Rocky's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Rocky's Story...
Rocky is in foster care in Greeneville, TN. He can easily be transported to middle TN .
Rocky was relinquished to our rescue because his owner is in hospice and can no longer care for him.


He is 6 yrs. old and has food allergies so must be on a grain free diet. He is UTD on shots, including a dog flu vaccination and is neutered. He loves to play with a squeaky ball or toy. He bonds quickly and will sleep by your side if watching TV and he loves sleeping in bed at your feet. Rocky is a "people person" and enjoys being talked to and wags his tail in response! Here is the type home that is needed. Rocky is housebroken.

Rocky must be in a home as the only dog. He is jealous of other dogs getting attention. He has always lived with an older woman so an "empty nester " home or one with older children. ( teens + ) is perfect! He is friendly and is fine with men. Unfortunately, I have no way of testing him with cats. He must have a fenced yard. Rocky does walk well on a leash, but his previous home had a fenced yard. He is nervous riding in the car because he has only been to the vet and groomer! We are trying to make the transition into his new home an easy one, thus the requirements and the urgency.

Rocky's adoption fee is $250. All his vet records come with him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Hendersonville 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 Hendersonville, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Hendersonville.

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