Paisie & Maxie's Story...
Paisie and Maxie are a 14-year-old female Pomeranian and her 10-year-old son the Shih Tzu/Pomeranian-hybrid (Shiranian) looking for a loving guardian – preferably together. Volunteers at the Save-A-Pet shelter say these two tiny dogs have huge personalities. Maxie loves to run like crazy in the play yards to the point where the sides of his body touch the ground when he's running in circles. He and his mom Paisie love to play and play with each other. They are a hoot to watch and someone will be lucky to enjoy them together. Sadly their human had Alzheimer's disease and could no longer care for them. Knowing they love elderly people, volunteers have brought them on nursing home visits, and they’ve also visited with older children as part of the local youth explorer’s group. They seem to get along with other dogs just fine, and have previously lived with cats. To meet and possibly adopt Paisie and Maxie, please contact the Save-A-Pet shelter at adoptions@saveapetil.org or 847.740.7788. Their adoption fee of $250 as a pair benefits the rescued dogs of Save-A-Pet, or only $50 for the pair through the SAP senior to senior program. They are healthy, de-wormed, neutered/spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative. You can meet Maxie and Paisie and all the other Save-A-Pet residents at the adoption center at 31664 N. Fairfield Rd., in Grayslake, Illinois, on Monday and Friday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm, Thursday from 1:00 to 8:00 pm, or Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Paisie & Maxie, a Chicago Pomeranian/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pomeranian/Shih Tzu for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Pomeranian/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Pomeranian/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Pomeranian/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
