Facts about Trinket

  • Breed: Shih Tzu/Pug Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Trinket was impounded as a stray at a high kill shelter and no one ever came for her. We saved her and now she is safe. Trinket will need an experienced owner who is a strong pack leader, patient, consistent and will continue her training. She has some resource guarding issues with her food bowl and certain toys. She is receiving training and is showing much improvement. She is about 1 year old, 16 pounds and is friendly with people. She will sit on your lap for pets and she likes to cuddle. She is good with most dogs she knows and needs proper introduction and supervision to new dogs. She does best with calm dogs who are not dominant or a threat because she is a bit alpha with and is still learning social skills with dogs. So she may need to be an only dog or with someone who has experience with alpha dogs. Trinket is young and very energetic/high energy 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. She walks nicely on a leash and enjoys riding in the car. We will not adopt her in a home with young children. We will provide a 2 hour in-home training session with our professional trainer to whomever adopts her.

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.
