Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Mickey is about 12 years old and about 10 lbs. He's as sweet and calm as you'd want. His only problem is he's going blind with cataracts. He gets around fine after he learns the house. He's well house broken and is just a sweet old guy. My sister recently passed away and I can't keep him. I want so much for him to go to a good and loving home or senior-type foster. I will want to vet any home or foster he goes to.

    Pardon my hair, humidity and breeding are not my friends! We girls and our hair! I cannot remember the last time I wasn't full of mats and gunk. You see, my last home, well, I was used to produce puppies. That's all. No baths, no pampering, no spa. I knew there was more to life. Fast forward to last week, and my foster mama has been pampering me and showing me love. It feels so nice and I hope it isn't a dream. I know I am shy, and have a few trust issues. I want to be loved and give love back, but, I'm not sure how, and I'm hesitant. Hesitant because I don't want to be discarded again. I'm about 6 years old and a schnauzer/shih ... (Read More)tzu mix. I am crate trained and am working on my indoor manners. Right now I like to just hang in my crate as it is safe to me. I may require a bit of patience at first, but, I know I will blossom. I'm available for pre-adoption at this time. Contact misfitsrescue@yahoo.com for more information. Adoption Fee: $150 (Less)

    My name is Brewster and I am one fun little guy! My foster mom and the groomers think that I'm a Dachshund/Shih Tzu mix, would that be a DachTzu? A Shih-Shund? How about FUN, can fun be a category at the National Dog Shows? I weigh about 10 pounds and I am three years old so I won't get any bigger...unless I eat too many treats! I am neutered, current on vaccines, and heartworm negative! I have even been started on heartworm prevention and flea/tick preventative too! No icky bugs on me!!

Cats might be okay if they are nice to me, if they are hissy and meow mean things I might bark at them. WE ARE IN ABILENE, TEXAS. WE DO NOT SHIP OR TRANSPORT OUR PETS, WE REQUIRE ADOPTERS MEET THE DOG TO MAKE SURE IT IS A GOOD FIT. NOTE: We are a rescue, the dogs are in foster homes. WE DO NOT HAVE A FACILITY THAT OPENS TO THE PUBLIC. We require an application BEFORE a potential adopter will be introduced to one of our pets. We contact vets to ensure that pets already in the adoptive home are current on vaccines, heartworm prevention and sterilized. We have gotten to know the pet and our goal is to make the best match, between pet and people. PLEASE be aware, we do not adopt out to a home that has an animal which has not been spayed or neutered. Please email us at adopt@pawedsquad.com to receive an Adoption Application or for more information on our Adoption process. Please take the time to visit our website www.pawedsquad.com for additional information. We represent the pet to the best of our ability, they are rescue dogs and we don't always get their history.

