Cornelius is a male Shih Tzu approximately 2 years of age. He has a stout, sturdy body weighing a solid 16 pounds. Cornelius has soft, wavy orange and white fur that is low/non-shedding. He is currently sporting a shorter summer haircut due to severe matting upon his arrival to the shelter. Cornelius is a happy, easygoing young dog. He is very low maintenance, mellow and quiet. Cornelius likes things peaceful and enjoys a more serene environment. He walks beautifully on leash, trotting out in front with his curly tail waving in the air. Cornelius is affectionate and adores people and attention. He does not play with other dogs, instead he definitely prefers the company of people. He is great when guests come over, greeting them appropriately without jumping up or barking. Cornelius is a great house dog. He adores treats and will do anything for a tidbit. He also enjoys sunning himself in the backyard while you putter around the garden or maybe have a picnic. Cornelius is content to simply keep you company without any fuss. He is a classy gentleman and an easy keeper. Cornelius is healthy and ready for his new forever home today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

CORNELIUS, a Newport Beach 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 Newport Beach, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Newport Beach.

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