My story

Who wouldn't love a Cinnamon swirl to love and cuddle, without the calories to your hips? Look no further than this young at heart 10-year-old Shih Tzu girl. Technically a senior, Cinnamon still gets her zoomies in, loves to play with her foster siblings, large and small, and is up for a cuddle when playtime is over.

While we don’t know much about her background, we believe that the lack of dental care in her prior life led to the loss of most of her lower jaw. Like the clever girl she is, Cinnamon has learned a way around her problem and doesn’t require special care, but she does need canned/wet food.

Cinnamon is crate and house trained and is ready to find her very own forever home.

Cinnamon has been spayed, is current on vaccinations, has tested negative for heartworm and is microchipped.

Why adoption is a great option

Cinnamon, a Salt Lake City 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 Salt Lake City, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Salt Lake City.

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