Esther's Story...
Little Shih Tzu Esther is looking for a soft place to land for the holidays and forever. She is 11 year old. She landed pretty hard somewhere along the line because she has a broken jaw. X-rays show too much bone loss to wire the jaw. It hangs a little on the right side. She is not in pain and can eat like a champ. Tail going constantly. Contact for information on how to adopt Esther.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Esther, a Salem 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 Salem, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Salem.

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