Gidget's Story...
Hello there! Thank-you for clicking on my profile, let me tell you a little bit about myself!

My name is Gidget and I am a 9 year old Shih Tzu / Brussels Griffon mix, that just received a MUCH needed makeover for my looks and my well being from my friends at NBS Animal Rescue. Before their help (along with Bingo Pet Salon, and my other friends at 4paws1heart), you couldn’t even see my face, and I couldn’t see anything since my fur was matted to my eyes, nose and elsewhere so badly. I wasn’t sure there was going to be any hope for me, but lots of people came together to make sure I’d have a happy tail after all!

It just so happens that I am a super smart little lady! I’m crate trained, walk well on a leash, give great kisses and am doing great with potty training. Of course, I’m also a superstar at snuggling (its my favorite!). I should also mention I’m a very good companion to talk to about your day – and snuggling on the couch. I love to fall asleep watching movies, cuddled up with someone who loves me.

I am a mellow lady who enjoys a low energy home, I get anxious around small children, and get nervous around a lot of commotion. It would be best if I was in a home with kids 12yrs and up, so I can learn to be more confident. I would love to have a quiet home with someone who was home often and like to go on short walks, snuggle with me, and pet my soft belly.

I do well with other dogs who are also low energy, mellow, and friendly. Dogs who are hyper, or like to sniff me a lot make me a bit nervous and I try to hide. I would love a home of my own with a family who will spend their days leisurely enjoying each others company.

My friends at NBS Animal Rescue are helping me to find the perfect fur-ever home. All of the dogs in our rescue are have different personalities and needs within an adoptive home. Not all of my friends here at NBS Animal Rescue have the same requirements, so if I’m not be the perfect fit for your family- be sure to check out my other doggy friends too! For me?

These are the things I fur-sure need in my fur-ever home!
- Family who is gone no longer than 5 hour periods.
-Children must be 12yrs or older

If you think I might be the perfect addition to your family please follow these steps:

1.) Visit to fill out my adoption application. As an approved adopter, my rescue friends can set up a home visit so I can meet you. Our rescue is 100% run by volunteers, to help your application be processed as quickly as possible, please make sure to….

2.) Call your veterinarian and give them permission to release information about your current and past pet’s veterinary history.

3.) Call your references too! Let them know to expect a phone call from an unknown phone number, and a rescue team member will need to talk to them on the phone as a reference.

My adoption fee is $250.00 and includes a DHPP vaccine, bordatella vaccine, de-worming, spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccine (age appropriate), heartworm test (age appropriate), heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, microchip insertion, bath, nail trim, ear cleaning, leash and collar and one week's worth of food. If you’d like to meet me, please apply online and to become an approved adopter!

Our adoption process requires that any pet in your household be current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative , spayed/neutered (unless a documented medical reason is on file with your veterinarian). Dogs must be current on Distemper DHPP combo vaccine and Rabies vaccine, cats must be current on Distemper and Rabies at the time of application. This also applies to any pets in your home within the past five years.

While I hope that you have fallen in love with me and are ready to apply, I understand if I might not be the perfect pup for your family just yet. However, would you please help by sharing my picture on Facebook, twitter or by email? I'm a great pup and need a loving family to give all of my love and puppy kisses to! Thank-you for your help!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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