    I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs. Sully's Story... Sully is a purebred shih-tzu who was used for breeding.

    THIS IS NOT A FUZZY DOG RESCUE DOG. There is an adoption application, home visit, and adoption fee. Muffin is an adorable, little gal who was running in traffic. She was almost hit by a car. Luckily, the driver of the car stopped, picked her up, and brought her to rescue. Muffin is about 1 year old and weighs 12 lbs. She is a happy, outgoing girl who likes people and is good with other dogs and cats. Muffin has a couple of quirks - she does not like getting her ears cleaned and will air snap when she feels uncomfortable. Since we do not know her background, she will probably need a refresher training in house manners and obedience. If ...

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. We would love a new foster for this cutie too! If you can't adopt consider fostering.

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.
