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.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Huckleberry is an adorable young dog who was placed on the euthanasia list at a high kill shelter. He was found as a stray, and patiently waited for his family to come save him, but no one ever came. When we heard his story, he had only hours to live.

He gets along well with the other dogs, is house trained, quiet, loving and devoted. He has the most beautiful and soulful chocolate brown eyes. Huckleberry is very smart, easy going and loving. He's a very easy dog to adopt! We will have him neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated including rabies. We had him examined by our vet, and he is perfectly healthy. He weighs about 17 lbs and is about 3 yrs old.

      Posted Breed: Basenji / Shiba Inu / Mixed (short coat). Buster is a playful, intelligent dog looking for a new home. Buster's family grew tired of him and tied him to a pipe in the carport 24/7. He had no room to move around and sat on a little doormat for months. Neighbors finally reported them and asked us to save Buster. Our volunteer was heartbroken when she saw this beautiful dog living with such cruelty and isolation. When she brought Buster home, he was the happiest little dog! He ran around the yard curiously exploring everything. He loves to play with his foster brothers and is very well behaved. Buster is intelligent, friendly, house trained and healthy. He loves to be around people and would do well with another active, playful dog or active family. Buster loves to cuddle and is very loving. He is under 2 years old, neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Buster weighs about 14 lbs. He doesn't have any bad habits like digging, chewing or barking excessively. Buster has put his former life behind him and is an amazing young dog!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Boston Terrier (short coat). Maisel is a sweet, well socialized little girl left to die in a high kill shelter. She was a shelter volunteer favorite, and they kept her off the euthanasia list for as long as they could. Maisel is a little shy when meeting new people, and was quite frightened in the loud, scary shelter. This isn't the best way to attract an adopter. Finally, the volunteers couldn't postpone the inevitable, and this happy loving girl was given 48 hrs to live. When one of our volunteers heard her story, we jumped into action and saved her just in the nick of time! Maisel is practically perfect in every way! She is extremely friendly, loving and devoted. She loves to cuddle, isn't barky or yippy, and loves to play with her foster siblings. Maisel walks very politely on a leash, is house trained and sits quietly on car rides. Maisel put on a few pounds while sitting in a cage at the shelter, but her new family keeps her active and she's already lost a pound! We had Maisel thoroughly examined by our vet, including full bloodwork and a dental. Maisel did great! She is a healthy 9 yr old girl with a lot of love to give and a lot of years left. She is extremely smart, well behaved and quiet unless someone is at the door. Maisel would be perfect for a senior, anyone in an apartment or a family with older children. She's spayed, fully vaccinated including rabies, and microchipped. If you'd like to meet the marvelous Miss Maisel, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $200
