He is never boring and loves to run and play . Gets along well with other dogs . He gets so excited when it's time to eat . He is crate trained . Truman sure has come a long way with his foster family.

Truman is a seven year old shihtzu that spent his life chained. For this reason we feel that he deserves a securely fenced yard to enjoy his freedom and run and play. He is quickly coming out of his shell and starting to play with his foster siblings. He loves to eat and will dance on his back legs for treats! He has so much personality packed in his 16 pound body! Foster mom is crate training him and using belly bands in the house. He is already marking way less but will need someone with a lot of patience to understand he was used to being outside and going whenever he wanted. He's never done #2 in the house or had any accidents in his crate. He walks well on a leash and enjoys exploring the world. He's just the sweetest guy in the world and will make someone very happy!!

All dogs will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, heart worm tested, wormed, micro-chipped and will have had 1 month of heart worm preventative, and 1 month of flea preventative before adoption.

Adoption fee: $250

About Our Rescue Group...

Bluegrass Shih Tzu Rescue, Inc is a 501c3 non-profit. BGSTR was founded January 1,2000 by Donna Hall-Turner, Director. We have rescued between 2000-3000 shih tzu, shih mixes and other small homeless dogs. We are a small rescue, which needs volunteers, especially foster homes. We require the foster homes to be located in KY. This is so we are close enough to help each other out, in different situations. BGSTR is always in need of donations, which are tax deductible, for the care of the rescue dog.

Our Adoption Process...

BGSTR adoption process begins with an adoption application. Three references are required.Please understand all members are volunteers. Also, please understand it may take a few days to return emails or calls. A home visit will be conducted prior to any placements. An adoption fee will be required. The fee is based on the age of the dog. The fee goes toward the vetting bills, grooming, food, and any items needed for the rescue dogs. After completing the above process and upon approval, an adoption contract will be required to sign by both the adopted parents as well as a member of BGSTR. If for any reason, the adopted dog cannot be kept in the "forever" home, the dog must be returned to BGSTR.
