Rooney's Story...
Rooney is a male grey and white Shih Tzu, 7 years old, neutered, and likes to sleep a lot. Ruther is up to date on all his shots, and appears to be okay but he does have some eye issues (dry eye) that's being treated with medication. He is a sweet, sleepy, and very calm/laid-back boy. He needs an adult home where someone is home all day with him. He is currently in a foster home and his foster mom writes, "Rooney's foster mom Kathleen writes: "I just love him, he is finally feeling like he is safe and loves going outside with my dogs. He has slept thru the night for two nights now. He is so wonderful and his personality is coming out, such a little sweetie pie. It is wonderful having him, we really love him. My boys rush to the edge of the bed in the morning to check on Rooney who sleeps next to my bed on a comfy dog couchbed. They want to get right down and greet him. Love it."

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rooney, a Ocean Ridge 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 Ocean Ridge, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Ocean Ridge.

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