    Lucky is a very sweet dog when he gains your trust. He plays well with other animals.

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Brooke is a two year old shih tzu/pug mix. She is potty trained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash! Brooke admits that she is a bit of a diva, and it takes her a little bit to warm up to new people and dogs. Once she gets past those awkward introductions though (and you sneak her a yummy snack), she'll be your best friend. She'll ask for love, follow you around the house, and demand some attention.

Animal ID: PPR15-01Murphy (female)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, my name is Murphy. I'm looking for a new home. I am a male white Shih-tzu who is 10 years old and weighs close to 20 lbs. %A0 I joined Puppy Pals back a few years ago when I was adopted with another male named Gizmo. (See our picture). We were adopted to a wonderful lady named Kimberly who took us camping and dressed us up for special occasions like Halloween and Christmas and always sent pictures to our foster home. %A0 We lost our home because our mom passed away unexpectedly and we were homeless and brought back to Puppy Pals Rescue. We have done a lot of mourning and we miss those relatives very much. ... (Read More)Recently, our dad came to visit us and took us to our mom's grave so we could see where she is. Unfortunately, none of the family can keep us. %A0 My mom loved PPR very much and knows they will find me another loving family. I'm not an active dog - and from my pictures you can tell I'm a little overweight and actually'| I have lost some. (Though I've tried the green bean diet - and it's not for me! ) %A0 I'm not perfect on house-training. It might be due to there being many other male dogs at the house, but I do outside to potty. I don't mind wearing a belly-band and have worn them on and off during my stay here. %A0 If you are an older or single person and looking for a wonderful companion to come home to'| I'm your boy. %A0 Murphy is a great dog and deserves to find happiness again. If you have questions about Murphy, please contact his foster home at the link found at If you think he's the pup for you, please go to and apply for him! (Email his foster home and let them know you applied so they can be sure the application is received!) (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,

    Sebastian is 2-years old. Crate trained. He has been with us since 9-7-2014. He is protective of his food. He weighs 12.5 pounds and will never get any bigger. Definitely a cutie. Right now, Sebastian is working hard at settling in with our family of 6 other rescue dogs. He is liking our efforts to socialize him. He can be picked up and cuddled lightly. He is very busy with his toys, running around the yard and house with the other dogs. We still have occasional dust-ups when he gets caught in a 'crowd' or thinks one of the other dogs has looked at his treat a little too closely. He is coming around, needs a patient, loving hand, ... (Read More)and an open heart. My husband and I are in our 70s and need a helping hand ourselves. If you think you can help this little guy, please contact us. (Less)

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