Rescue Me ID: 15-06-24-00534Rocky (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Rocky! Breed: Shih tzu Gender: Male Adoption Fee: $169 Date into Rescue: 9/26/2014 Reason for being in rescue: HEART in columbia Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Yes, heartworm positive and behavioral Weight: Est 15 Height: Est 13' What is my personality like? Rocky is very unique - and it will take a very special person to adopt him. Rocky has a very strong willed personality, with a mind of his own. He is a live and let live type of boy. He adores the tennis ball, it will keep him busy for hours and hours. Rocky also does well with other dogs, and loves to play! Rocky is not a very ... (Read More)affectionate dog at this time. Perhaps in a home where he trusts somebody, he will become one. He will snap at you if you pick him up when he doesn't want to be handled. We believe that with the right home and guidance, that Rocky has the potential to turn into a really good guy. He is misunderstood, and we do not know anything about his past - which i am sure is why he behaves the way he does. He is lightly heartworm positive and we are taking him through the slow - kill method. .He is available for adoption. Age: est 6 years old Please understand that these are rescued dogs, and sometimes their ages are only a guess. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture, and not to discriminate against older dogs. You never know which dog will steal your heart when you meet them! How I act when I first meet new people: Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. To apply, please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application. Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.

Only uses 3 legs, one leg was injured and healed incorrectly Weight: Est 10 lbs Height: Est 11' What is my personality like? Brody was surrendered to CPR by his owners, who could not care for him.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-15-00035Jude (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Jude! Breed: poodle mix Gender: male Adoption fee: $75 Date into Rescue: 9/11/14 Reason for being in rescue: Found as stray in Columbia SC Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? No Weight: Est ' 12 Height: Est '11 Birthdate - when Jude first came in, we were told by the shelter he came from that he was around 5 which would make his birthday around September of 2009 - but this is only a guess after getting to know him, the new guess is more like September of 2002. He's definitely an oldie but a goodie What is my personality like? This loving lad is super fluffy! He was found as a stray and brought into a ... (Read More)Columbia shelter. He's very calm, sweet, polite, innocent, well-mannered, loving, and friendly. He loves to be held, caressed, and comforted. He also likes to snuggle and cuddle. Jude is friendly with everyone he meets, two and four legged. He has wonderful manners and would be a great addition to someones family. Jude is older but still has spunk! He is mostly laid back but does like to get up and romp around each day. He still goes outside with all of the young dogs and keeps up with them with ease. His vision is a little less than perfect but he sees well enough to get around with no problems. He is gentle and loving - and very deserving of spending his last years with a forever loving family. How I act when I first meet new people: Polite and well mannered. Jude loves to wag his little nub and make his whole body shake along with it. He's pleasant and happy and gets along well with dogs and people. Jude follows the routine easily, enjoys sunning himself and could care less about toys but a treat sent his way is much appreciated and he is very polite in the taking. Jude has some health problems. He has a fatty tumor on his belly which you can feel when you pick him up. He has some skin issues and occasionally gets a cortisone shot to help. He has a mature cataract in one eye and a heart murmur. Hey, it's the age thing guys. We all fall apart as we get older and dogs are no exception. Don't be intimidated by that laundry list of problems. Jude has a lot of love to give and a lot of life to live and we hope to provide that for this sweetheart of an old man.

(Read More)$200 vet care credit at the hospital associated with our rescue. Apply to foster or adopt at www.crossroadsanimalrescue.org.

It also includes microchipping as well as heartworm testing or feline leukemia testing. If you cannot adopt but would like to help, consider sponsoring a pet by donating through the "sponsor a pet" button.

This phone number will reach Crossroads Animal Hospital, which is the home of CARE. During business hours, a receptionist will be able to speak with you regarding our adoptable pets. After business hours, the only way to contact CARE is via email. Our puppies and kittens are also eligibile for 25% off the rest of the vaccines in their puppy/kitten vaccination series at Crossroads Animal Hospital. Most adult pets are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Puppies and kittens may have the surgery before adoption or we may have new owners return later for the surgery.

You can then pay the adoption fee and offiicially adopt after meeting your new family member. Alternatively, you can do the adoption over the phone before meeting your new pet. The benefit to this is that we will hold the pet for you. However, the adoption fee is non-refundable if you changed your mind after adopting over the phone. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Shih Tzu in South Carolina
    Shih Tzu Dogs can make good pets in South Carolina 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.
