Angel(4)'s Story...
Angel is a really sweet 10-pound female Shih Tzu born in 2014, with what will one day be a lovely soft non-shedding black and white coat. Angel was handed over to another shelter by her owner. She was suffering from Demodex mange, a yeast infection and various other immune threatening ills; with smelly hairless itchy red skin, raw and bloody from constant scratching, her body swollen and inflamed and what little hair she had was sparse, flea ridden, filthy and matted into dreadlocks. Her little face was covered with gruesome sores, even her tail was black and infected. The shelter quickly realized that Angel was desperately in need of urgent emergency care so they immediately called the Safehouse. In spite of her horrid condition, this absolutely darling little Shih Tzu was wagging her tail and her precious (infected) soulful eyes looked at us with heart wrenching love. Initially, I wrapped her in a soft towel so I could hold her close without hurting her because Angel needed to know she was safe and loved (she is soooo snuggly, she just cuddles right into your arms!). Angel is a typical fun loving, playful Shih Tzu with a friendly loving personality. She receives a medicated rub-down every other day to reduce skin bacteria and yeast and she is eating a good healthy diet with immune strengthening supplements. Every time she looks up at us with those happy eyes and wags and wags that tail she reminds us how forgiving dogs can be. Our dogs are made available for adoption only after they have had a comprehensive physical and dental and receive a clean bill of health. Angel’s future as a normal happy beloved pet has already begun and once she is available for adoption, she will need no special care. Angel is spayed, has a microchip, is current on all vaccines, heartworm and flea/tick preventative, and has had a complete physical and dental. The adoption fee for Angel is $300.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Angel(4), a Homer Glen 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 Homer Glen, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Homer Glen.

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