SAMMY's Story...
SAMMY is a delightful 3 year old Shih Tzu. His foster mom says he is absolutely no trouble at all. He is totally potty trained, gets along with her dog, and loves her children. He doesn't currently live with any cats but are happy to introduce him to kitties if you have felines at home. We can't imagine there being a problem. SAMMY LOVES to cuddle on the couch. At night he sleeps on a doggy bed beside his foster mom's bed. He rides well in the car and behaves in his crate when no one is home. SAMMY is ready for his forever family to love him as much as his foster family does.

SAMMY is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations.
His $450 adoption fee includes health certificate and transport to Knoxville.

All of our pets start their journey in Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted at which time they travel via transport to their new forever home. We use Alpha Dog Pet Transport for our New England adoptions ( and The Road Home Pet Transport for our Midwest adopters.

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well educated decision from well qualified staff.

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you request, complete, and submit an application before asking additional questions. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, Blues City is operated 100% by volunteers. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SAMMY, a knoxville 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 knoxville, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in knoxville.

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