Adoption Application


The application process is intended as a guide to help you consider the ways a Shih Tzu or other small breed dog will impact your life and also help to determine if a Shih Tzu is the right breed for you. All of the questions concern various aspects of dog ownership that should be given serious consideration before deciding to share your life with any dog.

Some of our dogs do not do well with children or prefer to be in a home with children and for that reason we need to know the ages of family members. Some of our dogs have specific adoption requirements like a strong veterinary history or a secure, physically fenced yard.  We do not take these requirements lightly and we try to be as specific as possible on each of our dogs.  If they list a requirement, we appreciate your understanding that if you do not meet the specified requirements, your application will not be considered for that dog.

Applicant and Co-applicant must be at least 21 years old to be considered and we do require a complete street address.  If you do NOT include an email address, we will not be able to process your application.
