Shaggy (Neutered)'s Story...
"Shaggy" is a cute 2-year old male Shih Tzu who arrived at the HSOV on April 21, 2016 after he was picked up in Marietta Ohio by the Washington County Dog Warden. This darling little man has a black long smooth coat, a long curled tail, and an adorable face with Shih Tzu features including a flat muzzle and short floppy ears. "Shaggy" has a cleft palate which gives him an even cuter appearance in our eyes. He has an extremely friendly, outgoing personality and is a pushover for attention. Shaggy's coat was rather shaggy (hence the name he was given upon intake). One of our volunteers who happens to be a dog groomer gave "Shaggy" a nice summer haircut soon after his arrival, and he surely looks (and feels) like a new man :) "Shaggy" is a small dog who weighs just 10.2 lbs. He is now available for adoption since he was not reclaimed. "Shaggy" was neutered on May 3, 2016 and was also given rabies vaccine.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shaggy (Neutered), a Marietta 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 Marietta, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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