Kitty's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Kitty's Story...
Kitty came to us from another rescue who ended up with too many dogs after a puppy mill pull. She is a full breed shih tzu and about as sweet as can be. We think that she is only 1 - 2 years old. That one picture of her in the crate? That's what she looked like when she came into rescue. Honestly, I couldn't tell one end from the other. As you can see, she cleans up very nicely and let me tell you that Miss Kitty is a perfect little dog. She is not fearful, she loves to be with her person, but isn't obnoxious about it. She is as cute as a button. Kitty weighs 12 pounds so is small enough to sit on your lap, sleep in your bed and to take along on drives around town or vacation. Looking at the condition that she was in, it's amazing to me that she is so, so wonderful, but she is. You just have to meet this little lamb. We use wee wee pads and a doggie door. Kitty appears to be using both here.



The adoption fee for Kitty is $200. Each of our dogs is up to date on all shots, including rabies, spayed or neutered, microchipped, fecal tested for internal parasites, treated if necessary, tested for heartworm, treated if necessary, on heartworm preventative and we also take care of dentals or any other medical needs they may have.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kitty, a House Springs 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 House Springs, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in House Springs.

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