Olaf's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Olaf's Story...
Olaf is a very cute ~6-7 year old Shihtzu abandoned in rough shape. He has severe chronic ear infections and skin infections that were never treated...his ear canals are almost closed due to thick scar tissue and his face and feet are raw from chewing and scratching:(. He's starting to feel better now that he's getting proper vet care but still has a long way to go to fully recovered and will need a forever home committed to make sure he gets whatever he needs for the rest of his life and is never allowed to suffer again. As uncomfortable as he is he's been a friendly gentle little guy who loves attention. Please email if you are interested in fostering or adopting this little guy. And please consider donating on our website toward Olaf's care. We have taken in so many similar expensive medical cases lately but still have a hard time turning our backs on a little dog in urgent need!

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Can't adopt but still want to help this dog? Click on the "Sponsor Me" button at the top of this page to donate toward his/her care! All donations are tax-deductible and go directly toward the care of our rescue dogs. Thank you for your support!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Olaf, a Oak Ridge 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 Oak Ridge, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

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