Rescue Me ID: 15-10-07-00495Ewok (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Welcome Ewok! Our Ewok has one tragic tale to tell. He was found as a stray in a large city, close to death. He was severely matted and had been attacked by another dog. His wounds were pretty horrific, and the infection had rendered him so weak that he had to stay 38 days at our vet's office having his wounds flushed and bandages changed. But, Ewok isn't letting that get him down. He is a super snuggler, happy, playful little 8 pound boy who loves to strut his stuff on walks. Because Ewok does need a few minutes to warm up to new people, his ideal family would have older children. Adopt Ewok today!

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-26-00240Aden (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

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

    This is Aden. In February, Aden's mommy contacted me and told me she was leaving her husband, couldn't keep Aden, and if I didn't take him he was going to the shelter. Aden is paralyzed. It's hard enough getting out of the shelter. A paralyzed dog faces an even more difficult time. Aden is a very sweet dog. He asks not for much. Just a lap and someone around as much as possible. He scoots around on the floor with no problem. He wears a diaper as he cannot control his bladder. He is a tiny little 9 lb guy with a HUGE heart. Aden is around 9 years old. He doesn't do well at being crated or contained.. Give him free roam in a safe room, and he ... (Read More)is fine. Since he wears a diaper and his bladder leaks, he needs frequent diaper changes. An ideal home would be where his mom/dad work from home or are only gone a few hours at a time. Since he is small and scoots around, a home with little kids or one with slightly older but active kids would not be a good idea. He is great with dogs! He is great with cats! He recently had a full dental since arriving here. He is healthy otherwise. Because he wears diapers you will need to be cautious of UTIs. Frequent diaper changing and properly cleaning goes a long way. Aden is located in Morris County (Jefferson Twp.) If you are interested in inquiring about Aden, you may pm me. I would prefer to keep him somewhat local. Home check necessary. Warning: He is a big snorer! ;) (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.
