Jett's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Jett's Story...
Jett is the perfect combination of sweet and fun. An 8 year old Shih Tzu mix, Jett has a mellow disposition and will sit in your lap for hours, but when she wants to play, she runs around, showing off her cute little body as if she's a superstar. (And how appropriate since she was named after the famous singer Joan Jett!) Since Jett has diabetes, she needs a loving and attentive home where she can receive her twice daily insulin shots. If you are ready to give lots of TLC, Jett is ready to rock your world.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jett, a New York 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 New York, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in New York.

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