Sugar is a one in a million girl. She is about 8 or 9 years old and only 12 lbs. She looks like a puppy. She's good with other dogs and cats and friendly with everyone. She was recently rescued from Los Angeles! Her foster mom says: "Sugar is so special it's hard to believe. She is a mature dog but has the most wonderful, endearing moments of puppy playfulness when you get home or when I play with my other dogs -- she jumps in and out of her dog bed and will chase me for a hot second across my apartment. She is housebroken and very quiet, I have only heard her bark at noise in the hall once or twice or when she's excited when I get home. She has a hilarious habit of marking things when she goes to the bathroom -- she pees with her leg up like a boy! She walks well on a leash but walks a little slowly so would do best in a low energy home. She's good with other dogs but doesn't like high energy dogs that get in her face. She adores treats and belly rubs and is a great snuggle buddy. She would do best in a home with someone who can give her lots of attention and/or has another mellow small dog."

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sugar, a Manhattan 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 Manhattan, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Manhattan.

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