Benedict's Story...
Benedict is a middle aged Shih Tzu who enjoyed a good life until his elderly owner could no longer care for him. He values his loved ones very much and is affectionate and cuddly once he is comfy and trusts you. He has a little bit of a silly side, too.

Benedict is a faithful guy who feels like his job is to be by your side and adore you.
His vision and hearing seem to be a bit diminished so Benedict likes things that are familiar; a home with cherished loved ones, a predictable routine, places that look and smell familiar, and his favorite bed. He gets around just fine and seems to enjoy walks and sniffing out new surroundings.

He can be unsettled by new people and is wary of being picked up by strangers. He does not like it when strangers grab at him since he can feel a little uncertain of their intentions. He is friendly but needs some time and treats before he trusts.

However, he has already come to love staff members here and truly enjoys sharing love and getting attention. He is fine with being carried around by them. He was very good during his grooming session with a trusted staff member.

Benedict is great on the leash and potties nicely while being walked. He has kept his kennel perfectly clean. He might be housetrained but no guarantees about that, of course. He is a quiet boy and enjoys a peaceful life but still has plenty of energy for adventuresome walks.

Benedict is 13 pounds, a lovely size for lap warming and snuggling. Give him a little time to warm up and he is a wonderful companion. He has long, soft fur and should be low or non shedding. His coloring is beautiful. Adoption donation $100.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benedict, a High Point 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 High Point, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in High Point.

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