Rescue Me ID: 17-02-23-00367Ricky (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    Ricky is our little wonder dog. He has had 3 operations on his left ear with the last one removing his ear canal and eardrum. While he can't hear out of his left ear, he does hear very well out of his right so no problem when coming for dinner. In his first home a cat scratched his eye and the people didn't get him medical care so there is scaring so his left eye has very limited vision but again his right one is good so he can see and hear very well. He lost his hearing in his left ear due to his second home not getting him to the vet to remove a polyp that became infected and put a hole in his eardrum. Hence why we removed it all to clear ... (Read More)up the infection and get Ricky out of pain. He is an adorable little fellow that has been through so much that we truly want the perfect home for him. We don't want him to go to a home with children under the age of 10 as he has not been around young children. He loves his walks and does play with toys. He told us he would love to have someone to cuddle with but who also would take walks with him to new places. He likes to explore and doesn't hesitate when you do take him on a walk. He is housetrained and crate-trained but he doesn't go in the crate at all. He is altered and micro-chipped and would make the perfect companion for a single person or couple no matter the age as long as you are somewhat active. He will never be a runner but a walker. IF you have been looking for that perfect little companion to share your life with please check out Ricky. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-03-00246Toby (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    This adorable boy is looking for a patient forever home that will love and adore him for the rest of his life. We believe Toby is 6-7 years old. He has experienced some type of abuse in his life - but we're unsure of what. He is eager to please and would love to be a lap dog. We are told that he had food guarding in his past - but we have not experienced that at the rescue. He can be nervous...and at times nippy but we have not experienced that in the rescue foster home environment. At the rescue he has wanted to be a lap dog that is everywhere you are, he walks well on a leash, plays well with others (furry), is housebroken, crate trained ... (Read More)(but we have not really crated him because he is not naughty in the house). He is the perfect companion for a person(s) with no children. He travels well in the car. If you are interested in adopting him please visit our website for an application and instructions. Toby is vaccinated, wormed, microchipped, groomed, heartworm negative and on 3 months of flea/tick prevention, as well as monthly heartworm preventative. If you see him listed on the site - he is available for adoption. (Less)

    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's a Shit-Tzu and Cocker Spaniel mix. He's about 12 years old and is a sweet, loyal and happy dog. He can be cautious with people until he gets to know them, but warms up to those he feels are animal lovers. He is not good with other dogs and has not been around children in quite a few years.

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.
