Facts about TANK

  • Breed: Shih Tzu
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male

Tank is a GORGEOUS and simply adorable purebred Shih Tzu boy.

He is 9 years young and he came to us having previously been used as a breeding dog. Tank is a little roly-poly oh so happy boy! He loves to lay on his back in his dog bed.

He has not had a lot of time in the house but is willing to please .. so he will need some gentle guidance with house training. With his foster, he sometimes wears a "belly band" in the house.

He gets along with almost everybody he meets. He does well with most other dogs and is OK with some cats. Tank is a very easy-going boy who would enjoy being the center of attention, going for walks and having his very own family.

Tank is a long coated breed, so he will require daily brushing and professional grooming every six to eight weeks.

Tank's adoption fee is 350.00 which includes his neuter, vaccinations, microchip, rabies and professional groom.

About Arizona Shih Tzu and Small Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Arizona Shih Tzu Rescue is 501(c)3 Not For Profit dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of Shih Tzu as well as small purebred and mixed breed dogs. We rescue Shih Tzus as well as other small breeds such as Lhasa Apso, Poodles, Yorkies, Chihuahuas, Maltese, Bichon, Schnauzers, and Terriers. We rescue pure as well as mixed breed dogs of all ages...and have been known to take a bigger dog or two....and a few kittens that strangers have dropped off at our doorstep with no where else to go..

We believe that somewhere there is a home for every dog, but that we have a responsibility to place our dogs into homes that will best meet their needs both physically and emotionally. We look for people with patient and loving hearts, and an understanding of the furbaby mind.

Abuse, neglect, irresponsible breeding, puppy mills, financial difficulties, changes in family circumstances, births, illness and death of guardians are all contributors to the large population of homeless dogs and some of the reasons we find so many furbabies in shelters and rescue groups. Look at all those little faces on our web site and then ask yourself, "Why should I adopt a rescued dog?"

We are also committed to educating potential adopters about the importance of ethical, responsible, and humane pet guardianship. We have the unique ability to train 'littles' that are deemed untrainable. We also provide grooming services and boarding.

We are a Private, Not for Profit, Foster and Volunteer based Rescue. We do not have a physical brick and mortar building, so we do not have paid Staff.

Everything we are able to do is made possible by our volunteers. Volunteers who donate their time to foster, visit, clean, feed, play and/or walk our rescue "kids". We also are able to rescue solely because of the money that comes in the form of Adoption fees and your donations. Our adoption fees and donations go directly back into the rescue. It is with this money that we are able to rescue the next little one that finds him or herself without a home.

And for that we are grateful to you.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a Not for Profit, foster and volunteer based private rescue which means we do not have a brick and mortar building to visit our rescue kids.

All of our rescues live with their foster family to provide a safe and quiet family life which in turn makes it easier for them to transition into their forever homes. They receive love and attention, learn how to cohabitate with other dogs and sometimes cats, house training, medical care (if needed), grooming etc.

We process all of our applications to be sure to match up the right family with each of our rescues. Once a match is found, we contact you right away, and set up a meet and greet

We have Meet and Greets at Roadrunner Park located at 32nd Street and Cactus conveniently located right off State Route 51 in Phoenix. We work with your schedule, so meetings are done 7 days a week.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vet check, all vaccinations, dental (if needed) professional groom and micro chip. They can range anywhere from $ 75.00 to $600.00.

Applications are sent to all adoption inquiries within the same day the request is received. After completed, please return and your request will be submitted for review as sometimes we receive several requests for the same dog and we want to be sure that we find the best match. Please allow us 3 business days to verify your references, home check and of course a Meet and Greet with all members of the family (2 and 4 legged!)
