Hey there, folks! Oreo here, ready to give you the lowdown on why I'm the ultimate canine companion you've been searching for. First things first, I'm a fun-loving, affectionate dude – and yes, I'm unneutered, but don't let that stop you from seeing all the pawsome qualities I have to offer. Let's talk fun! I live for those moments when I can dash around the yard, feeling the wind in my fur. And let me tell you, I've got some serious potential when it comes to agility – I'm nimble, quick, and always up for a challenge. Bring on the obstacles, I'll show 'em who's boss! Now, onto the cozy stuff. Picture this: me, curled up on the couch, surrounded by soft blankets, and snuggled up next to you. Sounds dreamy, right? Well, that's just a typical evening for us if you decide to bring me into your home. Here's where I really shine – security detail. Forget about fancy alarm systems, because with me around, you've got the best security in town. I've got a keen eye and sharp ears, and I'll make sure to alert you if anyone even dares to step foot near our turf. No shared walls needed for this top-notch security system! And hey, let's not forget about my furry friends. I'm a social butterfly when it comes to other dogs – friendly, playful, and always up for a good time. So, if you've got canine companions at home, I'll fit right in like a missing puzzle piece. So, what do you say? Ready to invite a fun-loving, cuddle-ready, and ultra-secure pup like me into your life? I promise, once you meet me, you'll wonder how you ever lived without me. ##1946766##

Story
In addition to the following profile for this dog, please first read the Adoption Information at http://www.shihtzurescuemn.org/adopt.html to understand the process, requirements and timeline for adoption. An adoption application can also be found in the Adoption Info section. If, after reading that information, you have any questions, please submit your question via e-mail and it will be answered. Please do not request a phone call. A personal phone call will only be made when an adoption application has been submitted and the foster parent wishes to consider the application. Thank you! Coco is an 11 year old, male, Shih Tzu mix who acts like he is 5 years old. He weighs 15 pounds. He is energetic and playful and has a real zest for life. He was surrendered to the rescue after his owner had health issues and could no longer care for him. It appears Coco was loved and well cared for until the last year, when his owner’s health seriously declined and Coco was very neglected. Coco came into the rescue, not having not been groomed for over a year and needed veterinary care. After Coco received the care and consistency he needed, his foster parents have found that he loves to snuggle, enjoys his walks, food and toys. He is making up for the last year, experiencing the good life in his foster home after being neglected for so long. He really enjoys the company of his people, but also is okay with some alone time hanging out in his kennel. He feels secure in his kennel and goes there as his “safe” spot if the door is left open and he can go in and out as he pleases. He also prefers to sleep at night in his kennel. Coco enjoys car rides and is a great, calm traveling companion. The best home for Coco will be: - Coco is a very active dog and needs an owner who will enthusiastically engage and play with him, and can be home most of the day. Even though Coco is 11 years old, he has lots of energy and likes his walks and going outside on a daily, regular basis. This is a must for him to keep him happy and healthy. - He is accepting of another small dog in the family, but would be fine as an only dog. Coco is rather protective of his toys and food and this should be taken into consideration if another dog is in the home. - Coco’s new family will need to be patient in understanding Coco’s previous neglect situation, comfort him and help him acclimate to his new surroundings. He will need to re-learn, with his owners’ reassurance, that he can trust his owners to provide food and toys without him having to guard or protect them. - Coco would probably okay with kids that are respectful and who have had experience with small dogs. A family with children over the age of ten will be considered. - Live within 45 miles of Lakeville, MN and agree to attend the annual rescue reunion held each year in September. Coco is neutered, has had a dental, and is current on vaccinations and is on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption fee is $170.00 plus sales tax of $14.49 for a total of $184.49. To meet Coco, please complete an adoption application at the website listed in the first paragraph. Or you can also see him and the other dogs available for adoption from Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota by visiting with us from 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon the first Saturday of every month at Petco Southtown Center in Bloomington, MN.

Unfortunately you won’t get to see my beautiful big eyes because I lost them to severe glaucoma.   Although I cannot see you when you cuddle and hold me, I know you love me, it's in the words I hear when you tell me with pride.   I am quite selective with food and treats, like all princesses would, but I do appreciate your patience and love just like a good dog should.   I love walks but I am very slow with no eyes to guide me. I cannot see to run or play out in the sun so bright, for here inside my tiny head it's always dark as night.   I know it will be alright because you will love me just as much as any dog with sight.

Story
Casey is an adorable Shih Tzu who thinks everyone is a new friend to meet! Casey is becoming more confident and wags his tail.  Casey does good with other dogs and enjoys hanging out with them in my fenced backyard on nice days. He is doing well with his house training and crate training, I have started to let Casey have run of my bedroom and my kitchen when I am at work and he is doing well so far, at night he sleeps where he wants and he sleeps in my bedroom. He is very treat motivated, soft treats are his favorite. Casey will most likely need eye drops for the rest of his life for his dry eye but he handles it like a Champ. Casey does the Cutest wiggles when he is Happy and I have started to see his silly side come out. Who is ready to continue to give this amazing sweet boy his wonderful loving forever home? Age: 15 Breed: Shih Tzu Weight: 15 pounds Kid-Friendly: Yes Dogs: Yes Cats: Yes Crate Trained: Yes but also can be left outside his crate! Potty Trained: Yes Health Concerns:  Eye cloudiness and old eye injury. Vet recommends eye ointment life long Reason for surrender: Owner passed away Adoption Fee: $225 As a rescue, we provide the care, procedures and testing that is available to us.      Adopters will be responsible for continued preventatives, follow-up appointments, and medications (if applicable). At times, adopters will be responsible for procedures not completed in rescue (dentals, bloodwork, etc.) Your new dog will receive their rabies and distemper vaccine. $50 discount for seniors (65+) and veterans. Adoption fees help pay for the dog's veterinary exam, vaccinations (rabies and distemper) HW test, a microchip, and spay/neuter if needed and additional health needs specific to each animal.  Grey Face Rescue does not adopt outside of Minnesota for now. We apologize for the inconvenience. We do not adopt animals to families whose current pets are not up-to-date on vaccinations or not altered. Exceptions may be made for medical reasons as stated by a veterinarian and we will require proof of that recommendation. Thank you for understanding our mission to reduce overpopulation.
