Facts about Marvin

  • Breed: Shih Tzu
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
This adorable dude is Marvin. He is a spunky happy guy for an 10 yr old Shih Tzu

We are looking for that special adopter who will love Marvin with his being mostly blind. He does have mild vision and can navigate anywhere he goes perfectly. He does require eye meds and we'd love an adopter who knows that a blind dog is just as happy and loving as a sited dog.

The great thing about Marvin is he actually knows what is going on all over his home. He walks up and down the stairs with no problem, he plays with his toys and wrestles with his foster siblings and he somehow knows when we are walking to the car and when I have food in my hand. He's quite the character.

He loves people and kids, going to the dog park and wandering around enjoying the grass and smells. He can walk around for hours. lol He will be a perfect dog for someone looking for a mellow dog who is easy and a lovebug.

Marvin's adoption fee includes:

-Current vaccines
-Eye meds for 6 mos.

If you are interested in meeting Marvin, please fill out our adoption application on our website and we will be in contact.

About Precious Pals Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Precious Pals Pet Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit animal rescue organization who specializes in rescuing death row dogs from the Los Angeles City and County Shelters.
We are a ALL FOSTER based rescue. None of our dogs live in a boarding facility.

We have a deep love for saving animals who have been abandoned, neglected and surrendered by their owners at the shelters. We also help in rehoming animals whose owners can no longer care for their beloved pet and don't want to put them the shelter.

All of our rescues are fully vetted prior to adoption and our adoption fee covers, spay/neuter, vaccines, and microchip.

Our adoption fees for puppies is $350.00
Adult dogs range from $300 - $400.00
Senior dogs between $150.00 - $200.00

Our rescue is solely funded by donations and our adoption fees. We welcome donations via our website and our amazon wish list.
