Facts about Trinket

  • Breed: Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Trinket was impounded at a high kill shelter where no one wanted her because she had cherry eye. We saved her and now she is safe. She had surgery to repair her cherry eye. She is all healed up and doing great. Trinket will need an experienced owner who is patient, consistent and will continue her training. She has some resource guarding issues with her food bowl and certain toys and will need a strong pack leader. She is receiving training and is showing much improvement. She is about 10 months old, 15 pounds and is good with other dogs. We believe she is mixed with Shih Tzu and may have some Pug/Terrier in her. Trinket is young and energetic and will need someone who has the time to train and exercise her. She listens very well, is eager to please and is very responsive to training. We will not adopt her in a home with young children.

About Smooch Pooch Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a not-for-profit animal rescue organization. We rescue dogs from high kill shelters, many of them the day they are to be euthanized and give them a second chance at life. We also rescue stray dogs and abandoned animals and find loving homes for them.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have an actual facility. Our dogs are in foster homes until their forever homes are found. We usually hold our adoption events at Petco 2-3 Saturdays a month from 1:30pm-4pm. Please contact us for our schedule and if you would like to meet one of our dogs. Please keep in mind our schedule changes from time to time so please contact us directly to confirm, NOT Petco.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in our adoption process is to complete an adoption application on our main website prior to coming to meet the animal(s) you are interested in. The application can be found at www.smoochpoochrescue.com and will give us an idea if the animal will be a good match for you, your family and lifestyle. We also require an adoption contract, adoption fee and home visit. We DO NOT operate on a first come basis but rather the best suited home for our animals.
