Peyton's Story...
To foster or adopt one of our Captivating Canines, please fill out our convenient online application that can be found on our website ( under Adoption Procedures - please read first. THANK YOU!! :)

Meet PEYTON! He is absolutely darling! Peyton is super sweet and a little lover! He is 13 lbs and is only about 2 years old. He is great with other dogs and good with everyone he meets including children. Peyton is actually on the mellow side. He is playful, but not a crazy youngster and he is good on a leash. This poor sweetie was a stray and was just a mess when we found him at Animal Welfare League (see picture above). As you can see, he has since been groomed and is just beautiful now! He is in a wonderful foster home with 3 other dogs and a teenage boy, but he would love nothing more than to find his Forever Family and be the center of your world! Please fill out an application immediately because this little cutie is sure to melt MANY hearts...!

NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is no further than 75 miles from Chicago. This is because we PERSONALLY do home visits for every single dog / puppy. Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) and we have had him / her for a longer time. We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Peyton, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Chicago.

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