Shih Tzu

Available for Adoption



Male/neutered/shots current
9 years old
13 lbs

Benny is a sweet and loving middling aged Shih Tzu who lost his owner.

 We have had him for nearly a month but are just now putting him up for adoption.  Due to a lack of medical history he needed some baseline diagnostics and when there were question marks we proceeded with the next step to rule out or confirm inconsistencies.  When all was said and done, which it is and has been, he’s in tip top shape.

We need to get him to the groomer and he’s going to be cute as a button when that happens but here is a photo of him “before” and he’s still adorable.  When you see him in person, his waggedy tail, his curious eyes and ability and interest in interacting with you, you will fall in love.

Currently, he is in his foster home with many dogs and is getting along very well.  He settled right in his first night as if he had always lived there.

He’s a terrific little fellow just looking for someone to love again.


Benny is fostered in Kirkland WA. email Furbaby Rescue for application.



(Adoption pending)
Boston and Fenway
Males/neutered/shots current
Boston: 13 years young
Fenway: 4 years old
Both 14 lbs




The names of Boston and Fenway obviously have a special story which the foster mom can share with you along with much more information than you’ll read here. You do not need to be an avid baseball fan to be considered as the ideal home for these two special Shih Tzu.

There are so many special aspects to this pair of precious dogs that we scarcely know where to begin. First, it was a very heartbreaking but well understood decision for the first owners to relinquish this pair. It was also their wish that the dogs be adopted together since they’ve been together since Fenway was old enough to be adopted as a puppy.

We tend to believe that no human wishes to grow old alone and the same situation was considered for Boston when Fenway was adopted 4 years ago. Please don’t shake your head and think that Boston being 13 years old is like the umpire calling “Out” at first base. There’s definitely more bases to be reached by this devoted dog. The great small breed of Shih Tzu can live for many more years especially in a loving and caring home with a younger companion to remind them how to stay young.

Since there’s so much information available on this bonded pair, we’ll give you the basics. Both are house broken and have certain commands in place for such. They will go to their crate on command and they love their certain toys, treats and walks.  Fenway is especially playful bordering on goofy while Boston has grown to the more subdued playful ways of a tender motion and enthusiasm and leaving the horseplay to Fenway.  Walks are always enjoyed by these boys. It’s not necessary to play baseball in your back yard with them. J

Both dogs are up to date on veterinary care and records available. As stated above, the foster mom has much more information on this pair.

It’s Furbaby Rescue’s policy that no young children be in the home. Fenced yards are advised with no escape routes.

Doggie thoughts:

 “Why won’t they adopt me? Is it because I’m a senior?

I wouldn’t overlook them just because they’re a senior.

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

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

People thoughts:

For me, a human, I’d rather know that my pet is waiting for me on the other side versus me dying first and leaving my beloved pet’s future to chance. Sometimes those we ask to take over our pet’s care after we’re gone, don’t always do so.  After all, we’d be gone, we’d never know

"The Animals Savior"
Copyright Jim Willis 1999

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"
