Dexter's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Dexter's Story...
Dexter’s adoption fee is $350.

Hello, my name is Dexter and I am a 7 year old (just) neutered male Shih Tzu that weighs 11kg and I am up to date with vaccines and micro chipped. Through no fault of my own, I need to find a new forever family. I am happy and cuddly, like to sleep on or beside your bed, get along with other dogs and will let you know when someone is at the door.

My very favourite thing is running around in a nice fenced yard, playing fetch with my squeaky toys. I am really hoping to find an active family who will take me for good walks and play with me. I know basic commands and am still working with my foster mom on boundaries, (I’ve been known to counter surf) so I do need a family that is consistent and will be a little patient with me while I learn your rules. I have oodles of love to give, so if you’re looking for a real cutie to join your active family, please consider me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, a Toronto 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 Toronto, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Toronto.

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