Poe's Story...
This handsome little man is Poe, an 18 month old Shih Tzu. When he came to the shelter we had to remove his right eye because of a previous untreated injury. He has been staying with a foster family while he healed, but is ready to find a forever family of his own! He plays well with other dogs and cats. Poe still is hesitant about people touching his face or feet, especially without warning him, so he does best without smaller kids. He is a cuddly marshmallow of a dog and love kisses and snuggles. He's a Velcro dog and would do better in a house than an apartment because he has a lot to say. Poe has been neutered, microchipped, is current on his vaccinations and heartworm negative. Come and visit him at our Waggin' Tails Adoption Center in Benbrook today! You can also ask his foster mom more about his personality by emailing her at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Poe, a Benbrook 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 Benbrook, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Benbrook.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Benbrook 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 Benbrook 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 Benbrook paves the way for another one to be saved.
