I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

We all agreed that Ruby, a truly beautiful, approximately 3-year old Shih Tzu, should be a candidate for a ticket on transport to her forever home in Colorado. Ruby was facing euthanasia in a very high-kill shelter in Texas and immediate action was necessary to save her life. Ruby, while only weighing about 8 - 10 lbs, loves the outdoors and would be so happy to accompany her favorite people on leisurely walks. She is so excited when she knows it's walk time...we picture her overjoyed with the Colorado paths and loving the many days of sunshine. Ruby is a very friendly and engaging girl. She's always very happy to socialize with dog-loving people and their friendly pups on her fun treks around the neighborhood. Or you can find her lying quietly snuggled close to her favorite humans with the most contented look on her sweet face. Ruby enjoys her favorite people (many of which are older children 8+ due to respect for Ruby's small size) and lets them know that they are wonderful and so special to her. She engages with all people in such a positive and healthy way and there's no question that kindness and attention can get her tail wagging with excitement.
At the end of the's all about a warm lap and lots of cuddling and love. Ruby is a world class lap dog but would always be happy to share a lap..and a belly rub..with another gentle dog. She is such a well-behaved and respectful girl in her's wonderful how low-maintenance she is and means more time to spend having fun.
We feel that Ruby may enjoy the quiet and security that a crate offers. However, if given the opportunity to share the bed of one of her favorite humans...Ruby would be ecstatic. She thinks that hugs and kisses are the greatest things ever...even better than a great treat. Ruby also enjoys the car and would always be game for riding shotgun or can even fit perfectly under the seat in a plane to accompany her family on great adventures.
Ruby is a non-shedding girl with a stunning cotton-soft coat. She will therefore require great nutrition and periodic grooming to keep her hair healthy and matt-free.

Ruby will arrive on transport in Denver on 10/18. If interested in this snuggly and sweet family pup, please fill out an application at and submit to

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruby-ADOPTION PENDING, a Boulder 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 Boulder, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Boulder.

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