Angel's Story...


Date Animal Rescued:    February  17, 2015

Date Adopted:  

Adoption Donation:   $125.00   

All About Me:   A ngel was turned into our local shelter.  She was purchased from Hendersonville and delivered to Old Fort.  The couple that purchased her kept her one week but all she would do was hide and then come out at night to eat.  They took her to the shelter because they could not do anything with her.  I went to pick her up and she was in the shelter office.  She ran from me but once I picked her up she calmed down and let me pet her but as soon as I put her down we had to go through the same thing again. 

UPDATE April 19, 2015:  Angel is a 6 year old Shih Tzu that was pregnant when we rescued her.  Angel is very afraid of people (we feel that she is a puppymill girl) so she will need someont t hat is willing to work with her on her trust issues.  She needs an adult only home. 

Angel will need someone that can work with her on her trust issues and she could never be around children.  She gets along great with the other dogs and cats in her foster home.  I think she was a puppy mill dog and just does not know what it means to have a human to love her. 

Angel is up to date on shots, heartworm negative and spayed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Angel, a Old Fort 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 Old Fort, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Old Fort.

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