Tuffy's Story...
Hi, my name is Tuffy! I am a sweet little girl looking for a furever home. My two sisters have already found their homes so now it is my turn. I want you to know a little bit about me. I am a mix of Shitzu, Chihuahua, and Jack Russel Terrier, but the important thing is that I am super cute! I really love to play with my sisters and this really really big puppy in my foster home! He loves me and my sisters so we play with him all the time. They say he is a Treeing Walker Coonhound so he is super big compared to me. But my foster mommy says it makes me well rounded because I can get along with anyone! I definitely love naps as well. As you can see, most of my pictures are when I have just woken up because sleeping is great! I am also learning how to be crate trained and use the potty pads! I am pretty smart if I do say so myself. Now, all I need to do is find my furever family.

I am currently in Macon, GA but I have seen lots of my friends get to go with these super nice people on a bus ride and they told me they were getting to go to their furever families! I sure hope I get to go on a bus ride to my family! You see, there are so many extra doggies down here that we have plenty to spare so I want to let my fur coat be put to good use and find a family up north. I think I would look super cute in a jacket! My adoption fee is $425 and that includes all of my age appropriate vaccinations, deworming and parasite prevention, heartworm prevention, spay/neuter, health certificate, transport, and a microchip! If you think you may want to give me an awesome home then please fill out an adoption application from the website www.fureverafterrescue.org! Hopefully I get to see you soon!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tuffy, a Southbury Shih Tzu/Chihuahua puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Chihuahua for sale in Southbury, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Chihuahua puppy from a breeder in Southbury.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Southbury 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 Southbury 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Southbury paves the way for another one to be saved.
