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 Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Emma is a senior, 10 year old, small mix we rescued from a high kill shelter; when she was rescued, she could barely walk, was severely matted, and malnourished. With a few months of TLC and a good diet, she is now ready for her forever home. She is fine with calm, gentle dogs, and we prefer she go to a quiet and mature household, without any hectic activity. The home we are looking for, for her, is a mature senior or couple, looking for a loving and low maintenance companion. Emma's favorite thing to do, is be your lap baby. She is a very sweet girl. We are a small rescue group that saves senior dogs from euthanasia in high kill shelters. ... (Read More)We have them fully vetted, including HW tested, then place them, with no adopt fee, in the best forever home we can find for them. We do require our adoption application be completed, expect a current vet reference, will conduct a home check. We do everything possible to rehome our seniors correctly, and in the most loving home.

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.

    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. Chinese did not allow Shih-Tzus out of the country until the 1930s.
