In shelter Dog

Spring, Texas, 77373
Pet name:
Shih Tzu, Mixed
Tan, Yellow, Fawn with Black
Coat length:
Caught you looking!  My name is Chewbacca.  But, you can call me Chewy.  I am a truly an amazing boy.   I am very smart and am extremely obedient.   I do have one issue.   I am very shy and need time to adjust to new people and new environments.  
I will need a quiet transition period while you prove I can trust you.   Once I do, I will love you forever.   I am a Big Cuddler and want to  be with you.  I am what my foster mom calls a lap dog.   I give the best hugs and kisses.  I know lots of smart things.   I know my name and come when called.   I am leash trained and love my walks.   I can use a potty pad, or outside to do my business.
Chewy does not like storms or loud noises.   He doesn't trust the vet, nor a groomer. He will need a very patient, kind person who will take time to make friends with him.  It works, we have done it. But any new people he encounters outside of his home willnot be his friend until proven otherwise.
I love older, more considerate kids as well as adults in my home.   I would love to have a furry playmate in my new home.
Chewy will live a long life.   Usually 18 to 20 years.   If you are not able to commit to the next 18 years, please do not apply.   Chewy will need a stay at home person.   Not long hours left alone.   If you work away from home, please do not  apply for him. =========================================================

  Puppies  that are under 4 months old cannot be adopted outside of our Veterinary Service area.  Please call for specific locations.  Children under 8 years old  often are not a good match for our puppies and dogs.   In order to protect both, your child and our rescued dogs/puppies from harm, we seldom if ever adopt to families with young children. 
 Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events.  Thank you for considering a rescue!   The adoption fee includes vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip.
Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.  It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it. 
 NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others. 
 AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of     donations     in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any     donation    , no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.

AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
