Ruff's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Ruff's Story...
Ruff and Reddy are two young brothers that were surrendered to a high kill shelter here for whatever reason but no fault of theirs.They are both calm and sweet and a little reserved in this environment but getting better all the time. Ruff seems to be the somewhat dominant one in that he has put the responsibility of being the "man of the house" on himself and just worries about Reddy. Reddy worries a little bit about making sure he follows Ruff's lead. Because of those dynamics, they actually seem happier and livelier when I take them out separately. They would be fine if someone wanted to adopt them both once they are in a lower stress, secure home or they can be adopted separately. They are right at a year old and weigh about 17 or 18 lbs. They are neutered, UTD on all shots and tests and appear to be non shedders. They would probably be happiest in a quieter home with older children or adults. If you would like to make one or both of these babies your new forever family member, please contact lorainecm@comcast.net or omlc7@hotmail.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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