Duchess's Story...
Duchess is a 2 year old Shih Tzu that The Grace Foundation rescued after she was found as a stray in Stockton. She is a very sweet and loving little girl. Duchess loves attention from people and gets along well with other dogs. At some point in her life, Duchess injured her back and can no longer bend her back legs. This old injury does not hurt her or impact her health. It simply puts a more wiggle in her walk. Despite her disability Duchess is a happy little girl that loves to play.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duchess, a El Dorado Hills 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 El Dorado Hills, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in El Dorado Hills.

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