Rocky's Info...

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

Rocky's Story...
Rocky was a stray found on the service road of I-45. His hair was matted all over his little body. While he was being groomed his rescuers found that one of his legs had rope weaved into the matted hair and appeared he was tied for quite some time.

But this is where the story takes a happy turn!!! This little guy is super loveable and likes to give sloppy kisses. He’s already adjusting nicely in his foster home where he likes to play and is loving nap time on the sofa. He’s quite fond of treats, too! He gets along well with other dogs and is working on crate training.

Lots of love in a pint size package! Rocky is ready for his forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Houston.

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