Sammy's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Sammy's Story...
Sammy is very sweet. He's perfectly happy if you want him in your lap, but also just as happy to know someone is near. He is in a foster home that is helping him along with his challenges. He cannot see nor hear at this particular time. He had surgery recently to try and restore some sight. It is a matter of time to see how much vision he regains. We are very optimistic. Sammy is only 5 years in age and is an adorable shih tzu. He is not housebroken, but we have learned when he starts to wander a little - that is his que that is potty relief time. He sleeps through the night on the bed with his foster (and loving it!) . He gets along with other dogs and cats, but if they are rambunctious it upsets him. Children would be too much for him. He sleeps very sound and if you are to wake him up, go slow in order to not to startle him. He's very low maintenance overall and would be perfect for someone mostly home. He does fine while the foster is at work, however, no one is there to let him out when he gives the que and he does have potty accidents. We truly hope there is a special home out there that can help him along and be patient with where he is at this time on mastering house skills.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sammy, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Richmond.

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