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

    Howdy, my name is Mr. Petey. I am a 2 year old Boston Terrier mix - who the rescue was told was mixed with Shih-Tzu. I'm a big fella by Puppy Pals standards - weighing in at 28 lbs. I am black and white. I have a long white mane around my neck. It makes me look like I have a fur collar around my neck. %A0 I was picked up as a stray out in a field down in the Centerville area by a local dog warden. I was staying at the shelter and no one came to claim me, so I was just waiting for my fate. Mr. Russ and Linda came by to check out some other dogs and noticed how sweet that I appeared and wanted to save me. So now I'm with ... (Read More)Puppy Pals Rescue. %A0 I have been neutered, heartworm and fecal tested, received all my shots and have been micro-chipped. Now... I'm looking for my forever home. %A0 One of my favorite things is running out in the yard and rolling on my back in the grass - it feels so good. Many thanks to PPR because I might not have had that opportunity again! %A0 My foster parents have learned that I should probably be the only dog in my new home. The only possibility would be if your other dog was very laid-back. The say it appears that I like all the attention and I can be toy aggressive at times. Everyone who meets me loves me, but if another dog was in the family, we would need to spend time together to be sure we are compatible. %A0 I love my foster parents and love to play. If you sit on the floor I will come over and get in your lap. I am just a big doggie baby. %A0 I like to ride in the car and I walk great on a leash. I will make the right home a wonderful and faithful companion. %A0 If you have any questions please contact my foster mom at the link found at Fill out an application if you are interested in adopting me - you can find those at %A0(Email my foster home to let them know you applied so they can make sure the application is received!) I just can't wait to find a forever home!%A0 Thanks!!! (Less)

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)

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.
