Sugar's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Sugar's Story...
Hi, my name is Sugar and I am as sweet as my name implies. I am an 11 year old Shih Tzu that was surrendered to the Chesapeake Animal Shelter when my owners could no longer care for me. I was then transferred into a foster home due to some medical issues. You see, I had never been spayed so I developed a rather large mammary tumor that was very painful and uncomfortable which meant I wasn’t the easiest to be around. I have since been spayed and the tumor has been removed so now I am feeling much better and I’m ready to find my forever family. Even though there is a possibility that the tumor will grow back, I promise to be a great companion to anyone that will give me the chance.
I am a fun, easy going gal that loves belly rubs, being outside, going for walks, playing with toys, and taking long naps in a big comfy bed. I currently live with 2 mellow dogs my age and we all get along great. I haven’t been around cats in my foster home but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t mind sharing my home with them. My foster mom says that I am a lot of fun to be around and that anyone would be lucky to have me.

The perfect home for me would be an adult-only home or a home with older children. I would like a house full of soft beds, people who like snuggles, and yummy treats! I may be an older gal in need of some special TLC, but doesn’t every dog deserve that when she gets to be my age? Just imagine me greeting you at the door every day with my big brown eyes, and my joyful bark. How can you resist?

Those interested in me should email Before we can arrange a meeting interested applicants must complete an adoption application for approval.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sugar, a Chesapeake 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 Chesapeake, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Chesapeake.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chesapeake 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 Chesapeake 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 Chesapeake paves the way for another one to be saved.
