SASS Rescue is a group of individuals that rescue Shih Tzus from a variety of situations all over the country such as high kill shelters to owner surrenders. We love and care for them in our own homes until a suitable permanent home is found. By having the dogs in our homes it enables us to better help you select the right dog for your family. Our goal is that our dogs will be in a loving home for the rest of their lives.
Shih Tzu is a friendly lap dog that at one time was bred to be a companion dog for Chinese royalty. Some say living in the imperial palace gave the Shih Tzu an arrogant quality, although they also display qualities of devotion and adaptability. They are not afraid to stand up for themselves. They tend to be sweet, playful, and trusting as well.
SASS Rescue is run strictly on adoption donations and the generosity of our supporters. We receive no government funding to save these dogs. We will not turn a dog away due the expense of treatment or location. