Kevin's Story...
Kevin is a 5 yr old male Shih poo.
He was rescued by his current owners 2.5 yrs ago when his elderly owner couldn't continue to care for him. He is a playful dog who loves lots of attention and is very easy going.
He is very good with older kids who understand how to be gentle with a dog. He gets nervous around little kids and toddlers.
Kevin currently is taken outside on a leash to use the bathroom. He doesn't let you know when he needs to go potty other than coming to you and staring at you but long as you take him out regularly it isn't a problem.
His previous owner had another dog that he was real buddies with so we suspect that he would do well in a home with other dogs. He has done well with other dogs when we have been at the dog park and other people's homes. He definitely feels more comfortable with dogs his size or smaller but has done well around bigger dogs too. It just takes him some time to not be scared.
He eats Purina Beyond dogfood to prevent dry skin and has recently been groomed. He gets fed in the morning and eats leisurely throughout the day. He will not over eat. His food and water are picked up in the early evening and put out again in the morning.
He does not like to be kenneled and sleeps under our bed at night. He will not chew or scratch unless confined.
He will often bark when a visitor arrives but its because he's excited to see someone new, not because he is defensive or scared. He is really silly because he will sometimes bark as people leave the house too, like he is complaining that you are leaving him.
Overall he is a very friendly, easy going dog that would make a great pet for a variety of different families. He is up to date on all vaccines as of January 2017 and is microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kevin, a st peters Shih Tzu/Poodle (Standard) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Poodle (Standard) for sale in st peters, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Poodle (Standard) dog from a breeder in st peters.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in st peters 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 st peters 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/Poodle (Standard) breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Poodle (Standard) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in st peters paves the way for another one to be saved.
