Facts about Prince

  • Breed: Shih Tzu Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Prince is an approx. 10-11 years old ShihTzu cross and weighs 12 lbs. He sure doesn't seem his age and has nice clear eyes and loves to go for walks. Prince ended up in rescue when his elderly owner passed away and family members could not take him. Prince had now been neutered, vaccinated, had a dental cleaning and is microchipped; his bloodwork is all within normal range and he had no health issues.
Prince is best in a home without other dogs as he likes the one-on-one interaction with his human. He is vocal so a house would be better than an apartment or condo. Prince adores his people and loves going for walks or cuddling. He has been in a home with cats and ignores them for the most part, does not chase or harass them. We do not have any background on him with small children but because they move quickly and can be noisy and unpredictable we feel it would be better for Prince if he was in an adult only home. He loves having someone home with him and does initially bark when left alone but does settle down after some time.

Prince's adoption fee is $275. For an application for Prince, go to www.happytailsrescue.ca/application-form. Prince is being fostered in St. Catharines..

**applicants must be in a 2 hr driving range from Toronto/Niagara area as we do home visits ourselves with our dogs.

About Happy Tails Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Happy Tails Rescue is a 100% volunteer organization. When we accept a dog into our rescue, it immediately becomes part of a foster family where it is loved and nurtured back to a stable physical and/or mental state and only then will it be adopted to a fully screened, loving family or individual.
Happy Tails is a small rescue where we get to know and love our dogs individually. Foster homes are always much needed as it's so sad to have to turn down a dog in need due to not having a space for them :(

Our Adoption Process...

We get inquiries about dogs posted on our website at www.happytailsrescue.ca. The adoption fees are posted on the individual dog's bio. If the initial inquiry sounds like a possible fit or the family sounds like they might offer a very good home for a specific dog or one as yet to be determined, we send out an application form. The completed application is reviewed to get a sense of whether the desires and life style of the family look like a good match for the dog in question. If they do seem to be a good match at that point, we follow up with a phone conversation and gather more information so that we and share information about the dog in more detail and find out what expectations the adopter may have for the dog that they want to adopt. If it still looks like a match, we check references and set up a home visit where the family meets the dog. If the chemistry is good we arrange to place the dog in the home for a two week trial period . If after the two weeks the dog and the family have connected and both sides feel that the dog is the right one for them , then the adoption is finalized and the adoption fee cheque is cashed so that we have funds to help the next dog in need.
