Rio's Story...
Rio is an extremely sweet girl who was rescued from a puppy mill in Mississippi (http://animalrescuecorps.org/2016/08/animal-rescue-corps-and-tate-county-sheriffs-department-rescue-nearly-200-animals-from-a-puppy-mill/). She was forced to live in her own urine and feces, stuffed in a box with other dogs. She has had at least one litter of pups. We believe she is around one year old and she weighs 12lbs. Even though she has spent her life in a breeding box, this baby is the happiest little girl. It only takes her a few minutes to warm up to a person. If you show her any attention at all, she will love you to pieces. She LOVES to play with toys... they are new to her and she is just amazed by them! When she isn't playing, she is completely content to curl up on your lap. At night, she sleeps with her foster parents. Rio is a thankful girl... you can tell she appreciates the finer things in life. If you are interested in adding Rio to your family, please go to www.goofyfootrescue.org to complete an online adoption application. She is being fostered in West TN and will be transported once her adoption is finalized.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rio, a Bedminster 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 Bedminster, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Bedminster.

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