|Rescue Me ID: 16-04-07-00521Rudy (male)|
In all my life of owning pets, nothing like this has ever happened to me. I'm facing divorce, bankruptcy, and raising 3 children (all under age 10) alone. I am a responsible pet owner but now I'm in a situation where I'm desperate for help. My dog Rudy has been in the family for almost four years. I have another dog and he gets along with him very well. He also gets along with cats. He is a purebred Shiranian - I did a DNA test years ago with him and he is 50% shihzhu and 50% pomeranian so he was bred. I adopted him out of a shelter though when he was about a year old. I DON'T shop for dogs (that's why my other dog is a pit bull mix!) . He has more of a pomerianian temperament though. Now that I am going to lose my home, I have to move. I cannot find an apartment that will allow both dogs. Also, Rudy has some challenges... It could be he senses changes and is very sensitive. Early last year, I began to notice that Rudy was acting strangely...being responsible I brought him to the vet and had him checked out. They noticed some yeast in his ears so I treated it, but that was it. Rudy started to get aggressive toward my middle daughter, but she has lived with him since age 2 and has never hurt him. He began barking more often and growling at strangers. I brought him back to the vet and they couldn't explain his behavior. They put him on some calming meds and told me to go to a certified pet behaviorist, WHICH I DID. This cost me over $400 for an evaluation but Rudy was worth it. The certified behaviorist evaluated Rudy and said that he has fear-based aggression and that she was worried that he could not be helped. She gave me some ideas to try with Rudy and I did. Some worked, some didn't. When I followed up with her, because Rudy was now getting so difficult, I could not get him groomed (two groomers quit on me!) she recommended he go to the vet and be euthanized. She said he had mental illness and couldn't be helped. I could not accept that, so I went to a second vet and unfortunately that vet agreed with the behaviorist and said that Rudy should be put to sleep. I still decided to work with him and started looking into dog training places, even places that board him and cost thousands of dollars. This was late last year. Now this year, I am going to lose my home in a matter of weeks. No apartment will let Rudy come there with his terrible barking. Plus, no place I can find has enough room and will let me keep two dogs. Rudy needs to be groomed and I can't find a groomer to do it so he doesn't look the best. I have the money to groom him but no groomer will help, and I can't afford to have him sedated for grooming which was the next idea. I know there are some who will say he should be put to sleep and maybe he should be, but if there is a chance, ANYWHERE, I want to give it to him before it's really too late. Rudy is house and crate trained. He does chew on some things. He loves to play with chew toys and balls, he will do this for a long time! He could be a good dog but he needs help. If he doesn't get help, then he will die.Please I know there is the perfect home for him. He's beautiful and still a young dog. I own another dog (a pit bull mix) so I have rescued dogs and have never had to give one away ever. This is NOT a money making thing for me; I am looking for a home that could help Rudy or maybe a farm where he could just 'be a dog' or a rescue. Rudy isn't a good choice for a home with small children; he can scare them with barking and growling. He has never bitten anyone but he has recently snapped at a person when that person confronted him and got too close (almost in his face). He is fearful of touch which is also why he can't be groomed. I have always taken him to good groomers so I don't know if something a long time ago happened at a groomer or what. Please help me give Rudy a chance. I am not asking for any money. I am asking for help from a rescue or an individual. If you are an individual, you need to have good vet references. Rudy is up to date on all of his vaccines, he has a microchip and he is properly licensed. I have $100 saved to take Rudy to the vet, but I will donate that money to a rescue who is able to help him. I really don't want to bring him to the SPCA, I think he will be quickly put to sleep there because of his behavior. If you can help, please let me know. PLEASE unless you have been in this situation, don't judge me, I won't answer rotten emails and will just delete them. I am trying to get help for my dog so he doesn't have to die. It may be possible with the right home environment and some really good help, he can be a better dog who can have a future. This is the only way I can think to reach out. I'd be willing for him to go out of state providing you can give me references preferably from your Vet etc. I prefer someone local that I can do a home check and see if you have other dogs whether they're compatible. Rudy is in Collegeville near Philadelphia,PA (Less)

|Animal ID: Lehigh ValleyPippin - URGENT (male)|
This is Pippin. He is about 5yrs old. Not sure what he is mixed with.. Looks like he may be a Shih Tzu or Lhasa type mix. He is good with kids, cats and dogs- after proper introductions. He NEEDS a new home with someone that either works from home or is home all day. He has extreme separation anxiety, which is causing him to go to the bathroom in the home, even if he had just been outside. A family or person who is able to allow him to be their constant companion is what this little guy needs. NO EXCEPTIONS to that. There are no known other medical issues.. He is Neutered and Up To Date on Shots. Vet records will also be available upon request from the owner. This is a Rehoming. He is with his current owner, but needs to find a new home as soon as possible. There is a Pre-Adoption Questionnaire to fill out, prior to any meet and greet with Pippin.. And owner of Pippin reserves the right to do a home check and also has the final say on who he is rehomed to. The owner is extremely upset about having to rehome him, but this is what is best for him, since he really needs human companionship and someone that can really work w/ him on his anxiety/stress issues when alone.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-03-13-00206Peanut (male)|
Peanut is an older Shih Tzu, but adorable. His perfect environment would be someone who has no other dogs. He is good with older kids (12+), not recommended with young children, as when he feels threatened (by unusual movements or aggressive behavior) he will growl, but does not bite. Loves some one on one attention, a couple of times a day. He is low energy and hearing impaired. The perfect lap dog. Looking to place in a home before April 10th, 2016.

|Rescue Me ID: 16-02-24-00218Eleanor (female)|
Meet Eleanor! Eleanor is an adult Shih Tzu terrier mix that came to us as a stray. She appears to be around 4 year old. Eleanor has not had an easy life - she was covered in mats and has clearly had multiple litters of puppies. Eleanor has some medical issues that are being addressed. She has multiple mammary tumors from not being spayed. Those will be removed and she'll be ready for home. Eleanor has some vision limitations but gets along just fine. She absolutely loves other dogs and must be either adopted as a bonded pair or go to a home with at least one current dog. She is very playful - will for sure want to tumble and wrestle with her doggie pal so a younger dog may be a best match. Eleanor loves her people! It takes her a few minutes to warm up but after she does she won't leave your side. That is unless she's not off playing with her furry friends. Eleanor would also do best in a home with older children. Adult dog adoptions include - spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, 4dx, fecal, and flea preventative. Puppy adoptions include - spay/neuter, vaccines including boosters, microchip, fecal, and flea preventative Adoptions are held every Saturday from 10am-3pm at our shelter (1049 Macarthur Road in Whitehall across the street from the old Lehigh Valley Dairy) For more information please email us at email@example.com Applications can be downloaded at www.lvpeaceablekingdom.info All adoptions must be completed in person - we are unable to ship or transport dogs.

Patches the White Shih tzu is 8 and (the vet says 5) Black and white is Tia Pronounced Ty) 11 Bonded pair and we do not want to separate them. They both are wonderful boys, and we are surely hoping to find then a home together. They are incredibly bonded, they sleep together, play together and eat together. They both are completely up to date on their vaccinations, both are neutered, and both are micro-chipped. They both are house trained and will tell you when they need to go out, with a whine. If you go to bed early, if you put pee-pads down, and you don't hear them ask to go out, they will absolutely go on the pee pad. They love to go for walks on a double leash. Ty, the black and white shih tzu does have cataracts starting in his eyes, however he does seem to see just fine. There adoption fee covers both of their adoption fees.

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