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Toby! Toby was found as a stray in Del Rio, TX. Toby is available for adoption in Del Rio, San Antonio, and anywhere in between. We think he could be a Shih Tzu/ Chihuahua mix. He is about 10 pounds and 1-2 years old. He is fully vetted (neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, up to date on flea/tick and heartworm preventatives). Toby is a super sweet dog who loves people. He is medium energy- he can get extremely excited, but he also enjoys laying around and relaxing. Toby has some separation anxiety, so he would do best in a home where someone is home a good bit. Toby does well with most other dogs. He does better with calmer dogs who ... (Read More)play gently. Because of his small size, he is intimidated by larger/rough-playing dogs. Toby is being fostered with two other dogs (20 and 30 pounds). He would also be fine as an only dog- he loves people more than anything. Toby has not been cat tested. Like many tiny dogs, Toby has been know to bite if he feels threatened. For this reason, we will not place him in a home with small children. This is for the safety of Toby and the children. Toby does not appreciate rough handling. No children under 10 please. ***PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ADOPTION STIPULATIONS BEFORE CONTACTING ME*** Adoption Stipulations: - No young children. Ages 10+ only. - If you rent your home, you must be able to provide proof that you are allowed to have a dog. - If your family already has pets, they must be fully vetted (spayed/neutered, vaccinated, etc.), and you must be able to provide proof. - We require a home visit, and all family members must be present during the home visit.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-02-00527ROCKY (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rocky has a bite history; we rescued him from a kill shelter. He was surrendered because he bit a child (which we just recently found out about). While in the shelter - he bit a shelter worker and was placed in quarantine for 10 days. He did fine. He was happy and playful. When we got him to our house - he was also happy and playful - got along with the other dogs and was doing great. After being here for about a week or two - he got into a scuffle with an 80-pound hound dog. Rocky's eye was injured and had to be removed. He healed and was adopted and for reasons unknown - he bit that adopter and he was returned to us. We spoke to a ... (Read More)trainer and she believed it was because that adopter approached Rocky from his blind side. We had him back here for about a week and at one point - I was rounding up all the dogs and putting them in their crates for naptime - Rocky was eating but I thought he was finished so I approached him to pick him up to put him in his crate. He bit me. We again spoke with a trainer. She believed my bite was due to resource guarding (food). We had him another week or so. He did great. Content - good-natured - sweet... Again, he was adopted along with another of our dogs; those adopters had Rocky about a month. Again - for reasons unknown - he bit and was returned - the two times he bit an adopter they both reported they were just hanging out with Rocky - either on a couch or in bed watching TV - relaxing. They were petting him. He bit. We are again working with a trainer to determine what it is that causes this. 99% of the time - he is great. We're not sure if he just gets overwhelmed at too much petting or if there's a part of his body that - when touched - causes him pain or sensitivity - we're not exactly sure at this point - he's been groomed several times and has done fine - he's also been checked by a vet so we rather doubt the latter. He goes to our adoption events. People walk him and interact with him. there have been no issues but again - we are providing this information about him in the spirit of full disclosure - if you are interested in him - we can talk further and or you can come meet him - we believe that with some training to find out his trigger points - he will be just fine. He's playful, devoted, intelligent, assertive, friendly, energetic, protective and spirited, he's about 3 years old and weighs about 11 lbs, he's fully vetted and healthy, he's not much of a barker unless he's playing, or upset about something - we don't recommend him being adopted into a family with children younger than 11 - he's HW- (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Hi, my name is Buddy. My time was up when I was rescued. I had been at the shelter for almost four months! My foster mom thought I was young and playful when she saved me, but my story is actually a little different. I am a scruffy old guy! I think I'm about 10, but given the right home I have lots left to give. Like most old guys you may know I am a little hard of hearing and don't see very well. Apparently they don't make doggie dentures, so the bottom teeth I have missing can't really be replaced. My foster mom soaks some dry food in water and adds in some wet food and I can eat it up just fine. My favorite thing to do is find the most ... (Read More)comfortable napping spot in the house and stay out of trouble. I am mostly potty trained as long as you catch my attention (hard of hearing and seeing, remember?), and foster mom crates me at night. I like having my own space at. I get along with dogs and cats as long as they aren't too rough or overbearing with me. My ideal home is going to be with adults, people who are going to handle me with care. As it turns out, hip pain come with old age too. If you have a lazy cat or another oldie like me, I think you will be my perfect family! (Less)

