HERBIE'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!

Herbie just turned 4 years old. He is a handsome black and white male Shih Tzu. At 18 pounds, he has a great proportion and is the perfect weight for his build. He is a friendly guy and loves to have his tummy rubbed. He was initially a little unsure in his foster home where there are a couple other Shih Tzus and wasn’t sure that he could trust them, especially around his food. Occasionally Herbie exhibits guarding issues related to food or possession of the people he loves, so he would probably do best as only dog. Herbie would love the full, undivided attention of his family.

Herbie was given to the Shih Tzu Rescue because the young toddler in his original home didn’t know how to respectfully interact with him and he snapped at the child a couple of times. So his ideal home is one without young children living or visiting in the home. Even though he loves being with his people, he is also fine hanging out on his own and is happy entertaining himself. He loves to play outside in the back yard, so it would be great if his new home had a yard for him or if his adopters could take him for long walks every day. Herbie is house trained and will let you know when he needs to go out by standing at the door. He is able to stay at home for several hours on his own.

Herbie is healthy, neutered, current on vaccinations and is micro-chipped. He also just had a dental cleaning. His adoption fee is $320.00 plus sales tax of $23.28, for a total of $343.28. His foster parents would like his adoptive family to live within a reasonable driving distance of the Twin Cities and also encourage them to attend the annual Shih Tzu reunion held in June each year.

To meet Herbie, please complete an adoption application. Or you can see him and the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting 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

HERBIE, 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.
