Are you looking for a young, high energy, alert pup? That would be Bailey! He was born in September, 2015 and is a Shih-Tzu / Bichon mix. He is mostly white, with brown and tan-black markings and has luxurious curly hair. He weighs 18 pounds and is in great athletic shape.

Bailey’s main focus involves playing: he loves to chew his toys, will play tug-pull and fetch with you, runs around the house when excited, encouraging you to play, and will do the Shih Tzu 500 in a fenced back yard. He is very affectionate, friendly and loveable, but would benefit from training to help him control some of his impulsiveness. He is a quick learner, and he is responding to word commands in his foster home. In addition to continued training, Bailey needs to have a positive outlet for his energy and would do well in a home with a fenced-in yard and with someone who will participate in his active play. Due to his high energy, this youthful dog should have several fast-paced walks/runs per day, some being at least a mile or two. Bailey is playful but well-behaved at dog parks. He likes both men and women, and older kids. He would not do well with small children, or in a home where small children visit regularly. He is known to tolerate cats. Bailey is housetrained and sleeps at night in his kennel, and goes in when tired or on command. Just say “Kennel up, Bailey!”.

Bailey is in great health, neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption fee is $396.92 ($370.00 adoption fee plus $26.92 sales tax). His foster mom would like his future adopters to live within a 50 mile radius of Rosemount, MN and also encourages them to attend the Shih Tzu Rescue Reunion each year.

To meet Bailey, please complete an adoption application. Or you can also see him 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

BAILEY, a Eden Prairie Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise for sale in Eden Prairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise 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/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Eden Prairie paves the way for another one to be saved.
