Waldo's Story...
Waldo is a fun, active, spunky one year old Shih Tzu/Poodle mix (Shipoo!) looking for a funky family! Waldo came to ACL from another high volume shelter where he had been waiting to be reclaimed for several weeks. Waldo is a gorgeous dog who has a lively, high-energy, highly affectionate temperament to match. He's smart, sensitive, and loves to go for walks and playtime. He's good with respectful children of all ages, and he likes other dogs when the chemistry is right. We're not sure how he'd do with cats because he is a curious boy. He'll need an active home that has a lot of attention to give him - Waldo is definitely no wallflower! Come meet Waldo and see if he's the man of your dreams!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Waldo, a Oak Park Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu for sale in Oak Park, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Oak Park.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Park 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 Park 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 Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Park paves the way for another one to be saved.
