Randy's Info...

I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Randy's Story...
Meet Randy! He is a 3 year old Shih Tzu mix who weighs about 10 lbs. He's quite the shaggy dog. Randy is ready for his new beginning and his forever home. He is a very friendly dog who walks around on his hind legs in hopes that his foster mom will pet him. He loves his toys and likes to carry them around with him, he also walks well on leash. Randy may have been mistreated in the past, and he will need training and consistency in his forever home. We are recommending an adult only home.

We have gotten to know Randy a little further and while he is extremely friendly, he also has some issues that will need to be addressed. Randy has shown signs of what may be PTSD, and on occasion he has changed his attention seeking tail wagging demeanor into what appears to be unprovoked aggression. His foster mom has witnessed this a few times in the past few weeks and we are still evaluating him to attempt to determine triggers, causes, and try to find a solution. This aggression changes back into the loving attention seeking dog within seconds. Randy has had a tough life and we are doing our best to help him be a happy well rounded dog. He will need an adopter who has experience with dogs and who is willing to give him the structure and training that he needs, as well as consulting with a trainer or behaviorist. Randy has extreme potential to be the happy dog that he is 99% of the time 100% of the time!

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Randy, a Worcester Shih Tzu/Havanese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Havanese for sale in Worcester, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Havanese dog from a breeder in Worcester.

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