Sammy's Story...

Oh my paws! This most adorable little dog is Sammy, probably a Shih Tzu/ Schnauzer mix. SAMMY is about 2 years old, and underweight at 5.6 pounds so he's at Camp Kay's getting plumped up. SAMMY is working on house training with his foster and uses the doggy door. Believe it or, this little boy apparently HATES to have his picture taken, but we think he's pretty darn photogenic! If you would like to make Sammy part of your family, please fill out an application online at and include his name at the top.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sammy, a Tijeras Shih Tzu/Schnauzer (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Schnauzer (Miniature) for sale in Tijeras, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Tijeras.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tijeras 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 Tijeras 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/Schnauzer (Miniature) breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Schnauzer (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tijeras paves the way for another one to be saved.
