This is Maggie, a real Shih Tzu lady. She is 10 years old, but acts like she is 6. She weighs twelve pounds, has kept her girlish figure, and is in very good health. Although she was loved in her previous home Maggie was given to our rescue by her family because they had very busy lives and felt they could not give her the time she deserved. Maggie has a good appetite, likes to go for walks, and is housetrained. She sleeps with her foster mom in bed or sometimes under the bed or on the couch. Maggie LOVES her soft toys – they are her “babies.” She protects them with her front paws and gives a warning growl or two just to remind you that they are hers. She is a very friendly little girl and greets the day by waking you in the morning with a burst of energy and playfulness. Maggie may take a few days to get used to her new home, so she needs patience during her transition. But she is so worth giving a little time, because she will become your best pal.

Maggie’s foster mom would prefer to adopt her to a home where someone is home during the day or part of the day and without children. She would also like her adopters to live within 60 miles of the Twin Cities. Maggie is spayed, up to date with vaccinations, microchipped, and is on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. Her adoption fee is $128.73 which includes MN sales tax. All adopters and their Shih Tzus are invited to attend STRMN’s annual Rescue Reunion that will be held this year on September 16, 2017. If you are interested in this special girl, please fill out an adoption application on our website at Or you can see Maggie and the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting with us from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Minnetonka Petco near Ridgedale the first Saturday of every month.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MAGGIE, a Eden Prairie 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 Eden Prairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Eden Prairie.

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