     I had been looking for a few months to find the right Shih Tzu for my parents who just less than 6 months ago lost there Shih Tzu to illness. My parents did not want another breed, it had to be a Shih Tzu. They did not want to raise a puppy, as the puppy could outlive them. My search for a Shih Tzu was a long and sad road until I found Rescue Me! I immediately e-mailed the owner of Dolice, and he answered my e-mail within the hour. In the meantime I forwarded the photo of Dolice to my parents and they knew right away that she was the dog for them. I reassured the prior owner Dolice would be an only child. Yes, I did say child, as my parents will treat this dog just like a child. Dolice, you are in good hands. You will be treated like a Queen. My experience with Rescue Me! was wonderful, I just wish I had found it sooner. Thanks to Mr. Gold for adding tips to get the dog we wanted. One tip was to act fast, and glad I did act fast, as the owner had just put Dolice on this site one hour before I called. So my suggestion to new people who are looking for that perfect dog, act fast, do not wait... Thanks to all who had a part in getting this sweet baby to my parents. Teresa

     I posted Max on Rescue Me! just one week ago. Thanks to this website, I had multiple inquires and they were all great, but I had to choose only one. After many emails and phone conversations, I went with my instinct and I was right. I could not have given max to a better home. He is with his forever family with two beautiful children and a big Labradoodle named Clyde. It made my heart feel good when I left, I thought I was going to be very sad to let him go, but I walked away knowing that he is with the best.

     We drove to adopt Arggie. It was a whirlwind of a round trip in one day. He turned out to be a very sweet, personable, little guy. He has brought so much love and joy to a very empty pair of hearts. We had lost our 16-year old Shih Tzu 'Trap' some months back. When we learned of his urgent plight, we couldn't let anything, like being bounced around from homes to shelter, happen to him. We are grateful to his owner for giving us this precious little ball of joy, and to Rescue Me! for facilitating this adoption.

     After a divorce, I got the two dogs, but it was challenging to adapt them to living in an apartment building with an elevator, after they had grown up having their own room and an outdoor run. I found Rescue Me! and immediately received numerous inquiries about adoption. One response was from a nice lady who already had two Shih Tzus, slightly younger, and wanted a third for her large family. We met right away, and she and Roxi seemed to really hit it off. She has since sent me photos of the three dogs on several occasions. I really appreciated the follow-through from her. It was tough enough to separate after six years... I thank Rescue Me! for making this possible.

     I adopted Za Za this past weekend. I had been in contact with the owner for a couple of weeks. She is the sweetest little girl. Very quiet, and wants to just be in my lap. I picked her up on Saturday and had the rest of the weekend to bond with her. She sleeps in the bed with me, my other two shih tzus, and my boxer. She is a wonderful little girl and I love her so much. She became part of our family the moment I picked her up.

     Rescue Me! helped us adopt the perfect little one for us, Pharaoh. We lost our 18-year old Lab about a month ago; before that we lost his sister. Even with our cat family rescues, the house felt empty and lonely, and we missed them terribly. At first we were not going to get another dog to put ourselves through another eventual loss; and being seniors we could not consider a puppy that would outlive us, it would not be fair to the dog. So when it got too hard without a dog to love, we started looking for an older adult dog for adoption through Rescue Me! When we saw Pharaoh, who lived close to us, we contacted the owners at the time. We spoke with them and they brought this adorable eight year old little guy to us, and he immediately took to us. At first he cried and looked for his owner, but then he quickly cuddled in our laps and snuggled in bed with us. The cats took to him pretty quickly. He gets healthy food and treats and grooming, and our love and devotion. He loves to be walked and go for car rides. But most importantly, he returns our love and affection. Sincerely, Gary and Sandra Auerback

     I feel so blessed being chosen by the Johnston's to adopt not one but two little Shih Tzus. I wanted two, and it happened. I promise to do my very best in keeping them well loved, will keep a careful watch over them, and give them a loving home and plenty of space to roam!! As happy as I am, I'm saddened in the same sense that they have to leave their old home. They have been well taken care of by the Johnston's, who raised these sisters since they were babies, eight years ago. Kudos to Rescue Me!, without this service I would probably have never found Gracie and Belle!!! Blessings and good luck to all, Joe

     My three loving shih tzus were adopted by the most wonderful families! They still keep me posted about how the dogs are doing, which helps me tremendously. I consider this to be the best way I could have found to place my dogs where they can get everything I was not able to give them. It made what could have been a very difficult experience, a relatively easy and peaceful one.

