ZURI's Story...
ZURI is a female Poodle/shih tzu mix about 17 lbs and about 3 yrs old. She is an energetic girl who loves to go outside and run and play. She is good with other dogs and is housebroken.

ZURI is skittish when first meeting people. She is especially afraid of men and will bark aggressively at them if they are standing up. The best way to greet her is to come down to her level and to let her sniff you. She will let you know when she is ready to be petted. Once she has accepted you, she will snuggle and love you. Because of her skittishness, we would recommend a home without small children who might startle ZURI. Men in the home would need patience for her to come around to trusting them.

ZURI is currently being fostered in HILLSBOROUGH county. To learn more about adopting her, go to www.coastalpoodlerescue.org/poodles/poodledetail.cfm?dogID=1645

APPLICATIONS ARE ACCEPTED ONLY FROM FULL/PART-TIME RESIDENTS OF FLORIDA AS A HOME VISIT IS REQUIRED; NO EXCEPTIONS. IF YOU DO NOT LIVE IN FLORIDA, PLEASE LOOK FOR RESCUE GROUPS IN YOUR HOME STATE. WE APPRECIATE YOUR COOPERATION.

Can't adopt right now? Consider becoming a foster home for a rescue dog; it's temporary, but very fulfilling and your only cost is their food! Fill out a volunteer application from our website at www.coastalpoodlerescue.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ZURI, a Melbourne Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu for sale in Melbourne, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Melbourne.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Melbourne 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 Melbourne 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 Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Melbourne paves the way for another one to be saved.
