Sherlock Holmes's Story...
Happy New Year. My name is Sherlock Holmes and I am in search of a new forever home for me. My elderly owner could not continue to care for me so I am looking for a nice home that will be able to care for me forever.. I am a little darlin who loves to give kisses and enjoys snuggling with my other foster dogs and foster mom. I love my foster mom's male friends too and enjoy playing ball with anyone who will throw it and I will bring it back for more tosses. I am housebroken, neutered, and walk well on a leash. I sleep in my crate at night but do whine a bit as I much prefer to sleep in my foster mom's bed with the other dogs. I am the perfect size for apartment living and so far have been as quiet as a mouse in my foster home.I will bark once if someone comes to the door but otherwise am very quiet. I ride very nicely in the car. I am very good natured.

I am up to date on vaccines, negative for Heartworm and Lyme disease and come with a microchip. I promise to give you lots of love! Apply today, don't delay.

Sherlock is being fostered in Natick, MA.

The adoption fee is $400.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sherlock Holmes, a Worcester 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 Worcester, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Worcester.

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