Charlie's Story...
Charlie is a sweet lovely small (8 lbs) Shih Tzu we think is 2 to 3 years old. He is quiet, affectionate and loves to play with other dogs. Friendly, he has a wagging tail for everyone. His life has not always been easy; he has a right back leg that has limited function because of an accident. But on 3 legs nothing slows him down he runs and plays and can jump right up in your lap for cuddles. Charlie needs a quiet house because he is a bit shy of loud noises. He is kennel trained, walks well on a leash, but his housetraining is a work in progress. We are hoping his recent neutering takes care of any problems there, but he will need consistent guidance till he catches on to the rules of the house. Charlie deserves a caring loving home.

If you are that home please contact his foster mom Stephanie directly816-763-5205 or e-mail thehopes-steph@kc.rr.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, a Overland Park 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 Overland Park, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Overland Park.

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