Sophie's Story...
Sophie is a younger (Maybe 2-3 years old?) Shih Tzu.

Sophie was found on the side of the road after being hit by a car. A wonderful woman stopped and scooped her up. There was no telling if she was going to live or not. She spend days in the ER with a broken pelvis. Sophie's "family" was located, but unfortunately they did not want her back. How anybody could abandon a sweet, little dog like Sophie is beyond us. We were contacted by a rescue in New Mexico asking if we could take her here in CO and get her the medical attention she needed. We were able to set up an emergency transport to get her here, and she went straight to our specialist. After taking more x rays and many more exams, it was determined that her injuries would heal on their own, and we just had to keep her immobile and on pain pills for a few month....well now it has been a few months.

Sophie is almost back to 100%! She goes for walks with her foster mom, plays with balls (loves fetch) and is the happiest, little pain free girl. She may never be "perfect" and may always run with a little quirk, but she is healed, not in pain, and ready to find her forever home. Sophie is truly one of a kind with the most amazing personality. She loves to follow her foster mom all around the house, hang out with the other dogs, and just be a happy little dog. Sophie's favorite activity is going for walks, and then spending the rest of the day snuggled up to her foster mom. She has the perfect, typical Shih Tzu personality. Sophie may have had an incredibly rough start to life, but she doesn't let that hold her back at all. She is so special and needs the most special forever home. Someone who can love her unconditionally, and NEVER dump her on the side of the road again.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophie, a Boulder 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 Boulder, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Boulder.

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