ANGELpending's Story...
In addition to the following profile for this dog, please first read the Adoption Information at to understand the process, requirements and timeline for adoption. An adoption application can also be found in the Adoption Info section. If, after reading that information, you have any questions, please submit your question via e-mail and it will be answered. Please do not request a phone call. A personal phone call will only be made when an adoption application has been submitted and the foster parent wishes to consider the application. Thank you!

Angel is a lively 9 pound, 2 year old girl who can be very protective and precocious one minute, and gentle and cuddly with you the next. She definitively has an alpha personality; she runs the show, protects you from approaching strangers, and is especially defensive towards other bigger dogs. What Angel needs most is a strong leader who will teach her positive behaviors, and commit to taking her to professional training classes or sessions with a personal trainer to deal with some behavior issues. When she is an only dog or with another small playful dog in the home, she is wonderful! She will curl up in your lap and give you lots of kisses. At night she must be touching you while she sleeps, and you will wake up to the sweetest little face! Lots of good exercise is a must for her, with continued leash training. Angel has become quite playful with soft toys, and now loves to chase after her balls down the halls, and plush animals as big as she is! Her aggressive behavior escalates when her playful brother is present, and her playfulness turns into more of a defensive, controlling behavior. Therefore, it would be best to place her in a home with no other dog, unless that dog is already a strong leader and a very confident dog. Such a personality gives off an energy to Angel that “tells her” that she will NOT be able to take control and be aggressive. The other dog will basically keep Angel’s negative behavior in check.

Her house training is excellent when following a set routine for going outside. Currently she goes out faithfully in the morning on her early morning walk, at lunch on her noon walk, at 5 p.m. for her after dinner walk, and finally at 8 p.m. for her before bed walk. Angel will not do well being kenneled since she has never been kenneled in her life, so her adopters must be okay with her having free reign of the house. She needs to be in a home where she is not left alone all day and where she can have vigorous activity every day. If her owner works outside the home, they must be able to come home for lunch, so she can get outside and get some exercise. She is a healthy and happy Angel!

Angel is spayed, current on vaccinations, microchipped and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. Her adoption fee is $370.00 plus $26.92 sales tax for a total of $396.92. Her foster mom would like her adopters to live within 45 miles of Bloomington, MN and be willing to attend the Shih Tzu Rescue Reunion the third Saturday in September each year.

To meet Angel, please complete an adoption application. Or you can also see her and the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting with us from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Minnetonka Petco near Ridgedale the first Saturday of every month.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ANGELpending, a Eden Prairie 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 Eden Prairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Eden Prairie.

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