Pogo's Story...


Hi, my name is Pogo. I am an alert, lively, little dog. I am not hyper but I am happy! I am a small, mostly gray, wonderful, 4 month male Shih tzu. I am happy, loving, well adjusted and will make an awesome companion. I am in a foster home with other dogs, cats and people and I do GREAT!

Please, get your application in so you get approved and then you can come meet me and adopt me for your very own! A fenced yard would be nice so I can run and exercise and go potty but if you have had a dog before for a long time with no fence, you may qualify....submit your app and let's see if we are a match!

HERE IS WHAT THE INTERNET SAYS ABOUT THE BREED: The gentle loyal Shih-Tzu makes friends easily and responds well to consistent patient training. They make a very alert watch dog. Courageous and clever. Playful and spunky, this affectionate little dog likes to be with people and are generally good with other pets. Some can be difficult to housebreak. The Shih Tzu needs all of the humans in the house to be pack leader, with the rules of the house made consistently clear. Owners who allow their dogs to take over may find them to be snappish if they are surprised or peeved. Because of this dogs small size and it's adorable face, they commonly develop Small Dog Syndrome, human induced behaviors where the dog believes he is the boss of humans. This causes a varying degree of behavioral issues, such as, but not limited to separation anxiety, guarding, growling, snapping, and even biting. They may become untrustworthy with children and sometimes adults, as they try and tell the humans what THEY want THEM to do. They will be obstinate as they take their stand and defend their top position in the pack. They may bark obsessively as they try and TELL you what they want. These behaviors are NOT Shih Tzu traits, but rather behaviors brought on by the way they are treated by people around them. Give this dog rules, and limits to what they are and are not allowed to do. Be their firm, stable, consistent pack leader. Take them for daily pack walks to burn mental and physical energy. Their temperament will improve for the better, and you will bring out the sweet, trustworthy dog in them.

    Why Adoption is a Great Option

    Pogo, a Taylor Mill Shih Tzu puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Taylor Mill, or seeking a Shih Tzu puppy from a breeder in Taylor Mill.

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