Rescue Me ID: 14-04-24-00590Coco A'Zachary (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    THIS IS NOT A FUZZY DOG RESCUE DOG. There is an adoption process, including an adoption application, home visit, and adoption fee. Coco A'Zachary is about 5 years old and weighs 19 lbs. He has had a confusing life. When his first person became very ill, he was surrendered to a local shelter. It was noisy and scary there, so CocoZ became fearful of strangers and new situations. He was adopted and everyone thought he had truly found his forever home. Unfortunately, his happily ever after only lasted a few months. When his person moved to a new home, he was not part of her plans. Instead, CocoZ was sent to a rescue. The little fellow was ... (Read More)extremely scared again and now did not trust people. He is absolutely adorable, spunky, and very sweet. Luckily, he has been placed in a wonderful foster home where they understand his fear of abandonment and are very patient with him. It has taken time, but CocoZ is learning to trust people again. His favorite things are his walks, sleeping with his foster mom, and getting treats. He is trusting enough that he will even give his people kisses now. CocoZ likes adults and teenagers. He cannot be placed in a home with young children. His ideal person will be very patient with him and aware of his special needs. While he gets along with small submissive dogs, CocoZ would probably do best as an only pet. This little fellow knows his basic commands and is housetrained. Since he is not destructive, CocoZ has never needed to be crated. His adoption fee includes neuter. He is looking for a new lap to sit on and someone to give him belly rubs. Can you provide this cute fellow a home where he is loved and understood? He will be your most loyal best friend ever and love you with his whole heart. If you are interested in adopting CocoZ, copy this link:, complete the dog adoption questionnaire, and email it to (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.
