Buying A Puppy?
You have decided that you would like to become the proud parent of a Shih Tzu puppy.
Congratulations!! Few things in life are more satisfying than giving a good home to a
loving and lovable puppy! But right now, before you start your search, a little research
will go a long way to ensure that ours is the breed for you--and that the puppy your
choose is likely to grow into a healthy, happy companion.
Before you fall in love with the first adorable Shih Tzu face you see, take the time to ask yourself some questions to be sure that you can offer a good home to a Shih Tzu puppy for the next 10 to 18 years. You may decide that this is not the time for you to get a dog, the Shih Tzu is not the right breed for you, or that you would rather provide a home to an older Shih Tzu.
Rescue dogs may or may not have been responsibly bred, but they are in need of a loving home. Since they are adults, STFSC are able to evaluate them for any signs of a problem before you fall in love, something that can't be done with a puppy. Our rescue workers
think this is only one of the advantages of adopting an older dog. If you are interested in additional information regarding rescued Shih Tzu, please email us.
