Sammie is a little doll who was born without his front right leg, but he does not ask for any sympathy or special treatment. No, Sir! He gets around just fine, thank you and will even wave his little stump at you. Sammie is handi-capable, no doubt about it. He has a great little personality and is not defined by what he doesn't have... it's just a leg, after all, and because he never had it, he just doesn't miss it. This is one little determined sweetheart! He handlers report that he is the fastest of all the SAFE dogs!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sammie, a Princeton 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 Princeton, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Princeton.

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