More About Shih Tzu Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

    • Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Millville, UT, USA

      Tuff

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet our handsome little Tuff! Tuff is a petite Labrador mix, coming in at about 40-45 pounds. Compact and fun! We think he is a Labrador mixed with a breed that is known for brindle coloring (Boxer, Plott Hound, Treeing Tennessee Brindle as a long shot?). At first glance he may seem all black with a spot of white on his chest, but he has a gorgeous, subtle brindle coloring on all four legs. Tuff would make a great outdoor buddy for the active outdoor family or household with teenagers. He is a super smart guy so eager to please, he just wants to learn. He sleeps in a crate every night without accidents so we think he is house-trained as well. He would love to learn some basic commands and earn the love of a special human or family out there. He would need a cat-free household and most likely a home without another dog. He gets along with most dogs but can be a little confrontational if the introduction wasn’t ideal. With that said, he would love all the human attention for himself. Smaller children may make him too anxious. Tuff is an adult at 4-5 years old. The adoption fee for Tuff is $150 which includes spay or neuter surgery and vaccinations (rabies and parvo/distemper). We show dogs by appointment or at adoption events. If you would like to meet Tuff, please call and leave a message with Lisa (Director of Four Paws Rescue) at (435) 764-3534 or email us at scfourpaws@hotmail.com. Please be patient with us getting back to you as we are all volunteers with full-time jobs! Thank you for your interest in handsome Tuff!

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd (medium coat). Cougar was owner surrendered to Idaho Falls Animal Shelter because her owner went into assisted living and the people who tried to keep her were unable to because they had young children. Cougar will make a great dog for an older couple with no young children. She does best with adults and older teenagers. She is very sweet. She is house-trained and quiet. She is mellow indoors, but also really likes to go for walks. Cougar is OK with other dogs, but she would probably prefer to be an only dog where she doesn't have to share the love and attention. We think she would be fine with cats, but haven't tested her to be positive, yet. Cougar is about 8 years old and is a spayed female Shepherd. Please don't pass Cougar up because of her age. She needs and wants a new family just as much as the younger dogs. Besides, she's out of the puppy stages and just ready to be a mellow well-behaved companion her last couple years. Please give this sweetheart another chance! Cougar's adoption fee is $125 which includes her spay or neuter surgery and vaccinations (rabies and parvo/distemper). We show dogs by appointment or at adoption events. If you would like to meet Cougar, please call and leave a message with Lisa (Director of Four Paws Rescue) at (435) 752-3534 or email us at scfourpaws@hotmail.com. Please be patient with us getting back to you as we are all volunteers with full-time jobs! Thank you for your interest in sweet Cougar!

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Scooby is a great dog! He is super mellow, gentle, and loving. He is good with other dogs (although he can be a little bit alpha), kids, and cats who don't run from him. He is house-trained. Scooby is also good on a leash. He loves blankets. He has been a mostly indoor dog and is very well-behaved indoors, he'll find a spot to lay down and stay there for most of the day, especially if there is a soft blanket for him to sleep on. Scooby is about 8 years old and we think he could be a Great Dane or Mastiff mix. Scooby's adoption fee is $125 which includes neuter surgery and vaccinations (rabies and parvo/distemper).

      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Australian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Lady came to Four Paws when her owner passed away and his widow couldn't take care of Lady any more. She is such a sweet girl! She has been an outside dog her whole life, working on a farm and herding cattle on the range in the summers. She is a senior, at least 10 years old, possibly older, but is still full of energy and doesn't seem that old. Doesn't she deserve a warm bed inside for however long she has left? She is in a foster home with other dogs and is a bit bewildered and sort of possessive of her new foster mom, but really loves being in the house. She learned what a couch was for very quickly! She seeks attention and love, and wants to please all the time. Since she is new to Four Paws we are not sure whether she is house trained, but she hasn't had an accident inside yet and will learn house manners very quickly. Could you be the one to love her forever? The adoption fee for Lady is $150 which includes the spay or neuter surgery and vaccinations (rabies and parvo/distemper). We show dogs by appointment or at adoption events. If you would like to meet Lady, please call and leave a message with Lisa (Director of Four Paws Rescue) at (435) 764-3534 or email us at scfourpaws@hotmail.com.

Honcho is great with kids and other dogs but not cats. He is however, a super-duper fence jumper, so he will need to go to a home that is willing to put him on a tie-out that is out of hazards way. He does also have some separation anxiety. Honcho's adoption fee is $125 which includes the spay or neuter surgery and vaccinations (rabies and parvo/distemper).
