verifiedPosted Breed: Shih Tzu (long coat). Adoption Fee: $214.55. "Hi, I’m Minnie! I came from a shelter in Chicago as a stray where I caught an upper respiratory infection that turned into pneumonia. I’m all better now and ready to find my forever home! The vets estimate that I’m around 12 years old and almost completely blind with some hearing impairment. I am currently on medication for dry eye and I’m working on getting used to eyedrops twice a day. I don’t let these setbacks stop me though! I’m very curious and have figured out where everything is at my foster mom’s house by sniffing around and exploring. I am a laid-back girl and enjoy taking long naps anywhere and everywhere - dog beds, blankets, towels, the floor, or even on a pile of laundry! My foster mom said I’m a heavy sleeper and sometimes I get startled if you try and move me when I’m sleeping. When I’m not sleeping, I’m happy to be near any people that are at the house, either on your lap or just on the floor next to your feet. I’ve met a few older (12+), respectful children and I enjoyed getting pets and belly rubs from them so I think I’d enjoy having a home with older children who are knowledgeable and well-mannered around dogs. My foster mom also has another Shih tzu that I am always trying to cuddle with (unsuccessfully), so a home with another laidback, friendly dog that can show me the ropes would be great! I am not comfortable going down the stairs so I will need to be carried down them. However I've finally mastered going up the stairs on my own! I’m working on house-training and good walking on a leash or taking my potty breaks in the yard. If my new home has a fenced backyard, I will need to be supervised so I don’t escape or encounter any hazards. If you are looking for a laid-back nap partner, I’m your girl!" My adoption fee, including MN state taxes, is $214.55. I'm currently being fostered in the Chicago, IL area, but can be transported to the Minneapolis St. Paul area for the right family.

verifiedPosted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). Every minute matters when it comes to rescuing a Shih Tzu. We may get a short notice that someone needs to surrender their dog or a puppy mill dog needs a temporary home. We can’t help if we don’t have families willing to foster, and we are always in need of more foster homes! If you live in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Rockford or Chicago, IL areas and want to help save lives, please complete either our online Foster Sign-Up or download a word version here: http://www.northstarshihtzurescue.org/foster/ (please note: neither dog pictured are available to foster or adopt, both are in their forever homes) NorthStar Shih Tzu Rescue exists to benefit both Shih Tzu and Shih Tzu blend dogs and the people of our community. We operate as a no-kill rescue that provides rescue and adoption services, and meaningful outreach programs in order to advance the welfare of these companion animals, to serve and educate our community, and to make a positive, loving impact on the lives of both. NorthStar, located in Excelsior, MN, actively works to rescue Shih Tzu and Shih Tzu blend dogs from dangerous environments and shelters with the ultimate goal of placing them in loving, permanent, adoptive homes. We rescue unwanted, abandoned, and abused dogs. We have them vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, provide other medical care, and rehabilitate them in carefully selected foster homes. We also serve as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on the benefits of adopting an animal in need as well as responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, good nutrition, and positive behavior training. We strive to increase public awareness about companion animal overpopulation, commercial breeders, and to offer solutions to end the killing of adoptable animals. We work in alliance with local animal shelters, pounds, other rescue groups, and humane society organizations to ensure these animals are not forgotten.
