Sydney's Story...
Little Sydney is a release from an Indiana commercial breeding facility and has been in rescue for about three years. A 12lb black and white Shih Tzu, Sydney continues to be a watcher, rather than a player. She is approx. nine years old. She is very shy and does not come when called. She does not enjoy being picked up or held, but does love to be talked to in a silly voice. She will animate then and slap her little front paws on the floor and do the play bow. Sydney has her friends that she will snuggle with and loves to lay beside the heater in the winter. She does have very oily skin and fur, but it is being managed by special shampoo. She gets eye drops twice a day for mucus buildup. This is not her favorite event and she will do almost anything to get out of it..:)) Sydney does not do stairs and has short little legs. She is not house trained and really does not like to go outside and needs to be carried into the yard. A fence is a must. Sydney's new family must be willing to be patient and without expectations for her. She is who she is and may never be comfortable being held. If interested in Sydney, go to and submit an application. NO PHONE CALLS!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sydney, a Homer 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 Homer, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Homer.

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