Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    I am looking for a rescue home for a 12 lb, 8 year old (approximately) Shih Tzu mix named Ollie. My elderly mother adopted him last year from the Humane Society in Longview, WA. He has been a wonderful companion for her, but she has moved in with my sister and her 3 young children and Ollie is not fairing well at all there. While normally a very mellow and easy going fella, he has been snarling, baring teeth and nipping at the toddlers over the last several weeks. We were all hoping that, given some time, Ollie would adjust to a more chaotic household. Alas, the situation is getting worse rather than better We are loathe to send him to ... (Read More)another shelter - he was anxious and cowering and having an awful time when my mother rescued him from a shelter last year. He will make a loving companion for a retired person who is home frequently, can give him a reliable daily schedule and is looking for a sweet, docile friend (as long as there are no small children around). He is fully house trained, loves car rides and short outings (he tires easily), and thinks chicken breast cooked in coconut oil is the best treat possible. Thanks in advance. :) (Less)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Popcorn is a feisty, one-eyed, female Pekingnese/Shitzu mix. She was abandoned by her owner due to an abrupt move and cannot be kept by the current caretakers due to her incompatibility with the three larger dogs in the home. She is loving when attention is given to her but grumpy when around other dogs.

Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Molly is a 7 1/2 year old Black and White Shih Tsu I bought for my mom when Molly was 2 1/2 years old. Mom was 86 and needed a buddy. Mom spoiled Molly but now had to be moved to my brother's ranch in Oregon. Mom has dementia and is in a walker and can no longer take care of her. The caregiver doesn't allow dogs. Molly needs somebody who will spoil her. She is so sweet and submissive. I do not have the time to spoil her and travel between two homes. I do not think Molly is happy with us as I think she misses mom. She does not like to be left at home. I am a very busy person. She is as cute as a bug in a rug and likes to be constantly with a ... (Read More)human. I can not provide her the kind of companionship she needs. She is current on all shots ( two months ago, even Kennel and heart worm/worm. We have had teeth pulled over the years which is common for these dogs. She has a good appetite. She loves green beans and cooked food like chicken and will eat Canned Nutromax food. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Hi! My name is Princess, and I am a six year old female Shih Tzu. I came to Valhalla Canine Rescue from the Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Forks. The folks at Valhalla are pretty sure I had it rough at OAS, and everyone says I deserve to have a great home of my own - could that be with you? I am a great dog - I love going for walks, and love affection. I would do best with someone who is home a lot, so they can spend a lot of time with me. I would probably be happiest being the only pet in the house, but may do well with another small, male dog. If you want to meet me, visit the Valhalla Canine Rescue website at - once ...

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.
