Rescue Me ID: 18-01-17-00045Chloe (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    Chloe is a great Shih-Tzu. Unfortunately she suffers from food allergies and a skin condition and is possibly partially blind. Her owner can't afford to keep up with the prescriptions and special foods for her so she loses her hair and develops skin rashes. She is also behind on vaccinations. Her owner loves her to death and Chloe has always been well loved. Chloe loves to lounge around the house and occasionally play. She just needs a home that can afford the time and money to put into making Chloe's life last longer and happier. Please help this family.

Rescue Me ID: 18-01-15-00003Belfi (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Belfi arrived in the United States in early January from Iran. He found himself in quite a pickle when dogs were outlawed. Fearing hefty punishments and fines, these pups are being turned out to suffer at the hands of others before meeting their demise. Belfi was a lucky one. He found his way to a rescuer who was able to get him a one way ticket to the United States. This boy is a joy. He is about 18 months old and full of life. He gets along well with other....humans and furkids. We are unsure of his experience with felines. We do know that he travels well and he's crate trained....and he loves to play tug-o-war! Life is just beginning ... (Read More)for this boy...and he wants to share it with you. If you are interested in adopting him visit our website to find our adoption application. Belfi is fully vetted to include vaccinations, microchip, neuter, worming, and he's heartworm negative. Upon adoption we will also give you the passport he arrived in the United States with. You don't want to miss this boy! Belfi has an adoption fee of $350. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-01-07-00178Lindy Love (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

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

    Lindy Love was born into an Amish puppy mill...where she learned that she had little value and humans are scary. Once released, and adopted out the mill, Lindy found herself in a home where she was needed to learn to be a pup...but had no idea how to. So she was turned into the shelter. She was so terrified there that the shelter called rescue and asked for her to be picked up. Lindy's been here awhile and become a shelter favorite. There have been lots of firsts for her...and lots of learning about life and how to just be loved as a furkid. She's doing GREAT! We believe she's ready to take the next step into a home environment with her very ... (Read More)own family. Our experience with Lindy Love tells us that she would do best in a home with adults, maybe teenage children. Because loud noises sometimes startle her - a quiet home is preferred. She is tolerant of other pups as she tends to ignore them and not engage in play with them. However, give her a stuffie and she'll show you what play is all about! She can be a little fearful of men but it appears in shyness. Lindy will need someone with patience and a passion to introduce to her to new life situations and experiences. We're confident she'll blossom even more in home setting. Lindy still gets a little panicky with grooming (as you can see with her coat - mainly the face). She did have an ulcer on her eye but with proper medical care it has healed well. Lindy Love is vaccinated, heartworm negative, spayed, microchipped and on preventatives. (Less)

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.
