Owen's Story...
Owen is a darling male rat terrier/shih tzu mix puppy born 04/27/12. Owen and his siblings (also available for adoption) came into our rescue program when sadly, their mother was hit by a car. Owen and all this brother’s and sister’s had to be bottle fed, but are now thriving and ready for adoption! Owen is great with other dogs, cats, and children. Owen is up to date on age appropriate shots, micro-chipped, and will be neutered prior to adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Owen, a Baton Rouge Rat Terrier/Shih Tzu puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier/Shih Tzu for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Shih Tzu puppy from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

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