Puppy's Info...

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

Puppy's Story...
On a drive home from work on a remote back road coming up the mountain, a gentleman saw a small dog on the side of the road. He stopped to rescue this dog and the dog ran down an embankment so the man followed. There was a dog crate broken open with several other small dogs around it. All of these dogs were small, purebred and none were spayed/neutered. It appears that these dogs are the "leftovers" from a breeder and this was the disposal method. Tossed from a moving vehicle and left for dead.
Puppy is estimated to be about 3 yrs. old. He is very shy with people at first, but quickly forms an attachment. He likes to play with small toys and cuddle with stuffed animals. He is great with other dogs and cats, but he needs to be in a home with smaller dogs, because larger dogs frighten him. He is crate trained and is working hard on housetraining. Once he gets to know you, he is very loving and likes to have his ears scratched/massaged.
Puppy has had a short, but rough life and deserves a REAL loving home devoted to loving him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Puppy, a Lake Arrowhead 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 Lake Arrowhead, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Lake Arrowhead.

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