Emmett's Story...
Emmett is a 3 year old Shih Tzu who was rescued from an abusive situation which caused him to lose an eye. His left eye was removed and he has limited vision in his right eye. He will require eye drops 2 times a day for the rest of his life. He gets along very well with his limited vision which will continue to improve, but he will never have full sight. In spite of that, he is a lovable, playful, handsome boy. He is house trained and walks well on a leash. He is a funny little guy. If you don’t get him his food quick enough he will bark at you until he gets it. He is s very loveable little guy who gets along well with cats as well as all of the dogs here at the rescue. Please open your hearts and homes to this little guy who suffered so much before he was rescued, and is due for a change of luck.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Emmett, a Tavares 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 Tavares, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Tavares.

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