Why Buy A Shih Tzu Puppy For Sale

Feb 9, 2008
Deciding to get a Shih Tzu puppy for sale is a great idea but try and avoid a pet store. A breeder is a great place to find a Shih Tzu puppy for sale. You can feel good when you get your Shih Tzu puppy from an animal rescue shelter.

Well your family all voted on it and everyone agrees that it is time to get a Shih Tzu puppy. Now it is up to you to find some place that has a Shih Tzu puppy for sale. It is not as difficult as you may think but there are some rules you should follow and some guidelines you should always keep in mind when buying a Shih Tzu puppy. Remember your family is counting on you.

First and foremost avoid pet stores altogether especially the national chain stores. The Shih Tzu puppy is a special kind of purchase and you do not want to leave the details of such a purchase to a clerk making minimum wage who knows nothing about Shih Tzu care or breeding. Add to that the horrible treatment pet stores give their inventory and it just makes you want to avoid pet stores completely and forever.

Probably the best place to get a Shih Tzu puppy for sale, that you can know and feel confident is a healthy pet, is from a local breeder. Make sure you check out several breeders before buying from one and make sure the one you are buying from checks out with at least some of the national breeder registries or your local vet. A good breeder will be with you for quite a while, so make sure you make the right choice.

Another reason for finding a breeder to buy your Shih Tzu puppy from is that a breeder will offer things like free pet insurance for six weeks after the purchase. This is a great service and can help you out a lot at that first vet visit. A breeder is also going to offer you feeding and care instructions and may even send you off with a food sample so you know what to buy your Shih Tzu puppy for healthy nutrition.

Another great option if you cannot afford the price a breeder will charge you is to contact your local animal rescue organization and ask them about the possibility that they have a Shih Tzu puppy for sale. A Shih Tzu puppy bought from an animal rescue shelter will have been checked over by a qualified vet, usually given all of its shots, tested for socialization and will be ready to take home. That grateful look on their face never goes away either.

A Shih Tzu puppy can make a wonderful pet for you and your family so be sure to take your time and decide which way is the best way for you to buy your Shih Tzu puppy. In the end you will end up with a wonderful family pet and just remember that they require a lot of attention so don't forget their care and maintenance and they will reward you with years of love.
