Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweet little Gizmo!!!! This adorable senior was rescued from a local shelter. Poor Gizmo kept getting overlooked because he's blind. He may be partially blind but that doesn;t stop him from following his foster mom around the house! Gizmo is @10 years young and a very healthy boy. He's a sweet guy and gets along fine with his senior foster fur sister. Gizmo may not want to be bothered by youngsters at his age so a quiet adult home or with older kids would be his ideal family. Gizmo is house trained and crate trained. He loves a good snuggle and snacking. Please contact Tammy at 908-433-1796 or email us at for more info ...

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Adoption is needed for TWO Shih Tzu's. One is7 yrs old and the other is 9 years old. They need to go as a team. They have been together for 7 years. They need a home with a fenced in yard and a family who has lots of love to share. They are used to being crated while their humans work and because they have always had a yard to just go out too---that is important. These dogs belonged to my son and I have caring for them for a year and a half. Up top date on all, their vaccinations. He and my DIL had 5 dogs but after the birth of their son---it was too overwhelming to care for all 5 so, they keep the other three. My son never 'house ... (Read More)trained' them and that is why the fenced in yard is so very important. A family or individual with a regular schedule would also be very helpful. I work for myself so my schedule is far from regular. I love these two dogs, would do anything for them but they need a better situation. (Less)

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