Rocky's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Rocky's Story...
Rocky came to us recently as an Owner Relinquish due to his aging human's acute health conditions. He is a wonderful dog, about 18lbs. Rocky is easy, loves to be combed, cute, loving, sleeps in our human beds, crate trained, too! He will be neutered before he can be adopted. All of our adoptables are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots and take monthly flea and heartworm prevention. Applications are available at or on our Facebook page - Critter Mama Rescue. Home and reference check a must, fenced yard required on most all of our critters!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Ruskin 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 Ruskin, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Ruskin.

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