Chelsea's Story...
Hi there! My name is Chelsea and I am 14 years old. You would never know I am an old lady! I have a little arthritis, but I like to run and carry toys and balls in my mouth. I still have life in me, that’s for sure! I am about 17lbs and I am a shihtzu mix. I am totally potty trained and I like to ride in the car. My favorite thing is to be in someone’s lap. I get kind of jealous of other dogs, though. I am too old to deal with small children, so please keep them away from me! Cats are fun to bother but I don’t like it when they swipe at me. I recently got all of my teeth cleaned and that makes my foster mom happy so when I give her kisses my breath is minty fresh. I also had a hernia in my belly but that got fixed too! I was adopted when I was six years old from a shelter but then when I turned 14, the family I was with took me back to the shelter! Can you believe that? Well, thankfully, St. Martin’s took me in and got me all fixed up and they tell me that I am worth having a family of my own again. I agree! I am spayed, up to date on all vaccines including rabies and microchipped. If you would like to hold me on your lap for the rest of my days, then please email or call 503.857.5047 and ask for an application to adopt me. Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chelsea, a Sheridan 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 Sheridan, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Sheridan.

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