Bogart's Info...

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

Bogart's Story...
Ugh, Bogart is kind of ridiculously wonderful. All Shih Tzu, full of personality and love. He's fine with other dogs and cats, but wants to be around people the most, he loves everyone. His nickname "Bogie" suits his goofy personality and attitude. He's about 12 pounds and 8-9 years old, we are estimating.

Bogart underwent some pretty serious surgery but is all healed up and back to normal. He had two huge bladder stones removed, a dental, and was neutered. His back legs have some arthritis, but it doesn't seem to bother him. He also has one cloudy eye, but sees and hears quite well.

We'd love to find a very special family who's interested in giving Bogart the best food, medical care, and lots of attention each day. He's not had an easy life and really deserves a great second act. He's just wonderful.

Bogart is fully vetted with a rabies vaccine, DA2PPV, and Bordatella vaccine, heartworm and fecal tests, and is microchipped. He is kept on monthly flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative. Bogart's adoption fee is $250.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bogart, a Munster 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 Munster, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Munster.

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