Rescue Me ID: 17-10-19-00052Ivan (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Puppy


    Ivan is the friendliest boy! He loves everyone he meets and he wants to play with every animal he comes across. He currently plays the day away with lots of other foster dogs so another dog in the home would be ideal. Ivan is currently about 10wks old and weighs approx 8lbs. We expect him to be about 15lbs when full grown. With just a little more help, he will be fully house and crate trained. He's learning to walk on a leash, too. Ivan is very social so an active home with a couple of school age children would be ideal. Because of his young age, he should not be left alone for more than 4-5hr intervals. The 485. Adoption fee ... (Read More)includes all 5 first year vaccines, deworming series, microchip and neuter surgery. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-10-03-00540Sunshine (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    YES, I'M AVAILABLE! Adoption application at www.aberdeenstr.com ***MUST SUBMIT APP before we will respond to email or phone inquiries. Thanks for your cooperation!*** Sunshine is a sweet little man with a sad story. Sunshine was dropped off at a sister vet that our rescue works with because his mum said she did not want a one eyed dog. Extremely sad! He was transferred to our vets and the amazing staff operated on his eye three times to resolve complications with his eye removal. Sunshine is 7 year old Shih Tzu who is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations and microchipped. He has just had a dental cleaning and he came into our rescue ... (Read More)missing a couple of teeth. Sunshine is the sweetest, most loving little soul. He was at the vets for almost 10 months until they asked us to find him a wonderful loving home and that's what we are going to do. Sunshine can only go to a home where people and another dog are always present. All of our rescue dogs will need work on house training and obedience training. Please only submit an application if you are committed to working with a rescue dog. We have no idea if he has been around children but does he like cats. Sunshine has the adoption fee of $500. __________________________ **IMPORTANT DETAILS - PLEASE READ** An application must be filled out before consideration for adoption. Please do not apply for a dog until you are ready to commit a lifetime to him/her. We are an all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit group of animal lovers. Our adoption fee is non-negotiable as we need these funds to pay our current medical bills for our dogs as well as any future dogs we rescue as well. As an adopter, you must be prepared to accept the fact that these dogs are rescues and, just like you and I, they all have their own individual personalities. In most cases, these little ones have been through a difficult journey that started when their family gave them up or they became lost. They may have been under stress, neglected or even abused in their past life or frightened by being left alone on the streets to fend for themselves. Our number one focus is finding these little loves a wonderful forever home with a family who is going to care for them and show them what it is like to be loved in a safe environment with a full belly and a warm bed. These sweet babies do not ask for much from you but they may require a little patience and understanding. WE ARE NOT A SHELTER, WE ARE AN ALL VOLUNTEER RESCUE WITH FULL-TIME JOBS. Please do not contact us to come look at a dog. We will contact you once we have received and reviewed your completed application. A home visit as well as a reference check MUST be completed before a meet & greet can be scheduled. Thank you for your patience and cooperation. (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Huck is a very sweet boy looking for his forever home. He is very loyal and would love nothing more than to have his person by his side. He LOVES to go on walks, play with toys, and snuggle up on the couch for an afternoon nap. Huck is lookng for the right person. He has some issues with anxiety and can be a bit protective about his home and his people. (Which I would be too if I had been passed around and never really had a home of my own) He has never bitten anyone, its just barking and some growling and snapping for show. Then once he knows there are no threats he loves everyone. Just takes him a little time to warm up. He would do best ... (Read More)in a quiet household with someone who is home more than away, as he gets a bit anxious in a crate. He is so sweet, and just really needs someone to love and accept him. Are you that special person willing to give this boy a chance at a good life? (Less)

Animal ID: SmokeySmokey (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered 

    Bonded with Flora, must be adopted together. YES, I'M AVAILABLE! Adoption application at www.aberdeenstr.com ***MUST SUBMIT APP before we will respond to email or phone inquiries. Thanks for your cooperation!****** Smokey is a sweet, small 11.2lb terrier. This little guy is only a year, so young to be in the high kill shelter we found him in where his time had run out. When we got him out, he had such severe pneumonia he spent a little over two weeks at our vet. He was treated with different types of medications, daily breathing treatments, and he was also given x-rays to check the progress of his health. When we got him out, we also ... (Read More)noticed on his cheek an abscess that the shelter had said they had taken care of, but our vet said it was oozing puss, so they needed to go back in and re-drain it. A dog such as Smokey will need to be very well taken care of for a few months because pneumonia doesn't fully leave their body for two months. He also cannot undergo anesthesia for 6 months no matter what the reason, unless it is to save their life. If they do, it can trigger pneumonia again. Smokey is such a cute boy. He is a young dog, full of life, love, and energy. He loves snuggling and hanging out by your side, he loves other dogs, and he is not a huge barker. We would like Smokey and Flora to be adopted together, they came from the same shelter, we got them out at the same time, and they might have come from the same home. They are being fostered in the same home and we really love seeing the love between the two of them! They would also do best if people were home during the day. Like most dogs in our rescue, Smokey will need work on potty training. Smokey has an adoption fee of $550 __________________________ **IMPORTANT DETAILS - PLEASE READ** An application must be filled out before consideration for adoption.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-04-00517Molly (female)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    YES, I'M AVAILABLE! Adoption application at www.aberdeenstr.com ***MUST SUBMIT APP before we will respond to email or phone inquiries. Thanks for your cooperation!****** Molly was sitting in an extremely high kill shelter and noone was coming for her, so we helped her and got her out. Molly is an adorable and super loving 7 year old shih tzu mix. Someone clearly loved this little girl a lot so we do not understand why she was in the shelter to begin with! Sadly she had to be shaved down due to mats, all the way to her skin, but she just got groomed and will grow her hair back with time. She loves being around people and she also loves ... (Read More)being around other dogs! She follows her foster mom around, and she is so sad that Molly is leaving. She is just the sweetest, most loving, affectionate dog! All she loves to do is eat, love, snuggle and be loved on. The only time she really barks is if the other dogs are being fed, she barks as if to say 'Where's my food?!' She loves being around people and she also loves being around other dogs! Molly should go to a home where people are present during the day and also where there is another dog for her to play with. Like most dogs in our rescue, Molly will need work on potty training.

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