Coco's Story...
This proud and precious little man is Coco, a shih Tzu that is a little over 3 years old and would love a great home of his own. Coco came to us from our Newark facility, where he was given up by his owner because they "could not handle him". This perfect little guy would first like to say....don't judge him by his tough little under bite. Coco is an absolute doll that is made up of sugar and sweetness! Coco is very well behaved, and very gentle and easy going. When you go in Coco's run to take him out, he looks at you with those big, hopeful eyes and silly under bite as if to say, "are you just here to look at me or can we go for a walk?". He walks like the perfect little gentleman on a leash and will sit instantly when asked. Coco is very friendly, and all you need to do it kneel down and you'll have him climbing up in your lap in no time. Coco doesn't seem to mind other dogs and he's never met a person he doesn't like. He's just an all around great little guy, that is so deserving of a great home. Please give Coco that fresh start in life that he's hoping for! File#22731 8/9/13

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Coco, a Forked River 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 Forked River, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Forked River.

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