Buddy is a sweet, 7 year old peanut that weighs only 8 pounds. He is very friendly and loves people. One of his favorite places to be is on your lap and he will ask to sit on your lap whenever the opportunity presents itself. He has a very easy going personality and is happiest when he can just be with someone. Even though he’s a mellow little guy, he enjoys the outdoors and especially likes brisk, long walks, so he is looking for a home where his new family will can take him on long, daily walks. Because he likes his people so much, he would do best in a home where someone is home for most of the day. We would also prefer that there are no young children living in the home or visiting. Buddy would be very happy to be able to sleep with his new family in their bed at night.

He came into rescue because he had bladder stones and his former family couldn’t afford to provide the surgery. He has since had surgery to remove the bladder stones, and he will need to be on a special prescription food forever, and also be tested periodically for crystals in his urine. The prescription food and tests are not expensive, but his new family must understand and commit to this aspect of his lifelong care.

Buddy is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption fee is $220.00 plus $16.01 sales tax for a total of $236.01. His foster parents would like his adoptive home to be within 30 miles of the Twin Cities and also encourage them to attend the Shih Tzu rescue reunion held in September every year.

To meet Buddy, 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 on Saturdays September 24th, October 1st November 5th or December 3rd.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BUDDYpending, 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.
