Other:  It appears someone has been cutting his hair with scissors.  He is very sweet and we hope his owner is looking for him.  We have taken him to see a veterinarian because he was peeing blood, the veterinarian determined he has a bad ear infection and a bladder infection which could be caused by or causing bladder stones to form.  The veterinarian saw some crystals in his urine but could not feel stones and we cannot afford x-rays.  Please contact Sue in the office if you are able to help defray some of these newly acquired medical costs as every penny helps!  We will also be accepting donations to help further his medical treatment.  Thank you!  He is very sweet and non-aggressive!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skipper (Oliver), a Detroit Lakes 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 Detroit Lakes, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Detroit Lakes.

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