Rescue Me ID: 16-01-27-00023ButterCup (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected, Aggressive 

    Butter Cup is very friendly to people and other dogs. Buttercup was in a bad situation and was taken in by my mother with hopes that she could be his forever home. Unfortunately she does not have the time, or space to give Buttercup the proper training and attention he needs. I believe with training and a consistent owner buttercup will do fine.Buttercup still marks around the house, and I believe due to previous trauma he will growl if someone tries to pick him up or move him when he is under a bed or couch.

Rescue Me ID: 15-09-14-00164Pepper (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    Hi! I'm Pepper (originally named Mocha). I am a five year old Shih Tzu who needs a new home. I prefer to be in a home without kids where I can be the center of attention as I need time to build trust with my owners. A fenced in yard would be great as would a window or door I can look out and see the world! My new family adopted me in July the same day I was surrendered from my original owners. I have been well cared for (shots up to date, comfortable with grooming) and am in good health. I weigh in at just under 15 lbs and have a sturdy build - I'm a strong girl. I'm 5 1/2 years old and a beautiful blonde/peppery grey (hence my name) ... (Read More)color. Now, let's get back to the issue of trust --- something happened to me before I came to my new owners that made me fairly fearful at unpredictable times ... I get startled when woken up, I'm petrified of thunder, I am afraid of the dark (but will go out with just a little resistence) and sometimes it's hard to say what triggers me but I snap! I am also fairly possessive of my toys (I do play with them and my owners but sometimes I want to be left alone), my bed, and my food --- my mom says I resource guard. Since it's important that I'm honest, I should tell you that I nipped my owners in the beginning but now that I've been with them for some time I trust them most of the time, but can still be occasionally grumpy for no obvious reason. With another dog (a 14 year old) and children (17 and 12) it's hard for them to focus fully on me and be patient which is what I need to get over my fears. That's why they are looking for a new home for me - even though it makes them sad they want me to feel safe and loved! If you think you can work with me and let me be your world then please email my mama --- she may ask you a lot of questions but only because she wants to make sure I end up in a great new home!

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.
