Shih Tzu Maltese

Female, 8 yrs 1 mo
Windsor, VA
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Spayed or Neutered,
Meet Pearl! This tiny tot was found as a stray, and her owners never reclaimed for her. She has since settled in with a foster family who calls her “so sweet and practically perfect”. They report she has had 0 accidents in the house, and sleeps through the night like an angel. She gets along with her resident dog-foster siblings, and enjoys going for walks or strolling the yard with them. Pearl does seem to have some seasonal itchiness/allergies that her new family may need to maintain. We will have our veterinarian thoroughly assess her, and give her an allergy injection before adoption. Pearl will be spayed, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, heartowrm tested, and have full bloodwork. She will come with 12 months of heart worm prevention and 30 days of Trupanion pet insurance.

Hi! Thanks for noticing me! I will be at the Norfolk Animal Care & Adoption Center (NACC) on a stray hold until 6/12 while I wait for my owner(s) to come find me. As I am still settling into my new environment, NACC is currently not accepting adoption applications on me. Requests for further information on how to adopt me will not be returned at this time, so please make sure to check out everyone else at NACC for adoption!We are NOT accepting applications at this time.*Disclaimer* This animal may have maximum number of applications or already be adopted.

Shih Tzu

Male, 10 yrs 3 mos
Hayes, VA
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Spayed or Neutered,
Please welcome Sparky to the 4 PAWS family! He came to us in April through Unchain America after his owner passed away. Sparky is a 10 + year old Shih Tzu, that was hit by a car a few years ago (he takes medication daily for pain). Sparky is extremely sweet, mostly calm except when he can’t see his person (he gets anxious & will bark/whine), loves to play with squeaky toys, and carries his toy where ever he goes, he even takes it outside with him. He does well with both cats and dogs; he has not been tested with children. It would be best if Sparky's new family was home a lot or able to take him along, he does have non-destructive separation anxiety. Sparky is a wonderful dog with a great personality and a lot of life left to live, if you are looking for an older dog he might be your guy! If you are interested in adoption; DO NOT CALL, please complete an online application on 4 Paws Animal Rescue's website at We verify the care of past/current pets. Our goal is to have the very best home for all our dogs and cats, and therefore, we reserve the right to approve or deny an application based on what we determine is in the pet's best interest. #dogsareworthit #adoptdontshop #shihtzu #rescueisthebestbreed #lovedogs #dogs #dogsareacommittment
