Owen's Story...
What a handsome boy our Shih Tzu mix Owen is! He's a happy and adorable love bug who was turned into our local shelter by his "unforever family". For reasons including him being "too old" and biting at himself (he was infested with fleas...), they requested euthanasia. He's not too old and, in our book, there's no such thing anyway.
Owen fit right in and gets along great with dogs and cats and older children. He loves to be around his family and enjoys short walks.
He's 13 years old and 23 lbs.
Owen has a difficult time with stairs and will do best without too many. He is fine being carried.
He has plenty of pep in his step still and will be a wonderful companion for his new forever family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Owen, a Clayton 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 Clayton, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Clayton.

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