Rescue Me ID: 14-07-23-00106Snickers Falls Church (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

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

    Snickers is a male Shih Tzu about 3 years old and 9.5 pounds. This cutie is completely house trained and very motivated to learn. A patient adult family would be perfect! I LOVE: My foster parents, going for walks on a leash, riding in the car, and sitting on a lap (when invited). I'm also friendly with other dogs. I THINK: I welcome strangers but am a bit fearful of them touching me. My foster parents are working with me on this but I need some more training (remember, I'm a motivated student). MY MATCH: Someone patient and experienced. My forever home must commit to a minimum of 2 positive training sessions and keep working with ... (Read More)me to lose my fear of strangers. NOPE: I'm not a good match for a home with children because of my fear of strangers. MY HISTORY: I was neglected in my first year. You'll hear all about me in a telephone interview. ADOPTION FEE: The fee will actually be applied towards paying the positive dog trainer. (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

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

    Very loving dog. He is great with other dogs, cats, and farm animals. Our issue with him is that if he is not leashed, he will run away. He ultimately comes home, but it creates a problem. He needs a good home with a fenced yard.

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Blind,
 Seizures 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Pepper is a very sweet, 13 year old pure bread Shih Tzu. She has cataracts which have left her blind (for the most part), and she is on medicines daily for seizures. Pepper is trained to 'potty pads' (she is an indoor dog). The only reason we are looking for a home for her is that she belongs to my elderly mother, who is moving to a senior living facility and cannot take her with her. (She has two Shih-tzus and is only allowed to take one of them with her...she is on a fixed income and can no longer afford Pepper's medicines.) I already have three animals of my own and cannot take on any additional pets. ... (Read More)The veterinarian suggested putting her down, but she is very loving and we don't feel like she is quite ready for that option...we cannot bear to do that, but are quickly running out of options. If anyone can give her a happy forever home to live her life out with comfort and love, it would be wonderful! (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Cocoa is a very sweet little girl who needs a new, calm home. She just turned 7 years old. She is house trained and up to date on all shots. Cocoa weighs just over 10 pounds. She is missing some teeth and requires annual dental cleanings to keep her mouth healthy but is otherwise in good health. Cocoa doesn't mind other dogs but is easily overwhelmed by very active dogs and children. She would do best in a calm home with adults. She likes to go in the car and loves her crate so she would travel well with someone. She is also micro-chipped. In lieu of an adoption fee we will request a $100 donation to an animal rescue organization. Please ... (Read More)contact us for more information. Email contacts preferred. (Less)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

     Meet Lady! She is a gorgeous 3 year old female shih tzu and faithful companion. Lady was given up to rescue when her people moved. Lady is a quiet, sweet, and somewhat independent girl as she does not have to be attached to your side at all times. She even sleeps in her own bed like a big girl. However she does enjoy the company of her person and would do best in a home where she will not be left alone for long hours. She likes to hear the squeak of her squeaky toys and often carries them around with her. Lady loves to go for walks and rides in the car. She gets along well with other dogs. If you are interested in Lady, please complete the ... (Read More)adoption application http://fs8.formsite.com/Caringhearts/form3/index.html. (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.

    Shih-Tzu means Lion Dog in Mandarin. Shih-Tzus are descended from Lhasa Apsos bred with Pekingese. Shih-Tzus were popular with Chinese royalty. Chinese did not allow Shih-Tzus out of the country until the 1930s.
