Viktor's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Viktor's Story...
Big fan of: Cuddling, riding in the car, going for long walks, getting treats, working on obedience, and wearing the latest sweater styles.

Not a fan of: Other dogs. Viktor is not particularly fond of other dogs and would need a home where he doesn’t have to socialize with them.

A little more… This sprightly fellow doesn’t let his age show; he is full of life! Viktor is an active little guy who loves going for long walks or having long play sessions. He is very affectionate and loves his humans! At the end of a long day, Viktor is a cuddle bug who will enjoy lounging around watching a good flick.

Dream Home: Viktor is searching for an experienced home with children 5 and older and no other dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Viktor, 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.