     Jeff, I want to thank you for Rescue Me's Shih Tzu Rescue. I found your site shortly after I had to put down my beloved Shih Tzu. I checked out the site every time I received an email from you listing another Shih Tzu that was looking for a new home. Sussie is blind... I found that that she comes from a family who love her dearly, and they were moving out of state and could no longer keep her. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted her. Sussie's first family wanted to give her away to someone who would love her. I fell in love when I saw her picture, and the rest is history. I can't thank you enough for your love of animals and your generosity in maintaining your website. Keep up the good work.

     Thanks to Rescue Me's website we have found the very best home in the world for my mother-in-laws little angel. Benji's mom passed away suddenly and it was urgent that we find a home as soon as possible for him. Several people were interested (even as far away as Nova Scotia) but a gentleman living in northern Massachusetts just fell in love with him, and on Sunday they became best buddies. We could not have asked to find a better and more loving owner for Benji (although I'm not sure who owns who). I would encourage anyone looking to find a good home for a pet to use Rescue Me! Thank you to everyone who was interested in the little fellow.

     I placed a post on the Rescue Me! website to find a new home for my son's Shih Tzu pup. I was kind of scared and unsure about how to screen and choose a new owner for Chewy. Within a few days I had received several emails all which seemed to be wonderful candidates. To be fair, I talked to them in the order to which they responded to the post and all sounded great. I ended up finding him a wonderful home with a responsible, stable, loving older couple who also had another Shih Tzu. After meeting and visiting with them and their other dog I could tell Chewy would be very loved and very well cared for. So this story has a very, very happy ending. They also said the would keep in touch and send us pictures to let us know how Chewy was doing. Thank You Rescue Me Shih Tzu Rescue! Tammy Schultz, Las Vegas, NV

     Had several calls very quickly. Narrowed them down to three good matches. Upon further conversation and questions with the three interested, I chose one who I felt would make for the most compatible and loving situation I could ever ask for.

     I found this lovely Shih Tzu at my neighborhood park. He was abandoned and neglected, every inch of hair matted. As soon as I took him to the vet to check for a microchip (none), I posted him here, because Rescue Me! sorts by breeds. I knew someone would love this beautiful dog, and would be looking for a dog of his breed. I started receiving calls within a few days! Many wonderful people were interested, so I was able to interview for the most prepared and best situated owner for this dog's personality and needs. This site works well, is easy to use, and very helpful for both placing a dog as well as finding the type you're looking for. It even helped me narrow down his breed, by looking at photos of other dogs listed. I will be donating to this site, for the great work they do, and the help they gave me in finding a perfect home for my little stray.

We already have two little girls, aged 15 and Buddy was just too energetic for them. So a tough decision was made to let him go to someone else. A wonderful woman called us within minutes of our post and we found out we live a block apart! We walked our usual path and she and Buddy met and fell in love. She took him home for a wonderful life as the King of the Hill that only he will share the lap, the bed, the walks and lots of treats in between. Even her son sent us a message of thanks for allowing her to have Buddy. We know this adoption was meant to be and there will be lots of love shared in this new family. I cried as I passed him over and came back home to hold our beloved girls (who by the way have been napping away). Thanks to Rescue Me!, we know that Buddy will have a wonderful life!

     Within 48 hours I had two inquiries and found a wonderful home for both Baby and Bubbles. The sisters will get to stay together. The new family has already emailed to let me know they are adjusting just fine. Thank you so much for helping me find a good home.

     We had a very special needs Shih tzu that was born blind. We had tried several options to locate a home for him, but the perfect match was made through RescueMe.Org. As a result of the posting, a family that had lost their little dog recently has adopted Stevie to fill the void in their life. Based on their phone call, we decided to meet on Christmas Eve to let them decide if Stevie was the right one for them. Stevie immediately started cuddling and kissing his new owner. Stevie will be well cared for and will provide the family a lot of love. Watching the family with our special little dog was heartwarming, and the hugs all around made for a great Christmas present for ALL of us. Thank you, RESCUE ME for providing a great service!

