Cody's Story...
Hi! My name is Cody and I am a 1-2 year old Shih Tzu. I had to have all my pretty fur shaved off because I was surrendered to the shelter all matted! YUCK! I sure feel better now....the nice people were able to save the fur on my tail and some on my face, too, which makes a handsome boy like me feel good about myself! I weigh around 13 pounds, but could stand to gain a pound or two, which I am sure to do now that I am safe, out of the shelter, and eating decent food. I love people, and even sit very still when I have my toe nails trimmed! I get along well with other dogs, but have not been tested with cats. I am a quiet boy, but wag my tail often, and will play once I get comfortable in my surrendings. I am a little dog,with a big, big heart. I will only be adopted to a family with children older than 10 years of age.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cody, a Rockville 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 Rockville, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Rockville.

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