Mandy's Story...
GENTLE BLIND SENIOR LONGING FOR HER OWN HOME. Mandy lived a loving life with her Mom in Southern IL. However, her Mom needed to move on to assisted elder care and could not take Mandy. Mandy found herself at a high kill shelter in Southern IL. Mandy is 12 years old, happy and enjoys sitting in the sunshine outside in nice weather. She is quiet and agreeable with other animals and all people. She is house trained and will let you know when she needs to go out. Mandy is sight impaired and should not go up or down stairs. She navigates well in a home once she knows where she is. Mandy wants a nice quiet home where she can live her life with love and care. She is healthy with a slight heart murmur not unusual at her age. She does have chronic dry eyes like many of her breed do. She will resist cleaning her eyes and getting her drops. Patience and slow going are needed. Beyond that, Mandy is super easy. She will sleep on her dog bed or on your lap. We want to find her a home where your lap will feature. She is quiet and limits barking to let you know when she is hungry or needs a potty break. Mandy will make a great companion. Please contact us with any questions you may have. We work full time and will respond as quickly as we can, generally within 24 hours. Mandy is spayed, heart worm negative, microchipped and vaccinated.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mandy, a Lincolnwood 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 Lincolnwood, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Lincolnwood.

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