Edgar's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Edgar's Story...
Edgar was part of a Superstorm Sandy rescue we took part in. When he was found wandering around on Long Island, he was a mess and it was heartbreaking. It was clear that he had neglected skin issues that left him not only balding but suffering from scrapes and cuts due to his constant scratching. Despite all the discomfort he was going through, you could tell he was a loving and friendly, sweet boy.

After months of treatment, his skin is almost 100% better, his hair is growing back nicely, and he is the happiest dog around! He absolutely loves walking outside. Also, his nose is the softest nose in the world.
He is looking for someone who has some understanding about allergies in dogs, who can continue his strict diet and bathing needs, because this will either maintain or trigger his problems. He does get along with other dogs, however we recommend him being the only pet in the household as he does have some issues with sharing his food and toys.
We believe he was born around 2009.

We really appreciate your wanting to give a shelter animal a home and encourage you to search for just the right pet.

Each and every animal here is very special to us. We are dedicated to finding each one just the right home. So for some cats and dogs, that means a much longer stay - as sometimes they are not as outgoing, pretty or have as perfect manners as they could. And because we don't "dispose" of them for this, our cost for keeping them healthy and becoming better companions is high.

Our one and only location is:
306 East 59th Street (between 1st & 2nd Avenue) in Manhattan.
Our adoption hours are 7 days a week, 10:30AM - 4:00PM.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Edgar, a New York 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 New York, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in New York.

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