Josie - ADOPTED's Story...

(Available for adoption within 100 miles of Tallahassee, FL)

6 year old Josie was saved from a puppy mill and is now ready to find her forever home. She is an adorable, tiny girl weighing at just 9 pounds. She is a bit shy at first, but given the chance, she warms up quickly and is a sweet, friendly girl who is eager to learn about her new life as a companion rather than a breeding machine.

Josie is spayed, has had a dental, is current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative and microchipped. She is working on housetraining in her foster home and is learning quickly how to walk on a leash. She is overly interested in cats so probably wouldn't be appropriate for a home that has one, but she will need a fenced yard and at least one other friendly dog in her adoptive home.

Adoption Fee: $250

A copy of the vet records will be provided to adopter at the time of adoption. This dog is fostered in the Tallahassee, FL area and adoption applications will be accepted from individuals living within a 100 mile radius. Live within 100 miles of Tallahassee and think you might be the forever home Josie has been waiting for?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Josie - ADOPTED, a Tallahassee 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 Tallahassee, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Tallahassee.

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