Shih Tzu - Young - Male
Adoptable Small Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shots

Introducing Sydney! Have you ever seen a cuter boy than this little Shih Tzu? He is about 2-3 years old and weighs 8½ lbs. He was found badly matted and wandering in a neighborhood with another young grey and white Shih Tzu, “Millie,” who is also available for adoption.

Sydney is quite the little snuggler! He loves all the other pets in his foster home…but honestly? He loves the people even more! Given a choice between playing with another dog or a toy, he’ll take a person every time! (Give him a lap and he’s a happy little camper!)

Sydney enjoys going for car rides, napping quietly. He’s not a yappy barker and is not at all possessive…he just loves being loved on. He has a wonderful disposition, and while he doesn’t currently live with any cats or children, his foster mom is pretty sure he’d be just fine with either — providing the children are older and well-behaved, of course!

We would prefer to find a home where Syd can live with his friend Millie – or possibly they could be re-homed separately, just as long as the family has another small, sweet dog to keep Syd company, and a fenced yard.

Sydney is working on his house-training and is making progress. He sleeps in his foster mom’s bed, so his life has definitely taken a turn for the better!

Sydney is in excellent health and has been neutered, microchipped, and is current on his Rabies and DHP/Parvo, vaccines. He tested negative for heartworms and is on heartworm and flea prevention.

Sydney’s adoption fee is $300.00.

We would like to thank K9 Cabins for giving Sydney a spa day and photo shoot to help him find his forever home. If you would like to learn more about K9 Cabins, please visit their website:

Forever Home Canine Rescue offers a 3-week trial period with all our adoptions, just to be sure that the pet is a good match for the adoptive family. The fee is refunded if the adoption does not work out within the trial period. We want to be sure that each of our pets will have the perfect “forever” home!

If you are interested in Sydney and think he may be your ideal canine companion, please visit our website at for information on our adoption process.

Forever Home Canine Rescue adopts out-of-state, but we never “ship” or “transport” our pets. An approved adopter must come to North Carolina to meet their new canine companion and then take him/her back home with them.
