We are just trying to give him some exposure to new adopters since he's been stuck in boarding for months with no interest in a rural area. Bio from his current rescue: Ferbie is part Pomeranian and part Shih Tzu. Owner surrendered to us in fairly poor condition a few months ago. Things are looking up now. He's neutered and on meds for a mild thyroid condition. Around 3 years old and around 15 lb. Lived with other dogs and ... (Read More)there are dogs he interacts with in boarding which he does well with. New info 4/27: At boarding I'm told he will go out to the bathroom if they take him out, so it's possible he's got some clue about housebreaking. He's good with cats & dogs. Loves attention. Lap dog. 4/28: His rescue just messaged me with a new photo that I've uploaded. He's still got a bald spot on his rear end from thyroid but she said his skin/coat overall looks a lot better than when they first got him in a few months ago. ADOPTION APPLICATION (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-26-00392Geo (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Things that get better with age: - cheese - fine wines - dogs! Geo is just the dog to prove how true that is. At around 10 years old this sweet guy still has plenty of pep in his step, but is over some of that puppy silliness that can leave you pulling your hair out. Geo was a very loved companion to a senior couple that unfortunately were unable to care for him any longer because of their own medical issues. Geo appears to be blind, but does not let that interfere with enjoying everything life has to offer (and he is a master at finding his way into the nearest lap when anyone sits on the floor with him). He is good with other dogs and ... (Read More)cats and loves all people and is sure to make a lucky family very lucky! Because of his sight issues he would be best in a home without young kids, or with those who can understand not to startle him or he may react adversely. (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Peppy has been living with my elderly mother for 12 years. She was 2 or 3 when he was adopted from a shelter. He had a few issues with snapping if someone got near his food, but he overcame them quickly. My mother is 88 and in poor health and can no longer care for Peppy. My son had him for 3 months but his work schedule has changed and he can no longer foster Peppy. We are out of options and need to try to find a good home for Peppy ASAP. Peppy is still in good health for his age, and the picture I posted was taken a month ago. He would do well to live out his final years in a quiet household with no existing pets or children.

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.
