Lucy's Story...
Desi and Lucy are a bonded pair - totally devoted to each other, about ten years old, but they certainly don't act it.
In mid-October these two shih tzus, Desi and Lucy, were turned into a NYC shelter together. Desi had a huge tumor that needed to be removed, and both needed to be spayed and have their teeth done. Just a week after they were pulled by Saving Paws Rescue Lucy had an appointment to be spayed and Desi had an appointment on Oct. 29 at Animal Specialty Center to have the tumor removed.
Now Desi is tumor free and she sure is happy to be free of that big tumor she had been lugging around. Both are loving life as they play with each other in our big fenced yard and get tons of love and snuggles from their foster mom. Both have had their teeth done and Desi was spayed (Lucy was spayed earlier). Now they are as good as new and looking for a new forever home together.
They will bring delight to their new home. Will you give them their very own home?
If you are interested in adopting Desi and Lucy please fill out the adoption application found under the "Adopt" menu on our website at or if you have any questions, feel free to email us at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucy, a Rye Brook Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Rye Brook, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Rye Brook.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rye Brook already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Rye Brook breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shih Tzu breeders who help with Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rye Brook paves the way for another one to be saved.
