Howard's Story...
Hi! My name is Howard! I am a 2 year old, male, Shih tzu mix. I was rescued from OC Shelter on February 17th. I had two cherry eyes that needed to be reapired. A cherry eye is a common congenital eye defect in various dog breeds where the gland of the third eyelid known as the nicitating membrane prolapses and becomes visible. This usually keeps pups from being adopted in the shelter because most do not know it is easy to fix with surgery. I am all fixed up now and ready to find my family. I am very friendly and love people. I like to play chase, toys and I am good for my baths. If you would like a spunky, kissable guy like me, come check me out!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Howard, a Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Mission Viejo.

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