Franklin's Story...
Meet Franklin! Frankie is just a little love bug and quite a clown J He may be 10 years old but this little man certainly does not act it. He loves to go for walks and LOVES to play. He is a bit of a hoarder when it comes to blankets, clothes and toys, anything soft. He will pull things off chairs, tables (basically anywhere he can reach) and create his own little pile of bedding. He is a bit strong-willed about giving up his hoard but can be easily distracted so you can scoop everything up. He loves to cuddle, have his belly rubbed and will sit in your lap for as long as you will have him! There is no such thing as too much loving as far as Franklin is concerned. He is a bit overweight at 12 lbs but is on a diet and exercise routine so will be quite a svelte little man in the not too distant future. He lives with other dogs and cats and is fine with both. He appears to be housetrained. Because of his size and a bit of a strong will, Franklin would do best in a home without small children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Franklin, a Wilmington 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 Wilmington, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Wilmington.

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