Skipper's Story...
02/25/17 Skipper is a 6 yr old Shih Tzu mix, just under 10 lbs. He is a very sweet boy. He is being treated for heart worms so needs to remain quiet for the next month. At that time he will be rechecked and is expected to be heart worm free. He has dry eye, which does require daily medication. If you are interested in adopting Skipper we would consider fostering him until his heart worm treatment is complete.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skipper, a Burgaw 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 Burgaw, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Burgaw.

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