Gizmo's Story...
Hi! My name is Gizmo and I’m an adorable little fluffy creature! I don’t want to brag but I think I’m pretty much a perfect pup. Lounging next to my human at a cafe is one of my favorite things to do when it’s warm outside. I’m already potty trained and enjoy laid back lifestyle of snoozing, playing with toys, and medium paced walks. I am currently living with other dogs in my foster home and I enjoy their company, but I would also be fine to be your one and only. I’m working on not hogging the bed and learning “sit”.

I’m what foster mom calls an “epidog”. I’ve had seizures in the past but now I take a pill wrapped in something yummy twice a day. My cuteness is hard to resist so apply now to meet me or email adopt@rescuzillanyc.org for more deets!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gizmo, a Arlington 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 Arlington, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Arlington.

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