Mugzy's Story...
Have you met Mugzy? This 5-year-old boy is full of love, snuggles, and precious shih tzu kisses. While some may call Mugzy a disabled pup, we call him "Awesomely-Abled." How many pups do you know who happily hop across the yard when playing with kids? This boy gets around just fine, and he's completely house broken! Mugzy came to us when his owner sadly had to relocate to another state for very imperative health treatment. As a 2-year-old, Mugzy ate weed killer from his yard which left him unable to use his back legs. He does have a wheelchair/cart that helps him get around.

He adores time with blankets, giving kisses to his humans on their noses, and hopping around in the grass! He is wonderful with young children and other dogs and likes to cuddle with his 3-year-old human foster sister. He's soft, gentle, and is known to steal the heart of everyone he meets. Mugzy is the perfect companion to snuggle with during a Netflix marathon. You bring the blanket, and he'll bring the kisses.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mugzy, a Hainesville 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 Hainesville, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Hainesville.

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