OREO's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

OREO's Story...
Oreo is a 10 year old Shih Tzu mix that was taken to the groomers and abandoned by his old family. Oreo was not well taken care. The groomer did a wonderful job cleaning him up and Oreo joined our rescue. Oreo is a very mellow guy. He loves to play with toys and chew on bones. He loves riding in the car too!! Oreo is very dog social. There are several cats in Oreo's current foster home and he does not notice they are there. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, on heartworm preventative and house trained. Oreo just loves being around people and he follows his foster mom all around. Oreo deserves a chance to find a forever family who will show him how a furry member of the family should be treated . . . with unconditional love and patience. Are you Oreo's forever family??

All dogs we rescue stay with us until they find their forever homes. We do not do same day adoptions. Adoption applications are only available at our adoption events. A home visit is required to ensure our dog is going to a safe environment and our dog gets along with your dog(s) and/or cat(s). We require all our dogs over the age of 1 year attend 1 obedience class (6 week session) outside the home. You must live within 1 hour of Birmingham, MI to adopt one of our dogs. Come meet all of our adoptable dogs at the Make A Difference Rescue adoption events every Sunday at the Troy Petco on Coolidge near 15 Mile Rd from 12-4:30pm. Our adoption fee is $275.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

OREO, a Birmingham 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 Birmingham, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Birmingham.

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