BUCKY-pending's Story...
In addition to the following profile for this dog, please first read the Adoption Information at to understand the process, requirements and timeline for adoption. An adoption application can also be found in the Adoption Info section. If, after reading that information, you have any questions, please submit your question via e-mail and it will be answered. Please do not request a phone call. A personal phone call will only be made when an adoption application has been submitted and the foster parent wishes to consider the application. Thank you!

Bucky has settled into his foster home beautifully. He is a dog that adapts well. He is reliably housetrained and is a wonderfully friendly, calm and very cuddly dog. He eats well and enjoys taking lots of naps, but then so do many humans! He loves to stretch out on the living room floor or couch and snooze. His foster mom looks at his nap time as a way to get her house work and projects done around the house! Bucky also likes sitting in the park or outside, looking around for someone to greet. All of his foster mom’s neighbors already love him and agree with her at how cute his is. He has met lots of neighborhood dogs in this manner, and they all seem to get along. Bucky wags and wags his tail around other dogs. He happily goes on walks nearby, although not very fast or long. Walking is great exercise for him so he remains at a svelte 15 pounds. It is also good socialization and mental stimulation for a senior dog.
Bucky had his teeth cleaned and he has almost a full set that sparkle beautifully for his 13 years of age! His health is very good and we expect he will be with his new owner for several more years. If you love the “Young At Heart” dogs: dogs that are gentle, calm, and love to be with you, Bucky is one of the best. The enjoyment he can give and the smiles he can add to your life can not be measured.

Bucky is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption fee is $50.00 plus sales tax of $3.64, for a total of $53.64. His foster mom would like his adopters to live within 50 miles of the Twin Cities and also agree to attend the Shih Tzu rescue reunion held each year in September.

To meet Bucky, please complete an adoption application. Or you can also see him and the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting with us from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Minnetonka Petco near Ridgedale the last Saturday of every month

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BUCKY-pending, a Eden Prairie 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 Eden Prairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Eden Prairie.

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