Rescue Me ID: 17-09-30-00277Trini (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    My name is Trini and I'm a 5-year-old Shih-Tzu mix and weigh about 10lbs. I'm a little shy when you first meet me, but I'm quickly learning to trust people and LOVE to cuddle and give kisses once I have time to warm up. I'm a very calm and quiet girl who prefers my house to be calm and quiet as well, so older dogs and older children are my preference! I'm 100% potty trained, which means no accidents in the house for me - plus, I'm not destructive, so I don't chew anything up! I would be perfect in an apartment - I like to just lounge around and hang out with my people. So let me know if you're looking for a calm and loyal pup that will look ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-10-00077Louie (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Louie is a 19 pound, 3 year old mix breed dog that resembles a cross between a Border Terrier and Shih Tzu. He was brought to our organization by a neighbor, because he was being serverly abused by the male owner and his daughter. After a complete work up, it was found he had a 'cherry eye' from being hit, heartworm positive and completely withdrawn from life. His eyes did not reflect anything but a hopeless stare. He has now been with us since the 11th of August. He has been heartworm treated and his eye is healing. He still has a very aloof attitude and ducks every time you pet him. He is however, starting to interact with people and ... (Read More)dogs more. He acts excited to see you in the morning and when you come home. But he does not trust enough to come when called yet. He is grumpy when the other dogs get in his face, but does not attack them. In all other ways, he is a great dog. He will lay at your feet while you watch tv and will follow you around outside. He is totally housebroken. Has difficulty walking on a leash, but suspect by his behavior, may have been kept tied up. He has never exhibited any aggression toward people, but would not recommend children, know his story. He has no interest in cats. He mostly just wants a quiet, laid back place to be safe and free from pain. Louie is up to date with all shots, microchippped, and neutered. If interested, please submit an application from poquitapawsrescue.org. His adoption fee is $200. (Less)

    My name is Brewster and I am one fun little guy! My foster mom and the groomers think that I'm a Maltese/Shih Tzu mix. How about FUN, can fun be a category at the National Dog Shows?

I have even been started on heartworm prevention and flea/tick preventative too! No icky bugs on me!!

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-01-00429Buddy (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Senior

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

    He is a senior weighing in at about 12lbs and we think he is some sort of Shih Tzu/Chihuahua mix. The transformation this dog has shown over the almost year we have had him is unbelievable. While he likes his space he also loves to cuddle, he loves to go to the dog park and roam around, likes to go on short walks, and he prefers dogs that are about his size. He is current in our home with two 22lb terrier mixes, a 65lb pibble mix, and an 11lb cat. They coexist peacefully. He had no issues adjusting to having an infant brought into the home, though we don't recommend him going to a home with young children. He is housebroken, on a wet food ... (Read More)only diet because he is missing a lot of teeth, and takes a fairly inexpensive medication daily to help with joint pain. He may be older, but we believe he has a lot of life left in him and will make a great companion to someone. (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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. If you would like more information or an adoption application, please email us at sgdrsa@outlook.com. Please note that visual breed identification in rescue dogs is unreliable so for most of our dogs we are only GUESSING at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label. (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    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! He is so happy you would think he is smiling all the time! Just look at that grin! Pez is about 2-3 years old, neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, micro-chipped, and ready for a home of his own! He only weighs 4-5 pounds so he needs to be an indoor dog. We do not have a facility that opens to the public, our pets are in foster homes so that we can get to know them. We meet by appointment. See our website for more pictures and info at ...

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.
