Marcel's Story...
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Meet Marcel. Marcel is a very sweet boy who may be a little timid when he first meets you, but it doesn't take him long to end up lying in your lap or at least beside you. If you rub his tummy he will love you forever. Marcel is a great companion who likes to go for walks or rides in the car, whatever you want to do is fine with him. He is happy following you around the house or the yard, being your little shadow. He would prefer to have a fenced yard though, because he does like to venture out and explore things outdoors on his own, too. Marcel is crate trained if you need to go somewhere without him, but when it is time to go to bed he would prefer to sleep next to you. Marcel is currently living in foster care with two other dogs his size and he gets along very well witht them. We are not sure how he would be with a larger dog or cats, yet. Marcel has a coat that will need to be groomed every 6-8 weeks, but he will not shed on the furniture. Marcel is a loving dog who is looking for someone to give him the TLC he deserves for the rest of his life. If you would like to meet Marcel, please email Sonia at You can also complete an adoption application at Up-to-date on vaccinations, house trained, neutered and will be microchipped before adopted. Indoor homes only. Adoption fee $175.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marcel, a Cedar Rapids Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise for sale in Cedar Rapids, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Cedar Rapids.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cedar Rapids 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 Cedar Rapids 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/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cedar Rapids paves the way for another one to be saved.
