A Male Shih Tzu-x presently Available For Adoption

Hundreds of dogs come through the Animatch doors every year and for the most part they are given up for the same old excuses:  no time, new baby, moving, too much dog.  However, on occasion there are dogs who have had caring homes who are surrendered for reasons beyond anyone’s control.  That is the case for Rikky; we are happy that he was entrusted to our care until we find him a new home.  Rikki is friendly, sweet, and seems to miss the one-one-one attention from his human.  If you are looking for an affectionate dog, you can count on Rikky to come through for you.  Even though he might be shy at first, his desire to be loved and pampered makes him come around very quickly.   Although Rikky is 10 years old, he has a lot of spunk and wag in his tail.  A family without young children would best suit him.  He gets along with other dogs but he is more focussed on human companionship.  Animatch hopes to find him a home where he will experience the same kind of love and devotion that he once knew.  Please fill in the Adoption Form if you would like to give this deserving dog his second chance at happiness.

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
