    THIS IS NOT A FUZZY DOG RESCUE DOG. There is an adoption process, including an adoption application, home visit, and adoption fee. Poor Veronica and about 100 other dogs have been rescued from a puppy mill that was recently shut down. Her previous life consisted of being locked up in a tiny, metal cage having numerous litters of puppies. Veronica has seen very little love or comfort throughout her years. She is about 10 years old and weighs 10 lbs. While Veronica has an infection due to her harsh living conditions, she is on antibiotics and should fully recover. Her teeth will have a thorough cleaning and many teeth will be removed. ... (Read More)Once the pain in her mouth is gone, she should be able to eat normally again. Due to her age, Veronica would do best in an adult-only home. Since she has always lived outdoors, Veronica is learning house manners and leash walking. She will revel in the joys that loving hugs, a warm bed, and good food bring. But she needs a patient, understanding person or couple to help her learn all those things. Are you the special person who will love and care for Veronica throughout her golden years? She will be forever grateful. Please apply to adopt Veronica today. (Less)

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