Shih Tzu

Male, Senior
Lee's Summit, MO
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Good with dogs, Good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
DOB: 9/20/2013                  Approx Weight: 8.56 Lbs Adoption Fee: $175  includes a 2 week trial to ensure everyone's happiness! Cloven was a breeder release.  He is not typical of ones we normally receive as he is friendly to humans and enjoys other dogs, he is very very sweet. He loves to sleep in bed with his foster Mom and siblings.  For being a senior dog he is pretty active! He is still working on housebreaking skills and leash walking so at this point he will need a fenced yard. Cloven does have a cleft lip but does eat and drink normally. I have been neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, wormed and microchipped.  If you are interested in adopting me, please complete the adoption application located at and a dedicated volunteer will get back to you as soon as possible. Furry Kids' Refuge is in need of good quality dog and puppy food with meat as the first ingredient.  You can drop off donations at our weekly adoption events at the Lee's Summit Petco (1860 NW Chipman Road, Lee's Summit, MO), Saturdays only from 11am to 2:00 p.m.  Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.  Would you like to foster a Furry Kid? Furry Kids' Refuge will supply the food & vet care while you supply the basic house rules & for all!!  Just visit our website  for more information. Thanks for your support!

Theo is a friendly little guy but we no longer have a fenced in yard. Theo would do best with an affectionate owner with a big yard. He loved kids as well.

Ralphie is an absolute dreamboat! He recently went to a foster home and he's been so great! No accidents/marking, loves following his foster mom everywhere, kennels without a peep, loves all people, and cuddles all night in bed He has 'resting sad face' most of the time but is actually a very happy guy and reminds his foster mom of Falkor, the dragon from the Neverending Story. He will make someone very happy!!
