If you are looking for a laid back guy with great manners then you need look no further. Peter O'Brien, 'Pete', is about a chill as they come. He is approximately 5 years old, weighs about 16 pounds and is just a great all around boy. His potty manners are perfect...he doesn't mess with the other dogs, even a meal time...sleeps in his crate all night but would definitely like the opportunity to sleep on the big bed, and he minds very well. He doesn't bark at every sound or person walking by unless the other dogs in the house do, then he will chime in, of course. He is affectionate without being in your face. He will lay next to you on the couch or in you lap if you put him there and if you throw a toy for him, he will happily go get it for you and would love it if you would play tug with him before throwing it again but if you don't, that's fine too. He does growl a little at the other dogs in the house if he's napping and they get too close but it isn't mean and he's never done more than that but he would probably do best as an only dog. He rides great in the car...walks great on the leash...and, if that's not enough for you, he has great chocolate brown and white markings. So, if Pete sounds like your guy, get your application in come out to PetsMart to meet'll be glad you did!

About DFW Tzus and More Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

DFW Tzus & More Rescue is a charitable, 501(c)3 nonprofit rescue and foster care organization based in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex whose ultimate mission and duty is to match homeless Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apsos, and their furry friends with their ideal, loving, forever home, and give these homeless animals a second chance at a wonderful, new life that they so richly deserve. By working closely with local animal shelters, we hope to prevent the senseless euthanasia of these unfortunate stray or abandoned pets, which have ended up in shelters through no fault of their own.
After providing incoming dogs with immediate medical care, vaccinations, heartworm testing, and spay/neuter, rescued dogs are brought into temporary foster care where they receive the same love and attention as a cherished family pet. Through temperament evaluation, and behavioral modification as needed, we endeavor to insure that each homeless dog finds a loving family and will "come home to stay."
We educate the public and potential adopters about spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm preventatives, regular vet care, good nutrition, regular grooming, microchipping, and just as importantly, "adopting" rather than purchasing from a breeder. By continuing to educate, and constantly searching for caring foster homes, the volunteers of DFW Tzus & More Rescue hope to realize our dream of a day when we are able to rescue and rehome every Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, and all their other small, furry friends in DFW Metroplex shelters.

Our Adoption Process...

1. You must be 21 years old to apply to adopt.
2. Children in the home must be at least 6 years of age, and you must live in the DFW Metroplex.
3. The person applying must be the person who will own and care for the dog.
4. You cannot apply for someone else, or for a dog to give as a gift.
5. Our adoption fees range from $150 - $350.
After submitting an application for the dog you would like to adopt, please come out to one of our “Tzu Reviews” at a noted Petsmart or other specified location. You can find times and locations on our website.
Once we have met with you, reviewed your application, along with vet records on any prior dogs, and helped you select the dog most suitable for your family, we will schedule a time for one of our volunteers to come to your home for a home visit. During this home visit our volunteer will look around your house/apartment and yard, for any potential hazards (such as poisonous house plants, gaps in fences, etc.) that may need to be corrected before you receive your new family member.
