Tux's Story...
Tux is dressed to impress! This handsome little fellow is pleased to meet you and is ready for a night out on the town. Though he may always be in his "formal wear," he also loves to cuddle up on the couch and watch TV. He's a sweet little gentleman who likes squeaky toys and rope toys alike. (He enjoys lying on his back and holding toys up in the air with his front paws!) The little white tip at the end of his "coattails" always seems to be wagging in delight.

Tux is about 2 years old and weighs 15 pounds. We're calling him a terrier mix, but he has a cute little underbite that also reminds us of a shih tzu or lhasa apso. He is both housebroken and crate trained. Tux would do best in an adult-only home or one with teenage children.

If you're interested in adopting Tux, please first read about our adoption process.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tux, a South Plainfield Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu for sale in South Plainfield, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in South Plainfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in South Plainfield 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 South Plainfield 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in South Plainfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
