Rescue Me ID: 15-03-27-00443Cookie (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Cookie is a 6 month old shih tzu/rat terrier mix looking for her forever home. Since she is a mix with a non 'hair' breed, she is not 100% 'hypoallergenic' so we are not sure if she would be the best fit for a family who has allergic family members. Regardless, she is very sweet & loving!

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Coco is a 3 year old female Shih Tzu who came to the shelter as a stray. She might be ok with other dogs and cats but will depend on the other animals. Coco is very shy and a little weary of people at first. It appears she'll pick who she likes and will warm up to. So that being said we think she would do best in a home with out kids. She'll need a quiet home to call her own. She would be great in a condo or apartment. For more information please call 845-354-7900

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

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

    I'm a really easygoing boy who needs a new home to love me after my owner had to go to a nursing home. My name is Toby, and I'm a 5-6 year old Shihtzu mix who weighs 34lbs, and I need a foster or forever home I'm a very friendly, confident boy who is housebroken, walks well on a leash, and gets along very well with other. I get along with older, respectful children. I'm not a huge fan of the toddler set because I don't people being directly in my face. I'm neutered, microchipped, and fully vaccinated. All I need is a loving home!

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-15-00552Molly Tanner (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    I'm One of the Tanner Collection! Our friends in a Tennessee shelter were bursting at the seems with dogs and begging us to visit again so no one had to die just because of overcrowding. We said we were sorry, but didn't have the room right then. We were all very happy that the next week was a wonderful adoption week and so the trip was planned! Denise and Cheryl left here at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday for a whirlwind trip managing to save the lives of 12 dogs, 2 adorable 5 week old shepherd pups and two gorgeous kittens! Everyone was a bit weary when they arrived here at 3:30 a.m. on Thursday, but soon their confused eyes softened into a ... (Read More)look of understanding. The lucky 16 will have the last name of Tanner and we are eternally grateful to Christine, a supporter and volunteer as she sponsored this trip south. Tanner is Christine's canine companion and we are told he is very spoiled. Every time Christine goes home from volunteering she tells him how lucky he is and she says this is his way of paying it forward. The two nameless pups are Drew and Brook, named after Christine's niece and nephew. Thank you Christine! Molly was born about January 26, 2013 and weighs about 18 lbs. How could we leave her behind? Well, we couldn't once we were told she had a bacterial and a secondary fungal skin infection. We knew this would send her to the gas chamber lickety split! So, we got her on meds and she is doing wonderful and feels SO much better! She is just the SWEETEST thing and wonderful with the other dogs, but we do feel an adult home will be best. We are not sure about house training, but do want to mention that many of these little dogs benefit from having a potty floor pad handy when they just can't hold it any longer. (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    I would like to welcome Daisy into the Joyful Rescue family! Daisy was born about January 1, 2006 and has lived her life birthing babies for monetary gain in a mill. She has decided that she is loving life now. I have never met a dog that wags her tail 24/7 but Daisy does. She is truly one of the happiest little dogs I have had the pleasure to foster. Daisy weighs approximately 14 pounds. She is adjusting to living in a home and has started to play a bit with the many nylabones that are around the house. She gets along with all the dogs and seems to like people. She is shy at first, but warms up quickly. Daisy has a lot to learn on ... (Read More)pottying outside and may benefit from potty floor pads throughout life as a lot of small dogs do. She will need alot of love and patience as she learns how to be a real dog. Daisy will need a secured fenced in yard as she does not walk on a leash as of yet. Now that the weather is breaking, we are going to give it a try and see how she does. If you feel you are the one that can give Daisy a wonderful life, please fill out an application at Joyful Resues! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-25-00385Duster (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Duster was born about August 9, 2005 and weighs about 10 lbs. He has had a cage partner his entire life and truly should go to a home with another dog. Actually, every mill dog does best going into a home with another 'normal' dog. A woman that has befriended a group of millers in central New York has promised to see nothing, hear nothing, and say nothing as long as the millers hand dogs over to her once they are through with them instead of killing them. She then distributes the 'used' dogs to rescues and sends many here. This group was only marginal fearful of us, so not too bad. The Bichon has what we call 'puppy mill foot' and will ... (Read More)probably need to be treated with antibiotics off and on throughout life. This condition happens when they've stood on wire bottom cages for 24/7 years, upon year, upon years. It tends to happen to the heavier dogs, the lesser weight dogs don't get it so bad - makes sense. In this load the fur wasn't too bad compared to what we've seen, but the adult dogs had normal mill dog teeth where you can't see any white at all and when you check the teeth your fingers smell like you've just put them inside a rotting carcass. They will be getting dentals, but a single dental doesn't undo the damage done for so many years and will need to be done on a rather regular basis until the teeth are all gone or the erosion ceases by your good care. We will be working on house training, but surely you will have work to do in this area and we have wonderful notes to help you. These are notes that have had the best success with mill dogs. So, if I've not deterred you by this, brutally honest, depressing description by now and you still feel that you want to help one of these dogs and experience the magical joy of watching one of them decide they can love a human and become a real dog or as real as they will ever become, go ahead and e mail and ask us to send you our 'Working will Mill Dog Notes' and we will be happy to do so. Adopting one of these dogs is not so much about you as it is about the dog, it is an amazingly unselfish thing to do. You will be rewarded in the long run, but it may take awhile. (Less)

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

    Shih-Tzu means Lion Dog in Mandarin. Shih-Tzus are descended from Lhasa Apsos bred with Pekingese. Paintings of dogs resembling Shih-Tzus exist dating back to the sixteenth century. Shih-Tzus were popular with Chinese royalty. Chinese did not allow Shih-Tzus out of the country until the 1930s.
