SOFFIE's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

SOFFIE's Story...
Ms. Soffie came to use after her 93 year old owner fell and was no longer able to live independently. She is an adorable AKC 7 year old, 13 pound, Shih Tzu. She had first been passed to a family member and than purchased by a concerned dog lover that felt that she was not being treated properly and then released to us. Poor baby, her life has been turned upside down.

She has settled into rescue after a rough couple of weeks. She was scared and unsure of where she was and what was happening. BUT no longer. Soffie loves her person, loves to snuggle, loves to go for her walks, LOVES to play and sleep in Bed. She sits up, high fives, is house trained, crate trained and gets along with other dogs and cats.

Soffie's adoption will require a fenced yard or fenced area that is large enough for her to play, run, chase a ball, etc. It must lead directly from the home. She will need to live with someone that is not gone a typical 8 hour work day; someone that works from home, works VERY part time or is retired. Soffie lived with a 90 plus year old woman so she is used to companionship. Although she has no problem when she is left, she deserves to be with someone that has a lot of time for her. Soffie would do best in a quiet home without children. She can live with another dog or be an only dog.

Star-Mar uses a natural care program for our dogs. We are happy to talk with anyone about how to keep your dogs safe and healthy through a vital nutrient diet and without the use of toxins or chemicals.

If you feel that your lifestyle and environment meet with Soffie's needs please contact Martha at or call 330-466-3667 or 330-262-0515 for an application or more information.Soffie's adoption will require an approved application and home visit. The adoption must be completed with the adopter coming to the foster home. Adoption fee is $250. We will microchip with the new Avid Mini Microchip by request for $30 which includes your prepaid registration (a $19.95 value).

PLEASE READ; If you are using a commercial, chemical flea preventative like Trifexis, or Frontline, etc., these are dangerous neurotoxins that poison the life force of your dog (his or her blood) in order to kill a flea. There are serious side effects including seizures and even death from the use of this product. It is so toxic that it is under the control of the EPA, deadly to wildlife, a toxic water pollutant, dangerous to children and pregnant women.. With over 40,000 complaints of sickness and death a year reported to the EPA from the use of these chemical flea products, we feel we can no longer put our dogs in homes who use or will continue to use these products for flea prevention. We are happy to talk with you about natural flea preventatives. Please understand that whether you put the flea product on your dog or in your dog you are still poisoning your dog's blood. There is a safer, healthier way for your dog, you and your family and for the environment!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SOFFIE, a Wooster 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 Wooster, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Wooster.

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