Muffin's Story...
Muffin - ID#A095704: I am a female black and white Shih Tzu. My age is unknown. I have been at the shelter since February 15, 2012.

Muffin is an amazing special needs Shih Tzu who is looking for a kindhearted and loving person to call her own. Muffin is an older gal who is just a tad bit overweight. OK she's a lot overweight, but that doesn't stop her from waddling behind you like a chubby little shadow. Muffin has some medical conditions, but they are all very manageable. First of all, she needs some regular (easy) exercise to help tighten those abs. Summer is right around the corner, you know. Muffin also has some eye issues common in Shih Tzu's, but medicated eye drops are greatly helping her. Because Muffin was severely matted when she arrived at the shelter, she had developed a yeast infection on her skin, but medicated shampoo and antibiotics are clearing it right up. Pretty soon she will have a shiny coat to show off to everyone. Muffin is potty trained and will do a little jig when she needs to go outside. She just needs some help cleaning her lady parts after because she can't reach them anymore. =( I know Muffin sounds like a lot of work, but honestly it's not time consuming and the unconditional love she gives is priceless. Please consider opening you home and heart to this little ball of (chub) love. Muffin's ID number is A095704 She has been available to adopt/foster/rescue since February 25, 2012. When you call about me, please make sure you use my ID number. Names can get confusing, but numbers don't. Can't wait to meet you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Muffin, a Yuba City 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 Yuba City, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Yuba City.

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