Phoenix's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Phoenix's Story...
Phoenix – male, vet checked, vaccinated, dewormed, neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested (-), ~12lbs, ~3yrs, Terrier/Shih Tzu type mix.

Phoenix’s owner has a terminal illness and is very sadly no longer able to care for him.


Phoenix has just been groomed and has a very soft, wavy but cotton like coat. He will require a quick daily brushing to keep his coat free of painful mats and tangles. He is minimal shedding (but not non-shedding) so he may be ideal for allergy sufferers.

Phoenix is a lovely, social and energetic young dog. He is good with other dogs, cats and respectful children of any age. Phoenix has previously lived with other dogs and cats and could go to a home with either or on his own. He is house trained and crate trained. Phoenix listens well but could use a brush up on his training but knows basic commands. With a little effort he can likely develop a very good recall for off leash time at the parks! He is improving his leash manners and working on not jumping up on everyone that he meets. His family will need to understand that Phoenix is a little out of sorts since his owner entered long term care so his general training and routine has somewhat gone to the wayside. He is getting him back in to a routine while in foster care and it seems to be coming along with ease, we feel that when his new family takes over he will thrive even further. Phoenix is a loving and loyal little guy, he’d be great for a family looking for an active but smaller more compact dog. He’d be thrilled to accompany you to work or on walks to school to drop off and pick up the kids. He’s smaller but at 15lbs hardy enough to go for long hikes at the cottage and snuggle up in the evening. Phoenix would love to find his forever family that can give him daily exercise, routine and regular grooming – if this is you please fill out an Adoption Application. Phoenix would really prefer a house with a fenced yard to play in.

If you are interested in being considered to adopt a pet please submit a 4 Legged Love Adoption Application. An application must be submitted before an appointment can be made to meet/adopt a pet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Phoenix, a Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA 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/Etobicoke/GTA 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toronto/Etobicoke/GTA paves the way for another one to be saved.
