Rescue Me ID: 14-10-18-00197Eddie (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Eddie! Breed:Lhasa apso/Shih tzu Gender: Male Adoption Fee: $225 Date into Rescue: 5/10/2013 Reason for being in rescue: Eddie was adopted out of the Greenville shelter, and then returned later for resource guarding his new 'mom' Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Yes - Please see below Weight: Est 23 lbs Height: Est 15 ' What is my personality like? Eddie is a special dog, who has some very particular requirements. First off, you must be female - no exceptions - and you must live alone! He has been returned twice for resource guarding his beloved 'mom.' We have not been able to ... (Read More)correct this behavior, so now we must find him a home that will simply keep him out of situations where he can be reactive. Eddie favors women much more than men, and we believe that he would not do well in a home with a male. He bonds very closely to his human, and does not want any other person or animal coming her way. Eddie is crate trained and house trained, as well as leash trained and rides great in a car. He gets along with other dogs for the most part, but must be in an 'only dog' home. At first he did not like to be groomed - but after being with us for almost 2 years now, he has learned to accept it, which is excellent progress! He is very intelligent, and very loyal! Eddie would make a wonderful companion, to the right person. If history remains true, he does not bite or show any aggression to his 'chosen human.' He does not bite or show aggression to several of his caregivers, although there are a few he does not particularly like. He does have a bite history, however has never landed anyone in the care of a doctor. There is a good chance that Eddie will remain with us for the rest of his life, if the right person does not come along. We will continue to work with him no matter what. He really is a happy camper here, but we all know he would much rather be in a home. Age: Est 5 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! Please note - we do not ship dogs.

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Fritz is a lively, 16-lb., 2-year-old terrier mix who loves squeaky toys and snuggling in his human's lap. He gets along with most other dogs, but can be a little bossy with some. Fritz may have suffered some abuse in his past, so he's a little suspicious and fearful of new people. Once he's comfortable with you, though, he's very submissive and loving. He's not a dog for first-time dog owners. We would like to place him in an adult-only home or one with older teens who are comfortable around dogs and know how to read them. A fenced yard is also preferred, since he's a little nervous on leash. Fritz is well house trained and kennels up in ... (Read More)his crate on command. If you can give Fritz the firm but loving home he needs, download our application at www.savethestrays.org and apply today. During October, Fritz's adoption fee is just $60. More questions?

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.

    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. Shih-Tzus were popular with Chinese royalty.
