Barkley's Story...
November is a month for being thankful......... Barkley is thankful that SASS Rescue gave him a temporary home while he waits for his future family to come adopt him.............November is also a month for giving.......Can you give Barkley a home with a family that will love him??????????

Barkley is a 1 yr old Shih Tzu who loves to give millions of kisses. He is playful, sweet, adorable, silly, friendly did we already say ADORABLE?????

Barkley came to us very shy because his former owner kept him in a bedroom and he wasn't socialized with people. When she moved out of state she left Barkley behind with her roommate to find a home for him. After a few days with the SASS family he warmed up very quickly and is loving life. His former owner left behind a perfect little dog. Her loss is another families gain.....

Barkley is neutered, up to date on all his shots, heartworm tested, on flea and heartworm preventative and microchipped.

His adoption donation is $225.00

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barkley, a Urbana 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 Urbana, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Urbana.

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