Riley's Story...
This is Riley! He is one of the sweetest pups frolicking this planet! Cuddly, affectionate, smart – this little man has it all! His former mom felt she could not have him any more as she felt he would not housetrain. No wonder, a pup left home alone all day with no one to let him out for bathroom breaks, how could he possibly learn? In his foster home he has so far not had a single accident! Initially, Riley can be a bit timid with strangers. We are looking for a home with no children or older kids, and hopefully another little dog friend to play with. Lots of walks in parks and throughout the neighbourhood are a must. Like so many dogs his size, Riley definitely does not want to end up on a couch for the rest of his life. A recently retired person or couple would be the ideal match for this wonderful boy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Riley, a Okotoks 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 Okotoks, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Okotoks.

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