Phoenix's Story...
This little guy is approx 5 months and 8.8 lbs as of 8/1/16. He and his brother were owner surrendered to a high kill shelter. Both look like shih tzu mixes maybe with long hair dachshund. They are sweet dogs, very playful, love toys ,love running and playing with the other rescues. They will need house and leash/harness training. They can be adopted together or separately. As they are so small we prefer children over 10 years of age. If adopting together, we would require basic puppy training classes.

The total adoption donation of $575 and includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration. The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. .

Just as a note, if you are in Massachusetts and are adopting directly from Texas rather than from a local foster, there are new quarantine laws in effect. All rescues must be quarantined 48 hours at a state run facility, and in addition, a second interstate health certificate is required to be issued by a Massachusetts vet. This new law adds an additional cost of $125.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Phoenix, a Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Woonsocket.

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