Oscar-NY's Story...
Update 7/23/12: Oscar is about 15 yrs. old now. The likelihood of his ever being adopted is slim. However, he has found true love with his foster dad! Donations for his continuing foster care would be much appreciated.

Now about 12, this poor guy's story is quite sad. He was found outside a shelter in NY stuffed into a small cat carrier, matted from head to toe, and with a large wound on his leg which required staples. He loves to play - and you wouldn't know that the vet estimated him to be 10 years old based on his energy. He gives a little "Oscar the Grouch" protest when you first pick him up and may even snap air if he feels threatened or frightened - but with a knowledgeable owner he is truly a great companion. Oscar can be a bit possessive of his food - it appeared that he didn't get too many regular meals by how thin he was - and will guard his "treasure" until he is finished. He seems to really take to men, but doesn't seem to mind women, teens, other dogs, or cats. Oscar loves the car and is just generally happy being with people.

Oscar is being fostered in Westtown, NY and his asking adoption fee is $125.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oscar-NY, a Edmeston 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 Edmeston, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Edmeston.

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