     OMG... I've had four people contact me about Rags after seeing him on Rescue Me! He was a puppy mill rescue, been thru heck, at our shelter for 9 months. He was only on www.RescueMe.Org for a few days when I started getting people who were interested in adopting him. This is a great website for adoptions. I'm sure my dogs who have been adopted are very grateful and happy. Thanks so much! Linda

     Dear Jeff, We have had our shih-tzu Kanji for 4 1/2 years. Over that time we have moved and had two children. Kanji is an amazing dog and such a lover. I posted him on www.RescueMe.Org on Wednesday evening and within 20 minutes received a phone call from Craig. Craig and Renee sounded too good to be true and promised to love my Kanji. They came over with their children to meet Kanji and were in love with him immediately. I am so glad that I was directed to your site to find a new home for my little man. I wanted him to go to a home that will love him. I am glad the I didn't use Craigslist or any other method. I do not think the outcome would have been the same. I am very blessed to have had Kanji in my life and I hope that he brings pleasure to the family that took him! Thank you Rescue Me! and Jeff for having such a wonderful site to post our precious babies and rescue the ones that are in need! Neil and Jessica White

     I received lots of responses for my post about rehoming my dog. Ultimately, I was able to place Jessie in a home with 2 people who have a lot more time and energy to give to a rambunctious young dog than I did. I miss her a lot, but I think her new home will provide her with everything she needs to be a content, healthy dog.

     I would like to thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to post Penny on your rescue site. I was contacted by several very nice people, all willing and able to offer her what I am sure would have been a wonderful home. Although it was a difficult decision, Penny was placed a few days ago in a great home to a loving woman who seems to be enjoying her immensely. I have high hopes that it will all work out and it will be a perfect match for them both. I appreciate hearing from all of the people that contacted me, and were so willing to adopt Penny. I wish them all success in finding another Shih Tzu to love.

     We rescued Bozo for the sole purpose of finding him a forever home. After we got his training and medical care taken care of he was ready. We posted Bozo on rescue me and within 3 weeks we had a wonderful family from out of state that contacted us, they had just had their dog put down for cancer. After checking their vet reference and communicating back and forth to get to know them, I finally felt comfortable enough to let them adopt him. We both decided to meet half way since there was 5 hours separating us. When we met the family Bozo acted like he had always known them! There was an immediate connection. I know in my heart that was his family, the right family. Since he was adopted his new family drops me an email from time to time and updates me on his progress. He is doing great. Craigslist was a nightmare, too many dog flippers. Rescue Me is the place to go if you want good quality prospective adopters!! Thank you!!

     I want to thank Linda and her friends in Tucson. They helped me keep my dog. I have had Buddy for at least 6 to 7 years. I told them what my situation was and they were able to help me keep Buddy. They understood what I was going through and I expressed how I did not want to give him up. I really appreciate this team for everything they have done for me. Now Buddy is a happier dog who is not in any pain anymore. So once again Buddy and I want to say thank you and we really appreciate everything that was done to keep us together!!!!!!

     We were loooking for the right home for our little rescue guy. Someone from Montana emailed us after seeing him on Rescue Me & asked if there was any way to get him to Montana. Would you believe we happened to be going to the same town in Montana she was from in a couple of weeks as that is where we have a summer home. The people that are adopting him are exactly what we were looking for. Thanks Rescue ME!

     Shirlee Mae was adopted by a shi tzu rescue person in Olympia, WA. Chanele, who has an 8 yr. old son and alpacas on 1,000 acres.They came to meet us in Portland, Oregon (we drove about 4 hrs. from the tri-cities) to meet Shirlee and take her home to her new home. Shirlee Mae hopped right in the back seat with her new boy and smelled around to see if something was good to eat. Later I got a call that Shirlee Mae had a bath and didn't particularly care for her new smell, so went out and rolled in the dirt. She was getting along well w. the others and it was reported she was one of the best behaved rescues they had. Shirlee Mae is a very spiritual schi tzu who I rescued from Joplin during the tornado week of 2011 (she had been surrendered) on the day she was to be euthanized at the shelter. She had not been eating. So her story shows that love conquers all, and that love is contagious, if we allow it to be,and can fill our lives to the very end. I will always love Shirlee Mae and am so thankful that she was able to find a home due to your service, when it seemed that this would be an impossibility for an 11 yr. old. Sincerely, Ann

     Rescue Me got instant interest in finding a home for Phoebe. We only posted both she and her mate Picasso this past Saturday and they both have received four inquiries. Now, they have a new family. Bittersweet, but a needed solution. Thanks to all that support Rescue Me and thanks for caring our extended family members. Pam & John