    'ۢ We have LOTS of precious fur babies available for adoption, please come meet them at the Addison PetSmart - 3800 Belt Line, Addison, TX 75001 - every Saturday and Sunday from 1-6. Our adoption fees include a grooming with nail trim - all vaccines - deworming - a complete health check - a HW test if old enough - microchip - rabies - spay/neuter - and a PetSmart adoption starter kit that includes $5 off a six-month supply of HW preventative - a free %BD-hour private training session with a PetSmart accredited pet trainer - a free bag of food - a free doggie day camp session - a free overnight stay in a PetSmart PetsHotel - a free vet ... (Read More)exam at Banfield - grooming coupons - over $400 of coupons/savings - and MUCH MORE! We have a two-step adoption process. First, you submit an application, which is presented to our Board for approval or rejection. If approved, a home check is done, and if that passes - you adopt which includes a 1-week trial period, if - for any reason during that first week, the adoption is not working out, you can return the dog for a full refund of your adoption fee. ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))PS - WE NEED FOSTER HOMES FOR ANIMALS! Fosters are the backbone of animal rescue. In most EVERY shelter - in most EVERY county - in most EVERY city - animals r being euthanized (KILLED) daily due to overcrowding - dog - cat - large - small - male - female - puppy - kitten - old - young. We cannot save them without foster homes. APPROXIMATELY ONE OUT OF THREE ANIMALS THAT ENTER A SHELTER IS EUTHANIZED. These healthy sweet pets would have made great companions. Don't know what fostering is? Briefly - it is babysitting an animal until it is adopted. FOSTERING IS FREE TO DO! Most rescues cover all expenses for fosters, and anything they do not cover is tax-deductible. If u cannot foster - please ask your friends and family to. If u want more information - Google 'animal fostering.' I'm begging - it's only temporary but lives can't be saved unless people step up - PLEASE - shelters are overflowing - when you foster one animal - you save two lives - the one you foster and the one that gets his/her space in the shelter. If you can/will foster - let me know, I thank you - and the animals thank you! PS - Have you ever dreamed of helping a rescue but don't have the time, space, or just plain don't know what to do? At your pet limit? Allergic? Can't have pets where you live? Well - how about becoming a VIRTUAL FOSTER... You can choose a minimum amount of $10 a month to 'virtually' foster a homeless animal of your choice (of course, a larger sum would be happily accepted and appreciated). What does Virtual Foster mean? Our foster fur babies typically have many veterinary bills, as this is the nature of being rescued. There are also other expenses related to the ongoing care and rehab of fosters. As a Virtual Foster, your donation will go towards the vetting - medical care, and general care of the animal you have chosen. Your donation will go a LONG way in ensuring a foster dog receives the needed care and attention! In return for your kind donation, you will receive a periodic update on the progress of your foster. Once your foster is adopted, you will be notified so that you can choose another animal to virtually foster. If you genuinely cannot adopt or foster, there are still other ways to help. Sponsor an adoption or medical treatment. Volunteer your time - drive for transports, rescue groups always need dogs transported from one place to the next.

Health: Spayed 

    Hi, my name is Diamond and I have been told that I am adorable and very sweet. I bet you will think so too if you come to meet me. I am a pretty typical puppy and my favorite thing is to play and wrestle all day. I am a little timid when I first meet new people but it doesn't take me very long to warm up and give kisses. And I LOVE to cuddle!! I am doing pretty good with my potty training but I am not perfect at it because I still have accidents if I am busy playing and forget. I think that is where the love and patience thing comes in. Diamond is available for adoption with Saving Grace Dog Rescue of San Antonio. The adoption fee is ... (Read More)$150.00. An adoption application, home visit and adoption contract are all required. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations appropriate for their age, microchipped, and wormed for internal and external parasites.

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    JoJo is a 2 year old female Shih Tzu Mix . She came to us from Harris County Animal Shelter after her owners surrendered her because of a move. She is extremely shy, fearful of large dogs pretty unsocialized to people and most animals. But now being in here for a little over a week she is starting to develop a cute playful personality. She doesn't always come to you when you call her, but is becoming more confident and that seems to be happening less and less. When a big dog approaches her she yelps as if she is being attacked. She loves playing with dogs her size and will chase and roughhouse with them for hours. She loves sleeping with you ... (Read More)and sitting in your lap. She is loving the attention and interacting with a family. Not sure if she is house trained but does seem to be crate trained as we have had her a short time and she is very nervous at times and has had several accidents. But is crate trained. She is HW negative, had rabies, bordatella, parvo/distemper booster, on heartworm prevention and flea prevention. She was spayed and microchipped. JoJo would be best in a home of a family with out small children and without large dogs. She is about 6 lbs and does really well with dogs around that size. If you are interested in making Jojo part of your family please follow the instructions below: The adoption fee is $200.

    Pez is a sweet as candy and twice as fun! This little Pez is a tiny terrier with tons of personality! He is always happy and bouncy! Pez gets along with other dogs his size, and loves people!

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

lnteresting Shih Tzu Trivia Low-Cost Texas Spay & Neuter Clinics
    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.
