Ernie's Story...
Ernie's adoption fee is $300.

Hi - my name is Ernie and I am a 3 yr. old black and white Shih Tzu. I weigh around 19 pounds and am neutered, up to date on vaccines and micro chipped. My foster mom says that I am a real cuddly lovebug! I love to follow you around the house and be by your side wherever you may be (even when you are in the shower)! I am housebroken, but once in awhile if I have to go potty real bad and you are not paying attention to me, or you’re not home for a long period of time then I will go potty in the house which embarrasses me to do. I will sleep in a doggie bed, by your side on the couch and if you let me I love to sleep in bed with you. My foster mom says that I am so much better then a hot water bottle to keep you cozy warm at night.

My little dog buddy at my foster home and I love to play together, and though I will bark at strange dogs, I'm not aggressive. I also bark a bit when I meet new people, but if they let me come to them first and smell them, I am fine. I will play with toys and go fetch them but sometimes I forget to bring them back to you (that way you get a workout too!).I get a little anxious while my meals are being prepared because I can’t wait to eat!

To love and tenderly care for me is all I ask from you, and I would be so grateful and loving and promise to be your best friend 4ever!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ernie, a Toronto 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 Toronto, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Toronto.

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