Petey's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Petey's Story...
If we were to match Petey with his forever person, we would choose someone who wanted a lap dog or a guy who would be at their side as a devoted companion. As a 6 year old (we're never really sure but this is the age estimate of the Arkansas vets) stunning purebred Shih Tzu, Petey has been waiting his entire life for a person to love. Due to his striking good looks (that's just a chew toy in the photo), Petey was used to father many pups...born into the sadness of an Arkansas breeding mill. But finally, Petey was recognized for the love inside of him and has been rescued! He left the dismal mill behind and...to his joy..is living with a great foster family who love and respect him. At 6 years young...Petey is healthy and incredibly happy. Shih Tzus live very long lives..often up to 17 or 18 years...and we want to make certain that Petey finally gets the care and commitment by a devoted guardian who truly loves him. Petey is such a joy to be with! He watches the world with a wisdom that speaks of good behavior and undying loyalty. Once Petey is bonded..there is no end to his efforts to be the best companion ever. While he doesn't require lots of exercise, he does enjoy leisurely walks in the sunshine with his favorite people. He wants to share his new-found joy of freedom with everyone he meets...he's very pleasant and appropriate as long as he knows what's expected of him. We would like to find a calm and very devoted home for Petey. We envision a retired couple (or individual) who is searching for a full-time companion. He's very portable at only about 10 lbs and would love nothing more than to be included in social visits, window shopping in dog-friendly areas or just hanging out at home with his family and a good toy. He will offer any dog-loving person...with an open lap...the joy of companionship and constant loyalty. Petey is a non-shedding guy who will require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his cotton-soft coat healthy and matt-free.
Petey has arrived on transport and is being fostered in Boulder, CO. Applications are currently being accepted and Meet & Greets are currently being set up for this exceptional companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petey, a Boulder 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 Boulder, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Boulder.

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