Allie & Ethel's Story...
Introducing Allie & Ethel. Allie is the daughter of Ethel. They are 2 sweet gals that are very devoted to each other and MUST be adopted together. Allie is 8 years old and Ethel is 9. They were rescued from another shelter that was closing and came to Friendship in hopes of getting a loving home.
Ethel and Allie are crate trained and have impeccable house manners. Both are very social lap dogs and great on a leash. A fenced in yard would be nice for them to be able to lounge around but not a must. It's probably best if they live in a quiet adult household or one with teenage children that respect dogs. It's not known if they like cats or dogs but they may be the only pets you need. They certainly have a lot of love to give.

Ethel's left front left leg has been amputated and her eyesight is starting to fail. Even though, she and Allie like to go for walks. Having only 3 legs does not deter Ethel. At some point early in her life her leg was shattered. She had been hobbling around on it until arriving at Friendship. The vet thought it best to amputate it to keep her from being in pain later on in life. She can go up the stairs, but is carried down the stairs. She's doing great and having no problem at all walking on 3 legs. Probably a quiet home would be best for both of them.

Allie is more active than her mom. Both will keep you laughing with their sweet antics.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Allie & Ethel, a Elyria 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 Elyria, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Elyria.

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