Autumn's Info...

I am already spayed, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Autumn's Story...
Autumn is so sweet and cuddly once she knows you. But...until then, she can be quite the challenge. Autumn came in trying to bite anyone that came near her. She has made progress from that and is now taking treats from everyone who stops by the rescue. However, she will still try to bite if a stranger reaches for her. I know she bonds with people because she has bonded with me. She jumps up on my lap, brings me toys and gives me kisses. She just needs that time to get to know you. We recommend an experienced dog person for Autumn and no young children.

Autumn is a 2 year old shih tzu/bichon which is a teddy bear. If you are interested in adopting Autumn, please complete the adoption application at Thanks!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Autumn, a Prole Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise for sale in Prole, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Prole.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Prole 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 Prole 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/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Prole paves the way for another one to be saved.
