Meet Potter! Potter is healthy 8-year old, 17-pound, black & white neutered male Shih Tzu, and his adoption fee is $475. He was named after the character “Harry Potter”, as he has a distinguished lightning bolt down the center of his face like Harry Potter's scar.

Potter is a sweet special boy seeking a loving safe forever home. Potter's owner passed away and he was surrendered to a very over crowded shelter in CA facing euthanasia. 6dogrees Rescue saved Potter to bring him to Seattle to find his forever home.

Potter is adorable, sweet, loving and very affectionate. He has low energy would make a terrific friend for someone seeking company of a loving pet that enjoys handing out around the house.

Potter was terribly stained, matted and discolored when we saved him. He is now looking quite dapper with his new haircut. He is considered hypoallergenic and will require routine professional grooming every 6-8 weeks. Potter enjoys a good meal (he is a good eater), and he will require a grain-free to keep him healthy and his coat beautiful and soft food as he is missing several of his teeth. Potter is crate trained, and will sleep snuggled in his crate all night without a peep.
Potter does not bark nor shed and would be a great home, apartment or condo dog. A fully constructed fenced yard is required if a homeowner. Potter is a rescue dog, and rescue dogs require routine and stability. Please be prepared for a lifelong commitment before applying. Ideally, Potter should be pottied every 4 to 5 hours (he is learning about potty training). Dogs cannot be left alone for 8 hours per day. Home check and plan must be carefully thought out and presented at time of interview.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

"Potter", a Seattle 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 Seattle, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Seattle.

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