Payton's Story...
Visit for more information or to fill out an application.

Payton is approximately 8 years young and believed to be a Shih-Tzu/Lhaso Apso Mix. He is a small boy and only weighs approximately 8 pounds.

Payton is fully vetted, including his vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, heartworm tested negative, and started on his flea/tick/heartworm preventatives. Payton also recently had a dental.

Payton has been around dogs, both large and small, and did well. He can be bossy and he likes his own space. He would do well with another female dog his size that also like her own space. Payton paid zero attention to the cats and has no issues with them.

Payton is a friendly boy and loves to be close by. He loves to sit on your lap or near you and snuggle in close. Payton has been around kids and did well, however, he does seem to prefer the older ones, so we recommend kids ages 5+years. Payton would love a home where someone is home most of the time and he gets a lot of attention, but he is kennel trained as well as partially house trained (his foster home is giving him a refresher course).

Payton walks well on the leash and will come when you call his name. He is also treat motivated and will sit - his foster home is also working on his other commands as well. Payton never wanders far from you, but does enjoy a fenced in yard to hang out in. Payton is looking for that second chance to find that wonderful home he can retire in.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Payton, a Watertown Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso for sale in Watertown, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso dog from a breeder in Watertown.

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