Mercy's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Mercy's Story...
Mercy showed up as a stray at a high kill shelter. She looked pretty bad and had clearly been neglected. No one seemed interested in saving this little girl, so St. Martin's stepped in. Mercy is about 11 to 13 years old. She has a condition called KCS "dry eye," which requires daily medication. She also has some spinal damage which causes her to walk like Charlie Chaplin. When she came to us she had mammory tumors and a very neglected mouth. She has had nine bad teeth extracted, her teeth cleaned and two mammory tumors removed as well as being spayed. She really got a doggie overhaul! Mercy definitely feels better and she shows this by being able to sleep contently and loving to be held and rocked in the rocking chair. Mercy would enjoy a quiet home and her own human lap to lay upon in her golden years. Mercy is spayed, up to date on all vaccines including rabies, and is microchipped. Please email stmartinsanimalrescue@hotmail.com or call 503-857-5047 if you would like to have sweet Mercy be your lap baby.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mercy, a Sheridan 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 Sheridan, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Sheridan.

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