Hi, my name is Herbie! I lost my way and now I need a new home. I am approximately three years old and have soft gray fur, even though I look brown in some of my pictures. I have been told I am a Shih Tzu/Havanese mix. I have a black nose, dark eyes and muzzle and a fluffy tail that doesn’t stop wagging. I weigh around 17 pounds. I have bright white teeth and am in excellent physical health. I have lots of energy and love to go on very long walks every day, but could benefit from some training classes so I could learn to walk better on a leash. I’m pretty well behaved in the house, and am already housetrained. My favorite things to do are eating, playing fetch with squeaky toys, chewing on bones, and snuggling with my foster mom. I am a loyal companion and will follow you around and keep you company. I am not real good about sharing my foster mom’s attention, so I hope I can be your only dog and you can give me all of your attention. I would like to live with someone who is home for at least part of the day and who has the energy to keep up with me! Please consider inviting me to be a part of your family because I am a happy boy and I will make you happy too!

Herbie is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and is on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption fee is $320.00 plus tax of $23.28 for a total of$343.28. His foster mom would like his adoptive home to be within 45 miles of the Twin Cities and would be pleased if his new family would attend the annual rescue reunion held in September every year.

To meet Herbie, please complete an adoption application. You can also see him and the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting with us from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Minnetonka Petco near Ridgedale the last Saturday of every month.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

HERBIE, a Eden Prairie Shih Tzu/Havanese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Havanese for sale in Eden Prairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Havanese dog from a breeder in Eden Prairie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Eden Prairie 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 Eden Prairie 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/Havanese breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Havanese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Eden Prairie paves the way for another one to be saved.
