Posted Breed: Shih Tzu. THIS SHIH TZU IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. If you are looking at this site, you probably are an animal lover. Every day we get requests to help people place dogs and cats who were found as strays, or the owners don't want them any more, or they are going to be euthanized at the shelter. We want to help all of these animals, but without more foster homes we are not able to help. If you love animals, but are not ready to take on the full responsibility of ownership, or if you can fit one more animal into your household, maybe you could foster for Animal Protection Society of Person County. We pay all vet expenses, food bills, and can provide houses and/or crates for your foster. Please consider fostering. Fostering saves lives. In order to adopt this animal or another rescue buddy,please visit our website and complete the online adoption application.

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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Roxboro, NC
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie / Mixed (long coat). COURTESY POST FOR NORTHERN VA. SHELTIE RESCUE "Bridget is fostered in South Boston VA." IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BRIDGET, PLEASE GO TO www.nvsr.org Bridget Although Bridget is not a Sheltie, (we think she is a Shepherd mix), her NVSR friends are helping to find her forever home. She is a dog who loves people and making new friends - human or canine. Bridget has a big bark when she sees strangers, but she is only asking them to come pet her! Her foster family says she is very smart, is anxious to please, and enjoys practicing “sit”, “wait”, “crate”, and “heel.” She can fetch, too! Bridget loves to learn new things and play games with people. She enjoys playing with another dog her size, but because she can be a little rough when she gets excited, small dogs and cats aren’t the right playmates for her. Young children might be afraid of her because she is strong and might knock them down accidentally. Running around a big fenced yard is one of Bridget's favorite things as long as people are with her. Her foster mom says she is a “velcro dog.” But she doesn’t have to be playing every minute. She is quiet and will rest at her humans’ feet when it's time to settle down. She sleeps in a big crate and is quiet as a mouse all night long. This friendly girl loves to go for rides in the car as well as walks wearing her harness. She never chews anything she is not supposed to, but she loves her Kong Bone, especially with peanut butter stuffed inside. Bridget has a good appetite but she tends to eat too fast, so she has a special slow-eat bowl so she won’t gobble her food. As long as Bridget doesn’t have to go too long without a potty break, you can count on her reliable housetraining. She's been brought up to date on all her vaccines and is ready for her new home. As much as her foster family loves her and she loves them, Bridget wants a person of her own who will be around a lot. Could that be you? Bridget is ... 5 years old, 40 pounds, and 19 inches tall. Her adoption fee is $250. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BRIDGET, PLEASE GO TO www.nvsr.org
