Jackson's Story...
Jackson is a beautiful Shih-tzu who is approximately 1-2 years old. He is mostly brown with some black and white. He gets along well with other dogs and really likes cats as well, he doesn’t even mind birds! He is a very loving dog and loves to sit in your lap on the sofa and loves to sleep on the bed (he is very still and you won’t notice he is there!). He prefers to do his business on a walk rather than the back yard, so would do well with someone who is willing to walk him twice a day (he doesn’t require long walks though and he is very easy to walk, he does not pull on the lead). He has had no accidents in the house and has been a very pleasant dog to care for. He currently eats a mix of Fromm dry and wet food twice a day and he loves getting treats and playing with toys (especially stuffed animals made for dogs). He is used to being groomed and while he doesn’t really like baths, he will tolerate them. He is all around a very easy going guy just looking for a loving, forever home, preferably with other pets for him to play with!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jackson, a Tampa 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 Tampa, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Tampa.

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