MUNCHKIN-pending's Story...
6 mo old Munchkin is only 8 pounds big. He is very cute and sweet too! The attached video shows Munchkin meeting a 12 year old for the first time. Upon arrival Munchkin drank a few sips of water and went right to sleep. Not a peep all night. He slept in peace after his trip to our home. Munchkin has no fear of my big dogs although my dogs are not sure what this little thing is. He's a sweet little cuddle bug! Munchkin did well during his bath, and was patient with the comb out. He seems to be an easy going puppy.

UPDATE: The little guy is settling in nicely in our home. He has a sweet disposition and will stay close or be your lap dog if he can. He's fairly quiet and easy to live with. He did fuss in the crate but loves being with the family. He is fine being around other dogs but moves away if they are too quick. When meeting new people, he was just fine. He seems to go with the flow as a typical pup would. He is being taken out on a regular schedule and seems to be learning where the door is. With this boy, be prepared to have your heart stolen!

This animal is currently fostered in a private home. Our rescue is 100% foster home based. We do not have a shelter or kennel. They are cared for by a loving family until adopted. Each pup has had their first vet exam, a shot, and de-worming, etc We make sure they have no fleas prior to going into our foster homes. They are fostered out of the shelter at least two weeks or more prior to adopting to monitor health. We take their care seriously! Please note that the adoption appointments will be scheduled after your application is approved. Once adopted, feel free to change the dog's name. You do not have to keep the name listed in this post.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MUNCHKIN-pending, a West Milford Shih Tzu puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in West Milford, or seeking a Shih Tzu puppy from a breeder in West Milford.

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