Shih Tzu

Available for Adoption


(Adopted July 12/17)
Male/neutered/shots current
7 years old

Boo Boo is a very sweet old fashioned style Shih Tzu. His foster mom describes him as HUGE. Heís not fat heís just large and stocky.

He is a teensy bit shy when he first meets you or maybe heís just docile. Heís perfect. He does whatever is asked of him without question, he minds requests, he is a good eater, he is fantastic and quiet on car rides, loves walks and playing outside. When he first arrived at his foster home he could not get enough of the yard and given the choice of coming inside or taking a nap in an open crate in a ďtea houseĒ, he chose the latter since it was still outside.

Boo Boo has had a full medical work up and a dental with x rays. Heís in perfect health and his blood work is excellent. His radiographs showed nothing interesting.

He is a really great dog and gets along with everyone but he was tormented by young children so would like to not live with any. Heís frightened of them and wonít fight back so we need to advocate for his right to be comfortable with his new family.

Boo Boo is living in Kirkland Washington

Hello Shih Tzu lovers!

I am sending out word that I am looking for a new home. My human passed away and his children didnít want me but they at least let me stay in a home and not have to go to a kennel. Now Iím in a rescue home.

Itís been a bit of a whirlwind for me - New people, new places, new dogs, vet visits, trip to the groomer, all in less than one week, too. But Iím ready to go up for adoption.

I have had a full medical check-up and had my teeth cleaned and x rayed. Most dogs in rescue donít get to know the tiniest detail about their health but I found out that I make too much cortisol and the veterinarian ran a number of tests to pin point exactly what was going on and now I take a pill every day. Anyone interested in me can ask for details.

My foster mama is very silly and she describes me as a wind up plush sheep toy and adores me to pieces. It turns out that Iím the old-fashioned kind of Shih Tzu and am strong and sturdy. We are known for easy temperaments and for being easy going.

I have one requirement Ė that you love to snuggle and have a plush toy sort of dog hanging around with you. I donít have to have another dog but I would like one. Iíve been around large dogs and cats and donít bother them. I donít really like it but you can crate me if you need to. Iím super in the car, quiet Ė gosh it took us over an hour each way to the groomer and it didnít bother me at all. Iím cautious about jumping up and down from things. Also, young children tormented me and I would really be happier not having any around. I donít like to be tormented and I donít fight back.

Iím a happy happy dog who just needs a home.

If you donít have another dog but would love to have two dogs that get along like brothers, you might consider adopting Boo Boo along with me. Heís just 7. Iím the brave one, though and he looks up to me.

I am living in Kirkland Washington and having a great time and Iíll be here waiting for you!

Hi!  My name is Scooter!  My foster Mom, Jennifer, calls me Scootie-Patootie!  She says that I am ďadorbsĒ!  Yep, I am adorbs!  I am such a sweet boy!  I am nice to all other dogs and people and I am very mellow, gentle and sweet.  I donít have a mean bone in my body and I am just about as easy going as they get!  I am great with people and I love to be right next to my person most of the time.  I like to sit next to you on the couch and I like to sleep right next to you in the bed.  Iím a mushy monster!  I am happy all the time and always have a smile on my face!  I wake up happy and I go to bed is gooooood!


Will you be my new Mommy or Daddy?  I will make you the best little buddy ever!


I am currently being fostered by Jennifer for our good friends at Purple Heart Rescue.  If you are interested in meeting me, please contact
















Doggie thoughts:

 ďWhy wonít they adopt me? Is it because Iím a senior?

I wouldnít overlook them just because theyíre a senior.

Are they afraid of me dying too soon? Well, I might be afraid theyíd die too soon if I was a young puppy and then what would happen to me?

Which is worse Ė to say good-bye to an aged beloved pet or to die yourself and leave your pet behind with an unknown future?Ē

People thoughts:

For me, a human, Iíd rather know that my pet is waiting for me on the other side versus me dying first and leaving my beloved petís future to chance. Sometimes those we ask to take over our petís care after weíre gone, donít always do so.  After all, weíd be gone, weíd never know

"The Animals Savior"

I looked at the caged animals in the
shelter...the cast offs of human society.

I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread,
sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry
"God," I said "this is terrible! Why don't you
do something?"
God was silent for a moment and than
He spoke softly
"I have done something." He replied
"I created You"
