Rescue Me ID: 15-05-17-00054teddy (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    We have Teddy since he was a puppy. He is adorable looking and people are attracted to him. As his family - two very senior citizens he does not match well with us. He has become aggressive toward us, as he has gotten older. He has had training which works only sometimes. Our dog walker has boarded him at her house at times and says he is very good there even with her young nieces. We would like to find a better match for him.

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

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

    Hello, I need to re-home my shitzu and need help. I can't take care of her and I don't want her pug down. She is a young 8 year old. Lots of energy when you initially meet her, but quiets down and cuddles. Good with kids and adults and just loves attention. She needs to be with a young or older couple who will spoil her. She craves attention! I feel horrible and know people give grief to people who give up their pets, but if I can't give her what she needs then I don't think it fair to her. I am overwhelmed ... Do you have any suggestions? I tried Facebook awhile ago and felt like I was judged. I love her, but my girls show her ... (Read More)no attention to speak of and I work all day and then between taking care of Brian. With stage IV cancer its not fair. I often travel with Brian and struggle finding her care. My neighbor is horrible..she offers to watch her and I get home and she has simply placed food in her crate with her. So now Suzie is starting to miss behave, is...stealing food and going to the bathroom in the house. I feel horrible. She is good with cats and other animals. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-22-00749Sasha (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Male Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sasha is a loving dog. She does great with older kids, but hasn't been doing great with my 1 year old because my 1 year old doesn't understand to stop bothering the dog. I have 2 babies and as hard as this is for us, we are not giving Sasha the attention she needs. Having her with 2 babies so young is too difficult for us as my husband works a lot. She is cuddly (has slept with us every night for the 6 years we have had her) and she also likes to play. She has accidents in the house when she is not on a good walking schedule and she barks when people come up to the house (mailman, etc).

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-31-00597Max (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Poor Max is an 8-10 year old Shih Tzu who was abandoned by his owners at a kill shelter in NYC the week before Christmas! He was in very rough shape - very matted and dirty, missing his right eye and suffering with a bad case of Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca in his remaining eye. He had that eye removed on 12/23 and is now fully recovered, though obviously he is now blind. He also had 7 rotten teeth removed. We are so happy to say he is now completely healthy and ready for a home of his very own! Despite his blindness, he's an independent and self sufficient little guy who doesn't seem to notice that he has a disability. He is perfectly ... (Read More)house-trained, gets along well with cats and most dogs, seems healthy and agile for his age (estimated at about 8 years old), and loves belly rubs and nylabones to chew. Max would be an excellent companion for an adult household, and he is fine with being alone in the house while people are at work. Max is a little wary of strangers, and he doesn't like to be picked up, and for these reasons, we are looking for a home with no children under age 10. All of our animals are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, heartworm tested and treated if necessary. Vet references are required and prior to adoption a home inspection will be conducted. Transport options available. Adoption fee applies. If interested go to for an application. (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.
