Stanley's Story...
Stanley was initially pulled by our rescue group from a high-kill shelter. According to staff, he was picked up from animal control as part of an abandonment case. Stanley was found in a small crate severely matted and covered in urine and feces. When we saw him in the shelter, we immediately knew the little guy needed some serious help. And once we got to meet his bubbly personality despite his condition, we knew he was going to be another ESP baby. From the shelter he went straight to the groomers where we discovered his hair has been acting like a sponge to his urine, his legs were very raw and irritated from it sitting on them. We shaved the little guy down and every since he's been happy as can be!

Stanley is estimated to be around 3 years of age. He's pretty active and loves to play with his toys. He enjoys playing fetch and has everyone laughing when he squeezes a tennis ball that appears to be bigger than his head into his mouth to proudly carry around. Stanley strives for human attention and loves to climb up in your lap and give you kisses and also never turns down a good belly rub. He's quite the character, very curious but not in the trouble making kind of way.

Stanley needs a foster home but also would love a permanent place to stay with a family that can show him what life is all about.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stanley, a Manassas 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 Manassas, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Manassas.

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