Emmit's Story...
Hi all, my name is Emmitt and I am a 7 year old Shih Tzu. I am super friendly, easy-going, playful and I love to cuddle. My story was a sad one, as I was a lost dog who wound up in the dog pound and came within one day of going to doggie heaven. Fortunately, my foster family bailed me out just in time. After lots of baths and brushings, I look like my old handsome self again. The doctor gave me all kinds of tests and proclaimed that, with the exception of one blind eye, I am very healthy and ready to look for my new permanent family. I am fine around other dogs and birds. Little kids don’t scare me either. I love going for short walks and I behave myself when on a leash. I am a quiet boy but will let you know when I need food or need to go potty. Well, enough about me, tell me about yourself?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Emmit, 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.
