Rescue Me ID: 14-11-09-00164Lorenzo (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Approx. DOB: 12/12/12, Approx. Weight: 10 Lbs Adoption Fee: $275 includes a 2 week trial to ensure everyone's happiness! Lorenzo came to Furry Kids' Refuge as an owner surrender. A Furry Kids' volunteer spotted him on Craigslist and in the photos he was on a chain outdoors! Who chains an adorable little guy like this? His hair was quite a mess and had to be shaved down to start all over. We believe he is a purebred Shih Tzu but are not completely sure. Lorenzo is in a foster home with many other dogs. Initially he was a little overwhelmed, but very curious. Now he loves his foster buddies and has really started to have some fun ... (Read More)playing in the back yard. He LOVES tennis balls and believe it or not he can fit one in his little mouth! Lorenzo is a slow warm up to humans but once he knows you just want to be his friend he is just a sweet little guy. This little guy will need a patient family to gain his trust and continue to build his confidence. Lorenzo has a sweet personality and he accepts love and attention, he is just unsure at first. One of the Furry Kids' volunteers who met him initially he growled at her, but then at a second meeting a week later he acted as if she was his best friend. We don't feel that he was physically abused but the neglect and lack of socialization has caused him to be so distrustful. Lorenzo is crate trained but he is NOT housebroken, he will also need patience and understanding while he masters this skill. He has been doing really well learning to potty outside at his foster home, very smart little guy! We do not recommend a family with children for this little guy. Due to his neglect it may take some time before he could handle the excitement and activity of children running about. He is also very active in the yard so a fence is definitely preferred to keep him safe. Lorenzo is a great little dog and so deserving of a second chance and the love of a family, please give him a chance! Lorenzo has been neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting Lorenzo, please complete the adoption application located at www.furrykidsrefuge.org/adoptadog and a dedicated volunteer will get back to you as soon as possible.

If she barks....he barks. They seem to work as a team! They do seem to ... (Read More)be happy together as a pair but have also done very well being in separate homes. Juju has been doing great in her new foster home. She doesn't seem to play with her foster buddies but does enjoy playing with her humans. Her foster family said they can tell she is interested in plating with the other dogs, but she doesn't know how to. Juju is mostly housetrained, and we say mostly because she will have an occasional accident. Juju is also crate trained! Juju has been spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative and microchipped.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Approx DOB: 1/2008, Approx Weight: 16 lbs. $200 adoption fee includes a 2 week trial Boz is a Shih Tzu / Pekingese (mix) that was rescued by Furry Kids' Refuge from a shelter where he was picked up as a stray. When no one claimed him, a Furry Kids' Volunteer/Foster Mom took him home! Boz was adopted to a family who cared for him and loved him very much. However. their jobs changed and they were gone for very long periods of time and he didn't do well with that. He started becoming destructive in the home. Boz would do best in a home where he is the only dog or with another dog that can hold their own, yes Boz can be a bit bossy ... (Read More)sometimes! He would also do best with a family where there is a family member home most of the time. Boz is a very cuddly Furry Kid. He does love to play with small furry toys as well as the other dogs in his foster home. He walks really well on a leash and also likes to ride in the car. He does snore slightly when he sleeps. He also makes funny noises that are very cute when he is excited or when he is playing. He enjoys being brushed and flops over on his back so that you can brush and rub his belly. Boz does have an eye problem, it is called dry eye. He takes two eye drops everyday, these drops prevent his eyesight from getting worse and helps tear production. He lets his foster Mom put the drops in my eyes with no fussing or squirming. He will need to take these drops for the rest of his life, they are not expensive. Boz has been neutered, vaccinated, and tested negative for heartworms. If you're interested in Boz, please go to www.furrykidsrefuge.org and fill out an application...just click on 'Adopt a Dog'. A volunteer will be in touch as soon as possible. Thanks for your interest in me! (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Portia was adopted from us as a puppy. She is a shih tzu/border terrier mix. At first, the adopters seemed to be very happy with her but in the last two years we have received several calls from authorities saying that she was running loose. We picked her up three times, returning her to the adopters and imploring them to please keep her safe and please register her microchip tag. They did neither. Earlier this month, we were called once again, went to get her and when I called the adopters, they told me that they had moved out of state and had given her away! No matter. We had not planned to return her to them anyway. Before you ... (Read More)think that Portia is an escape artist, I have a 4 foot chain link fence, just like they did and she has never escaped from my yard. Portia is a sweet girl and deserves to live where she will be loved and kept safe. She was born on October 13, 2011 so is getting ready to turn 3 years old. As I said earlier, she is a shih tzu/border terrier mix, has a wiry coat and weighs just about 18 pounds. Portia is spayed, up to date on all shots, heartworm negative, on hw and flea preventative and is microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200. (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is little Jimmy, he was going to be EU and I was pulling a Shih tzu from Miami Dade when I had a lady beg me to take Jimmy to since they were going to put him down, they said he was a senior about 12. boy were they wrong he was about 4 when I got him. I spent a whooping $800 to save this dog. So will not even come close to what I owe on my credit cards to save him. It was really hard to pull from Florida. Jimmy possibly was with a senior as he really is not much for being held but loves to be petted, He is selective whom picks him up, he can snap, the older women and man next to me pick him up all the time and he is really great with ... (Read More)them. He is a little guy about 7 lbs. He goes potty and poop outside but I have caught him blessing corners, so not fully potty trained , but they do have bands for male dogs to help with this. He is really been so ready for that new forever home, he has been here for about 10 months now. Looking for that right home for him. , Needing to find homes for a couple doggies. (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This little guy was at a shelter for a long time, I was watching him as he was adopted and returned for escaping, He was going to be on the EU list. I had a friend in Texas go to pull him for me, HE WAS GONE, A college got him and was going to use him for xrays , I could not have that happen to him so contacted friends and they got him back from the college I had to pay full price for him, But he was safe. I do save dogs in need at shelters, when about to be EU. I do not make a dime. I do it for the love of the dogs and help those in such need at shelters. With Time Trixie has become such a lover boy, He will potty outside but seems to want ... (Read More)to go poop on a potty pad in the bathroom. I do walk him on a lead, Fenced yard Privacy fence would be ideal maybe he would poop off of the lead and could not climb the fence. HE LOVES DOGS. ALL.. AND kids, he likes to bug my older cat but none of the others. He is looking for his forever home now. Could that be you....:) I would really like him to stay near like not far from me in case he does not work out for you. Would like him to go to someone in an area that if he did get out he would not vanish. He only goes 3 doors down when he gets out, my errors letting out other dogs and accidentally let him out to. He does not look for cars, so dont want him to get hit. Just need someone to give some training cause this is one adorable dog and deserves a loving forever home. (Less)

    Approx DOB: 3/2008, Approx Weight: 13 lbs. $125 adoption fee includes a 2 week trial to ensure everyone's happiness! Sheldon was pulled from a local shelter. One of our volunteers saw him when she visited the shelter one day. His eyes were a mess. She feared they would have to be removed. She feared no one would adopt him in time. She asked if Furry Kids could help him. We fell in love with his sweet face, and of course couldn't say no. We had Sheldon evaluated at Eye Care for Animals. We were told that he is blind, but he does not have glaucoma like we had feared he might. So he shouldn't need to have his eyes removed. The eye ... (Read More)specialist told us to start him on Ocuvite eye supplements and to have his eyes checked at least annually. Sheldon is great with other dogs but will stand up for himself if necessary. He does not like cats. Also, we would not recommend a home with children under 8 years old. Sheldon is very sweet and has adjusted well to the loss of his site.

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