Arnie's Story...
Arnie is a sweet tempered, three year old, sixteen pound male Shih Tzu mix who likes to be in someone's lap most of the time. He loves to be outside, and is learning that is the best place to go potty. Arnie has settled in well with his foster parents and two Shih Tzu siblings. He is a very active little guy who can jump up on most furniture, and he moves fast. Arnie can dance on his back feet, especially if he smells food or a treat. Arnie eats well, and he is very enthusiatic about food. That i€™s actually a good thing, because it i€™s easier to train a dog if he is motivated by a treat! He's learning to sit and trying to wait for his turn at treat time. Arnie wants to please and tries to do as he is asked.
Arnie walks well on a leash when accompanying his Shih Tzu siblings, but is still a bit leery when walking with his foster parents by himself. Arnie is still learning to socialize, and although initially a bit timid in new situations, he is outgoing and curious of other animals and people. Arnie is appropriately respectful when meeting other dogs and older children, and would likely be happy in a home with either or both.
Arnie’s adoption fee is $320.00 plus sales tax. His foster parents would like his adoptive family to live within a reasonable driving distance of the Twin Cities and also encourage them to attend the Shih Tzu Rescue Reunion held in June every year.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Arnie, a Eden Prairie 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 Eden Prairie, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Eden Prairie.

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