Meeko's Story...
Meeko is a wonderful and quirky 4 year old shih tzu. He is extremely affectionate and can usually be found either napping in your lap or belly up getting a tummy rub. When he isn't lounging around he LOVES to get out and go for walks, rides in the car and to run around the yard getting my big dogs to chase him. He ususally gets stepped on or knocked over in the end but he gets up for more! He also plays tug with my 9 mo old pit bull. Meeko started off as breeding stock in a puppy mill, that is how he lost 1 eye, but if I hadn't told you...you would never know! The last picture is a "before" shot. Rags to riches!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meeko, a Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Portsmouth.

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