HAROLD's Story...
In addition to the following profile for this dog, please first read the Adoption Information at to understand the process, requirements and timeline for adoption. An adoption application can also be found in the Adoption Info section. If, after reading that information, you have any questions, please submit your question via e-mail and it will be answered. Please do not request a phone call. A personal phone call will only be made when an adoption application has been submitted and the foster parent wishes to consider the application. Thank you!

Harold is a very nice, quiet boy who is the quintessential lap dog. He is just a little guy, weighing only ten pounds, and is eight years old. He is happiest when around people, especially one person he can bond with. He likes the company of adults or older respectful children and tends to pick one person and shadow them where ever they go. He is a great snuggler who loves to nap at your side and has few demands beyond that. His gentle and loving personality is very characteristic of this wonderful breed. He would be a perfect companion to someone who is retired or works from home. He is house broken and a really quiet house guest. He would love to sleep next to you at night. He likes other dogs and cats and would enjoy their company if you did have to leave for short periods. He also likes to go on car rides and would be happy being your co-pilot in errands and adventures. He is not a lover of the cold and does not like to stay out for very long in cold weather. He pretty much will do his business fast and then zip in to be covered in a blanket to warm up.

Harold is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, is on heart worm preventative, and is micro chipped. His adoption fee is $220.00 plus sales tax. Harold’s foster family would like him to live within a reasonable driving distance of the Twin Cities. They would also like Harold and his new family to attend the Shih Tzu Rescue Reunion which is held each year on the third weekend in June.

To meet Harold and other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota, please visit with us from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Minnetonka Petco near Ridgedale the last Saturday of every month.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

HAROLD, a Eden Prairie 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 Eden Prairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Eden Prairie.

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