    2. Instant friendship The Shih Tzu rescue center may help you in bonding with the dog. However, it will take some time before this dog feels like it is yours in totality.

    3. Well trained it is wrong to expect that all the Shih Tzu rescue dogs are perfectly trained and will give you no trouble. In fact, these dogs are quite traumatized and when so, animals could behave very odd. While the basics will be there, it will be sometime before everything falls into place.

    7. Adult Shih Tzu rescue dogs are easier to train true. However, do not forget that these dogs have been at one time or other abandoned. The Shih Tzu being the sentimental dog it is, might loose its trust in humans altogether after this.

    8. Adult Shih Tzu rescue will behave responsibly true. However, once again it all goes to the past. You may discover that your dog has some very peculiar habits that you do not approve of.

    9. The adult Shih Tzu is a very docile dog true. However, in order to behave at its best, it needs the best circumstances as well. The trauma of being in a shelter, being abandoned, might make a little more aggressive that its original nature would permit.

    10. Cannot find good breed dog in a rescue - there are many dogs, which are of mixed parentage, true. Nevertheless, there are also a good number of pure breeds with papers that will be found in the rescue/ adoption shelters.
