MILLS's Story...
Mills is the perfect little pup. He gets along with dogs, cats and children. He's super sweet and has the most amazing personality. He loves to go for a walk, he loves to cuddle, he loves to go for a ride in the car and he loves to be held. He doesn't meet a stranger, he loves everyone. He's just a happy little guy that has a true zest for life. Mills has a medium energy level; he likes to play and he likes to nap. He's housebroken, crate trained and walks great on leash. He's the perfect companion for a loving family or individual with a relaxed-semi active lifestyle.

Mills has a few medical issues. He has a slightly enlarged heart and a mild heart murmur; our vet tells us that the murmur is not uncommon for his breed and is nothing to be worried about. He also has luxating patellas in his hind legs (Grade 1 - the patella can be manually luxated but returns to the normal position when released). Fortunately, his legs don't require surgery and they don't seem to bother him or slow him down. It is recommended that he take a joint supplement. Mills tested positive for heartworms and we have chosen to treat him with the 'slow-kill' method (monthly heartgard and doxycycline every other month for four months); he should be heartworm negative in 8-16 months. Mills needs a family that will continue his treatment and understands that heartworms are not a death sentence. We will provide his adopters with an eight-month supply of Heartgard. Mills' blood work is all normal and showed that his kidney and liver functions are great.

We think Mills is a Poodle/Shih Tzu mix. He's approximately 8 years old and weighs 13 lbs. His shots are up to date through July 2017; he's neutered and taking monthly flea/tick/heartworm prevention. His adoption fee is $150. If you'd like to meet Mills, complete an Application at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MILLS, a Sumter Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu for sale in Sumter, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Sumter.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sumter 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 Sumter 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 Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sumter paves the way for another one to be saved.
