DUDESpending's Story...
In addition to the following profile for this dog, please first read the Adoption Information at to understand the process, requirements and timeline for adoption. An adoption application can also be found in the Adoption Info section. If, after reading that information, you have any questions, please submit your question via e-mail and it will be answered.

Dudes is a sweet little guy who is only one year old and weighs ten pounds. He is very playful and full of energy. He can be a little mischievous but he easily takes redirection if he is doing something that needs correction. He loves his toys and running in a fenced yard. Dudes also loves cuddle time with plenty of petting, belly rubs and attention. He is learning leash walking and basic commands but he would benefit from taking puppy obedience classes. He is very eager to learn and loves to please, so he will acquire good doggy manners if he is given the right guidance. Housetraining is a work in progress, and he is consistently getting better, but his adoptive family will have to continue to work with him to so that he is well house trained. Dudes gets along with people as well as with other small dogs. He would love another small playmate or would do well as an only pup. He is content to either share your bed with you or have his doggy bed on the floor next to yours.

Dudes is healthy, neutered, current on vaccinations, is microchipped and is on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption fee is $370.00 plus $26.92 Minnesota state sales tax for a total of $396.92. His foster parents are willing to drive 150 miles from the Twin Cities to find his perfect forever home. His new adopters are also encouraged to attend the Shih Tzu Rescue Reunion held in September every year.

To meet Dudes, please complete an adoption application. Or you can also see him and the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting with us from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Minnetonka Petco near Ridgedale the last Saturday of every month.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DUDESpending, a Eden Prairie 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 Eden Prairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Eden Prairie.

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