Advice when adopting a new Shih Tzu
Its great that you are interested in adopting a pet, but please read the following advice beforehand :
- Read our detailed Information guide about dogs for potential new dog owners.
- Most rescue centres will not rehome a dog if you work full time, this is because it is unfair to leave a dog alone at home for most of the day. If however, you can show the rescue centre that your dog will be visited throughout the day either by yourself, a neighbour, a friend, a family member or a professional dog walker then please explain this to the rescue centre.
- Do you plan to walk the dog a mile or more every day?
- Please consider your personal circumstances before you make the decision to adopt a pet. Most pets in rescue centres have had at least one previous home, and therefore it is important that their next owner can give them a home for life.
- Read our article entitled Why Adopt a Pet?
- When adopting most pets like Cats or Dogs, rescue centres will want to visit your home to assess your suitability for rehoming the pet, it is advisable to be as honest as possible.
- Can you afford the costs of keeping the pet? As well as unexpected veterinarian bills? Including food and vaccinations?
- Do you have the time to spend with the pet, including grooming? Remember, some pets may come with behaviour problems? And some pets have longer coats that need more attention?

(Think carefully how would you deal with these changes as they impact on your ability to care for a pet). Read our article on The top five reasons people give for re-homing their pets.
