Matilda's Story...
This friendly face came in attached to a body in need of some major TLC. Matilda was turned into the shelter with a gaping wound on her back and newborn puppies, very underweight and matted hair. Two of her three puppies didn't make it and the third was adopted by another mommy since she was in no condition to be a caregiver. She's had all of her needs attended to and she is now ready to find a family who will spoil her! Matilda is approximately 2 years old and weighs 11 lbs. She is friendly with people and fine with other dogs, she just asks her new family have a lap for her to cuddle in! Matilda is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccines, her adoption fee is $250.

If you are interested in adopting please submit an application at www.waggingtailsrescue.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Matilda, a Henderson 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 Henderson, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Henderson.

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