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: Shinese
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Weston, FL
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu / Pekingese / Mixed. Crystal Joy is a sweet little girl. She came to us very scared and is still very cautious when meeting new people. She lit up when we were taking her pictures as you can see. She is about 10 years old and weighs about 12-14 lbs. She would do best in a home with people who are patient and will give her the time she needs to feel confident in her new life. She is starting to realize her luck has changed which is why I think she is all smiles. IMPORTANT; WE ADOPT ONLY IN SOUTH FLORIDA BUT MAKE SOME EXCEPTIONS IN APPROXIMATE AREAS OF Naples, Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Tampa, St. Pete, Lady Lake, The Villages, Orlando, Ormond Beach, Melbourne, etc.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Shih Tzu / Mixed. Shortly after little pregnant Winifred Mae was surrendered to us she gave birth to a litter of adorable puppies at the beginning of September! She is a wonderful mommy and has helped us raise them and get them ready to go out into the big world and learn everything a little dog needs to know. Each one looks different and has a different personality but they are all sweet, curious little babies. All puppies are up to date on vaccines and will be spayed neutered when appropriate and part of adoption agreement.

Myers, Sarasota, Tampa, St. Pete, Lady Lake, The Villages, Orlando, Ormond Beach, Melbourne, etc. Rosie & Posy would be great with children, an active, athletic adult or both. Approximately 9 months old, they are loaded with energy and enthusiasm and need lots of attention and training. They adore each other, love other dogs and people, love to run and play. Need lots of daily exercise. Posy is larger than Rosie - you can see that they're sisters but they don't really look alike. They are desperate for attention and affection and should do beautifully with someone who has lots of time, energy and love to share with them, someone who knows dogs and has some training experience. These sweet little girls are desperate for a home of their own.

I am fearful and will bite if you are not my person. I am smart and learn commands quickly and will sit quietly with a firm command. With patience and skill I can learn to accept you.
