Rescue Me ID: 14-04-11-00186Charlie (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

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

    10 year old shih tzu poodle mix. Great dog, very friendly and happy. However, he has developed severe separation anxiety and I believe it is in his best interest to find a home who can better care for him and his condition.

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Teddy is a rescue from a lady who had too many dogs. He is 11 months old, has been totally vetted and actually is Bella's brother. They both are very bonded and I would love to see both of them adopted together as they are constant companions. Teddy is more outgoing than Bella as she is still scared and needs some TLC. They are full grown, Teddy weighs 16 pounds and Bella weighs 12 pounds. Won't you consider giving Bella and Teddy a permanent home where they can be loved? They deserve to find a great home!!!

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-24-00235Millie (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed 

    Meet Millie.... Millie is one of our special needs babies who is going to need a lot of help. Millie is in very bad shape but we are committed to doing everything we can for her. Millie is 10 year old Poodle/Shih-Tzu mix who was surrendered to a shelter after her owner could no longer care for her. However her story does not end there. Millie is suffering from a grade 5 heart murmur, enlarged heart, several (5 to be exact) breast tumors, sclerosis of the eyes, luxating patella in BOTH back legs and she has no use of her left back leg. We are going to be scheduling a surgery to remove/biopsy her tumors and while this is a risky surgery ... (Read More)due to her heart, we feel it best to give her a chance. We are also looking to getting her a wheelchair to help her walk. Millie is a snuggle bug and just loves everyone she meets. She loves to lay on your lap all day long. She is not a fan of bigger dogs but is learning how to relax with the resident boxer and great dane. (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    This is Bella. Bella is from a very chaotic situation involving too many dogs. Her owner was very overwhelmed and rescues are stepping up to help her. I will be getting Bella on Wednesday, taking her to the vet and having her spayed, distemper/parvo, rabies, heartworm tested, micro chipped and nails trimmed. My wish is to find her a home with a calmer atmosphere and have her go directly to her new adoptive parent. That way the transition will be easier for her. If someone has the time to devote to this girl, she will make an awesome pet. She just needs more human interaction with lots of hugs and petting!!!!

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.
