Otis (foster care)'s Story...
Hi I’m Otis Spunkmeyer (Otie). When I came to the shelter my name was Dallas, but my old life was pretty (RUFF) so I needed a fresh start and a new name. My owner died a few months ago and I was brought to the shelter in pretty bad shape. I had mattes all over my body that really hurt and I was very skinny. My foster family helped me get back on my feet with the help of a nice lady who got rid of all those painful mattes. I even got to go on vacation with them for some rest and relaxation...and great food! I love to go for walks and play with toys. My favorite thing is cuddling and sitting on laps. I have trouble seeing out of one eye so I get a little scared when other dogs get too close to my face. I do love other dogs though! I like cats, birds and bunnies too! There are lots of great animals in my foster home! The shelter thinks I’m between 10 and 15
years old, but I act more like a 5 year old. Do you have a little space in your life and on your lap for a sweet pup like me? Contact my foster at: for more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otis (foster care), a Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

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