Colin's Story...
On Oct 26, 2015 a particularly rough looking Shih Tzu was brought to Northwood after being found as a stray in Gadsden County. He was covered with mats, open wounds, and scabs all over his body. A skin scrape showed him to have a severe generalized Demodex mange infection, along with flea infestation, bacterial skin infection, intestinal parasites, and ear infections. It took several months to get Colin into condition for him to be adoptable but we are finally there! His hair has grown in nicely, he has had a teeth cleaning, has been microchipped and is current on vaccines. Colin is a very sweet boy, but hates having his head messed with and is not good at sharing his food or toys with anyone. Seeing where Colin started when he came to us, it is amazing the recovery he has made. Please consider adopting this little love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Colin, a Tallahassee 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 Tallahassee, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Tallahassee.

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