King's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

King's Story...
King is a 7 month old purebred "chocolate ice" colored Shih Tzu. He was surrendered when his owner died and was completely matted and unsocialized. King is very loving but enjoys a quiet home with no children to run around and scare him. He does really well with other dogs. King is also learning to trust being held and hopefully soon will realize that humans are a lot of fun and not so scary. He's most happy running around in the yard and is my constant shadow. King is a darling little guy and is quickly stealing my heart so we are going to make sure he goes to a home where he will be most happy. Email for an application

Why Adoption is a Great Option

King, a Metairie 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 Metairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Metairie.

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