Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Einstein is a male shih tzu mix, nearly 2 years old and weighs less about 12 lbs. He's friendly--dominant at times towards other dogs so he would be best suited for an only dog household where he can get all the attention he craves. Lap time is his favorite. He's housebroken on a regular schedule, crate trained, learning to walk on a leash. He is a friendly boy, came from a situation where he was allowed to rule the roost! Please do not ask us to consider your application if you have other dogs in the household--it's not fair to Einstein--he wants you all to yourself and he's worth it! He's neutered, UTD on his vaccinations, ... (Read More)heartworm negative and microchipped. Visit our website at: and click on the link in the top right for a free on-line application to start the process of adopting your lifetime companion. We do not adopt to families who choose to leave their pets outside either in a fenced yard unattended or tethered outside all alone. If this is your intention, do not apply. Our fur-kids are very special to us and deserve no less than to live and be treated as one of the family and enjoy the comforts of year round heat and air conditioning. We only adopt to responsible individuals who value the life of a kid in fur as they would their own child or family member. (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

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

    I am already famous around these parts. I mean Wake Forest Community Info was blowing up when I hit the scene. A very sick and sad senior doggy looking like death a the time. LOOK AT ME NOW!! After much antibiotic and Julye and Charles my amazing fosters I am good as new! Now I will need eye drops every day but really that is NOTHING. I am being fixed Jan 6th and then ready for my forever home. They will chip me too. I have had all my shots and I am heartworm negative too. I am on HW and flea Prevention too. Questions on me email Julye here. Since I am a special Senior I know a loving person will apply for me ... (Read More)soon.I am waiting!! Mom wanted you to know all about me so she wrote this: Hobo is a special and precious senior. He is a fighter as far as his determination to survive against all the odds. He's been groomed and treated for eye, ear and skin infections. He is HW negative (amazing considering his history!) and is on HW and flea preventative. I've kept him since December 14th and am in love with his spirit! He has responded awesomely to all his meds! He has limited vision due to a cataract in one eye and cloudiness in the other. His sense of smell is incredible and he gets around fairly good. He is very hard of hearing unless you are next to him. He loves hotdogs and peanut butter! He loves to eat. He's put on weight and looks amazing. His hair is growing back and the skin infection has cleared up. He barks when he wants attention and frightened. I usually will pick him up and rub his back and belly which he responds to like a cat! He loves it. His bark is not loud at all. He is very curious about his surroundings and my dogs. As far as I can tell, he is good around other dogs and people of all sizes. I'm not sure about cats but can test him if you want. As long as he's got your attention, age and size doesn't bother him. He doesn't play much now but I'm certain he will once he realizes he is safe and in a great place. My dogs are curious about him (new guy in town) and have met him and walked with him. I've not seen any aggression on his part. He is at least 10 and just wants to live out the remainder of his life with love and comfort. He will be on eye drops forever as his eyes don't tear up. I should find out about any heart medication today. He's just a lovebug who wants love and attention. He would be a great addition to a less active home with people who want to love and take care of him. If you want to know more feel free to email me. I would love to find this special senior dog a wonderful and loving home. Do you have a space in your heart for me? (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hello. My name is Carlos. My mommy told me that she was having a new baby and they feel like I may be happier somewhere else. This news made me so sad. However, these nice people took me in and told me they would help me find a new family. I become very attached to my family and very protective of them. For this reason, I would rather not share my attention with children. I would be so happy to show you how much I can love you. Won't you give me a chance?

PIease Read Before Adopting a Shih Tzu in North Carolina
    Shih Tzu Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina 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.
