Ducky's Story...
Age: 12 years

Hi there! I'm Ducky, a very fun 12-year-old shih tzu mix who absolutely loves loves loves people! I am great with other dogs and cats, and enjoy their company. I know how to sit up and beg for treats, and am a very spry little guy. I am a good watch dog as I like to keep an eye on things outside and am the first to alert if there are any dangerous birds or squirrels in the yard! I'd be just fine with gentle kids, and am a joy to be around. I can't wait to find someone who will love me and spoil me in my golden years. Is that you?

Ducky, a Palatine 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 Palatine, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Palatine.

  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Palatine 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 Palatine paves the way for another one to be saved.
