Chewy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Chewy's Story...
Chewy is a unique-looking cutie and a little ham. Though he is very friendly and loving with his foster Mom, at this time he's a one person dog. His personality is similar to that of a Chihuahua -- a little lapdog who loves to be held by his mama, but will nip at anyone else. Chewy is young and seems unexposed to the world. We think that with the right positive person, some basic training and some confidence, he will become less afraid and could even become friendly with strangers.

Chewy loves to play with toys and is good with other dogs, he plays with his Shih Tzu foster sister often. He's quite young, we are guessing about a year, and is very small weighing only 7 pounds. We're not sure of Chewy's breed makeup, but he's a cutie! He has very short legs.

Chewy is fully vetted and neutered with a rabies vaccine, DA2PPV, H3N2 flu vaccine, and Bordatella vaccine, heartworm and fecal tests, and microchip. He is kept on monthly flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative.

Chewy's adoption fee is $250.

Happy Tails Rescue Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit foster-based rescue based in Munster, Indiana. We have no shelter, all of our animals are cared for in loving foster homes until their forever home match is found. All of our animals are fully vetted before adoption, including distemper, rabies, and bordatella vaccines, a heartworm test, fecal test, microchip, and are spayed/neutered. Adoption fees range from $150-$350. If you're interested in meeting one of our animals please fill out an application first. If approved we will then arrange a meet and greet. Happy Tails does not do same day adoptions because we do a short home visit to make sure our animals are being placed in safe environments.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chewy, a Munster Shih Tzu/Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Maltese for sale in Munster, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Maltese dog from a breeder in Munster.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Munster 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 Munster 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/Maltese breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Munster paves the way for another one to be saved.
