Dash's Info...

Dash's Story...
Age: 7 years
Breed: Shih Tzu mix
Gender: Male
Neutered: Yes
Kids: No
Apartments: Yes
Cats: Dominate dog friendly cat
Dogs: Yes ( if they don't mind a pestie little brother)

Dash is a fun and affectionate little guy but if pushed to far he can bite so an experienced owner that can read body language is a must. With time he bonds really well with his handler and enjoys doing everything with them. Dash needs some work walking on leash but does really well with his easy walker harness. Unfortunately at this point he needs to be sedated to be groomed but we think once he is in a stable environment he can learn to trust and realize that grooming doesn’t have to hurt.
In regards to his behavior around dogs Dash can be a bit of a pest. Something like a younger sibling trying to be part of other siblings gang. He wants to get a reaction whether it be good or bad from a dog and will persist until either the human steps in or he gets what he wants. He can be a lot of fun and though he likes other dogs he might be too much for a lot of dogs to handle. He listens when he is told to do something and is house trained.
We are seeking an experienced home with NO kids; a confidant dog friendly cat would be great but not necessary. He would do fine in an apartment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dash, a Cambridge 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 Cambridge, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Cambridge.

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