Cuddles(2) & Baby(5)'s Story...
What could possibly be better than a quiet, well mannered Shih Tzu? . . . Why . . . Two quiet, well-mannered Shih Tzu!! Meet Baby(5) and her sister, Cuddles(2); two adorable tail-wagging sweethearts (the 5 and 2 are just for our record keeping). Each girl has a beautiful non-shedding cream and tan coat and weighs 14 pounds; Baby is a tri-color with one blue eye and one brown eye. They arrived at the Safehouse on 05/04/2017 along with five of their brothers and sisters. Their owner was unable to care for so many dogs. Based on the known ages of some of their brothers and sisters, we are guessing that the girls were born in 2010. Darling, playful and irresistible, these precious well-bred Shih Tzu have lived a quiet sheltered life with many other doggy companions and are quite shy around people. Lively and friendly, Cuddles is the more outgoing of the two, always rolling over for tummy rubs, checking out the toy box, exploring the big yard, curious about everything; Baby, is quieter, just as friendly but more reserved, she prefers to hold back until Cuddles sends the “all-clear” and then she joins in on the snuggles. The girls are housetrained to wee-wee pads and are doing very well adjusting to “potty outside”. Having never worn a collar or harness, they do not know how to walk on leash; since all dogs need healthy exercise, going for walks will be one of the first learning experiences to be shared with their new family. They get along with small dogs, after all they have lived with their many brothers and sisters all their lives. More than likely, they would also do well with cats. A home with young children would be too overwhelming, but the calm attention of older children would definitely be welcome. Baby and Cuddles are looking for a family that can appreciate the double reward of sharing their hearts and home with these special girls; sisters, partners, pals, neither complete without the other and we will not separate them. Healthy and well behaved, both girls are spayed, microchipped, current on all vaccines, heartworm and flea/tick preventative, and have had a complete physical and dental. Their combined adoption fee is $350. These girls must be adopted together; they have formed a bond that we will not break.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cuddles(2) & Baby(5), a Homer Glen 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 Homer Glen, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Homer Glen.

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