Moe's Story...
Moe is a 3 year old purebred shih tzu. And this boy is everyone's best friend, he keeps everyone in his foster home in stitches with his hysterical personality. He gets along with all people big or small and all dogs. This little love muffin plays like there is no tomorrow and runs in the yard without a care in the world. Don't believe us check out our Facebook page and you will see his video. So why is he special needs?? Well he has a condition that affects a lot of shih tzu and that is chronic dry eye and will require drops/meds in his eyes for the rest of his life. He doesn't mind the drops and will sit patiently while you do it. Because he has lived his 2-3 years of life with the condition untreated he has developed painful ulcers on both his eyes that are infected. We are actively treating this and we see much improvement with each day. We do notice some deficits in his sight at present and don't know if it is permanent or not until his ulcers are all cleared up. As sad as this is Moe has no idea he is any different than any of the other dogs. He runs (fast I might add) and plays he just occasionally bumps into to stuff (especially in poor lighting) and would certainly have to be watched if you have a pool or a pond. (He falls into his foster mom's quite frequently thank goodness he can swim but can't find his way out so has to be constantly watched). True to his happy go lucky personality he just shakes off the water and takes off running with his friends. He truly is the sweetest, happiest boy on earth! If you are interested in finding out more about this adorable little guy please email His adoption fee is $225 it includes his annual vaccinations, rabies license, dewormer, vet exam, microchip, neuter, first month of heart worm prevention.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Moe, a Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

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