PATCHES's Story...
Hello, my name is Patches. I'm a male Shih-Tzu mix who is white with black spots and weighs 8.5 lbs.

My foster family came to help some of us dogs get out of the shelter. You can see how sad I was in my picture in my kennel at the shelter. The next day or so after their visit, they came back and claimed me along with my friends - Betty Boop and Mitzy.

I am now neutered, up-to-date on my shots, micro-chipped, and had heartworm and fecal exams - results were negative! I'm eating like a little piggy and have picked up some weight.

What was so wonderful - was how I felt after I came back from the groomer! Before, I was so matted and miserable being so nasty and smelly. When I arrived back at my foster home after grooming. . . I was like a brand new dog. I've put the past behind me and now I am looking forward to a new future. I feel and look wonderful now!

My foster mom was concerned with my eye - as it appears to some that one of my eyes is a little smaller than the other. So, we made a special trip to the vet for an eye examination. The vet gave this report: that my one eye is normal however, one eye appears to be smaller than normal (microphthalmia) with a cataract. The vet suspects early trauma or a congenital birth defect. It doesn't seem to bother me at all -- I'm a happy little guy. It makes me special. :)

I love playing with the other dogs here - especially Coco. She likes to play tug and run in the yard with Mitzy and me. I love it outdoors and sometimes when it's nice I have to be coached to come in. I'd love to have a nice fenced yard and possibly another companion about my size to play tug with??? I love to lay in the sun by the sliding glass door with my buddies. What a wonderful life I have now - but, it would even be better to have a forever family of my very own to spoil me.

I'm crate trained. I do bark at night (for awhile) because I'd rather be with you then in my crate. I am working on my house-training. There are some other male doggies here and I started to mark - so I'm wearing a belly band at times. I don't mind it. I will do my pottying outside - I just need to continue the training process.


It's very obvious that Patches was someone's pet. He is very well adjusted and sweet; however, he was picked up as a stray and not claimed. He is a real delight to foster and is very sweet and lovable.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PATCHES, a Beavercreek Shih Tzu/Old English Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Old English Sheepdog for sale in Beavercreek, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Old English Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Beavercreek.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Beavercreek 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 Beavercreek 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/Old English Sheepdog breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Old English Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Beavercreek paves the way for another one to be saved.
