION of the vet that any current or previous pets have seen. Bindi and Rika are being fostered in the Washington, DC area. They are 9 months old and weigh in the 19 to 20 pound range. They will not get any bigger. Bindi is the more confident of the two pups and loves to play and she doesn't have much fear. She is a big dog in a small dogs body. Rika is a bit more hesitant to play with larger dogs and tends to be a bit standoffish if Bindi is playing with a dog other than her. Both puppies have longer bodies and short legs. They have longish, wirey hair - Rika's being a bit more wavy and softer than Bindi's. They are both house-broken and crate trained and are pretty good about only chewing on appropriate things. Both puppies are jumpers (they will jump up on you) but take correction well. They have only mastered a couple of basic commands. My fault...just don't have time to work more with them. If they are not competing for treats, they take them quite gently but if all of the dogs are around waiting for treats, they can be a bit rough. We feel it's best they go to a home with older children (8+) because of the jumping and potential nipping when taking treats. Neither puppy has been cat tested and based on how they chase rabbits and birds in our yard, I would think they would probably chase a cat. Vetting accomplished already: 2 combination vaccines, rabies vaccine, heart worm test, bordatella vaccine, spay. Heart worm negative and current on monthly preventatives. Vetting needed after adoption: monthly preventatives for heart worm and flea/tick (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament

    Zack, a rescue dog, loved his master who passed away in 2014 and was by her side as God took her home. He is such an intelligent dog and loves everyone who comes his way. He provided his master with continuous companionship, love, and laughter. Zack loves food, fun, people (old and young alike), and taking pictures. He also loves playing with his toys, walking, and carrying his own leash :-) NOTE: Due to the high volume of inquires, please be patient while we try to respond back to you. Also, we prefer a local placement within the Maryland, Virginia, or DC area.

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