Shih Tzu

Small  |  Male

Palo Alto, CA


Our rescue will be at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express Saturday, October 22nd from 1-4pm and Sunday, October 23rd from 12-3pm. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.
* If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, for an application. * We do not have a facility. All dogs live in foster homes. Arrangements to meet dogs occur after an approved application has been accepted. * We do not ship our dogs for any reason. * Our adoption fee is $400 for each dog/puppy. * If it is on a weekend of our adoptions, follow us on @DPSRescue on Twitter to get real time updates on our adoptions. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted:

This dog will be at Palo Alto Pet Food Express on Saturday, October 22nd from 1-4pm and Sunday, October 23rd from 12-3pm or until adopted. However, we do meet with those who submit an application and are approved just prior to the event (by invitation only) and they are given the first opportunity to adopt. If you are interested in one of our dogs, we recommend filling out an application prior to the event to be considered. Applications submitted within 24 hours of the event may not necessarily be reviewed.

Chewy is a 5 year old Shih Tzu possibly Poodle mix. He has a non-shedding coat that is an option for those who have allergies and/or simply want a dog who doesn't shed. He will require regular grooming. We will be looking for an application that demonstrates they are committed to grooming and knows the grooming needs of a Shih Tzu. Chewy is a super friendly, get along with everyone kind of dog. He's a total lap dog. He's a lover, cuddler and a snuggler.
Chewy gets along well with other dogs. He currently lives with several smalls dogs and previously lived with a big GSD. He gets along with everyone he has met so far in his foster home. Chewy is not a barker. He's not a chewer. He is 100% crate trained. He initially came into the rescue and was most comfortable outside. That lasted about 3-4 days and now he'd like to be inside as much as possible--Thank you! He is not a barker unless he needs to go outside.
Chewy is an option to go to work with Mom or Dad. He is an option to live in an apartment or condo setting. He is an option to live with children over the age of 8. He is potentially an option to live with a home that has not had a dog before but the application will need to be complete and demonstrate that the applicant has researched having a dog and prepared for having one.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)
**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
