Butch's Story...
Meet Butch, the senior Shih tzu. Butch is estimated to be about 8 y/o and in HORRIBLE condition when first brought into the pound. The day after intake he just laid in his kennel and didn’t move. His head barely lifted off the cage bottom. After some canned food and puppy food Butch was up moving around and was smothering anyone who had a spare minute to visit him, with love. The day before his stray hold was up, a lady came in and identified him as her dog who had been missing for over a year. She soon left and never returned. So, again, Butch just sat there waiting on her to come back. Butch deserves to live out his days. He deserves a second chance! Please help Butch find his furever home. We rescued him from the shelter and he is now safe.

Butch's eyes don't create tears so he needs drops in his eyes in the morning & evening. The drops are not very expensive but he will need them for the rest of his life. Please don't let this small issue keep you from adopting sweet Butch.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Butch, a Sparta Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso for sale in Sparta, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso dog from a breeder in Sparta.

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