Rescue Me ID: 16-07-23-00244Dukey (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Dukey is 6 years old, he is great with kids, dogs and cats. He really needs a home where someone is not working all day. He has separation anxiety and even breaks out of crates. We have to put him in a small pet carrier while we are at work and this is breaking my heart. It is not fair to him to live this way. He is such a sweet boy and deserves to be out all day, not locked in the small crate. He was hurting himself getting out of the metal crates and he would tear things up around the house and pee on our shoes I think because he is upset. When sitting in the yard with him he doesn't even have to be tied up, he never runs away. I love this ...

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Cargo! He's a handsome, 5 year old, spunky Shih Tzu guy. Cargo is dog and cat friendly and prefers to live in a home with older kids or no kids. He gets a little fussy about his bones and food and so the little ones might not understand. In addition his crate home is his 'castle' and he requires peace and quiet when he occupies it. Thus, a 'no vacancy' sign outside his crate might give interlopers a clue not to enter. When outside his 'castle', Cargo is super sweet and friendly! He loves to go for walks and is a pleasure to accompany you on a leash. Cargo is mostly housebroken and is a great, playful pup in need of a new forever home. ...

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.
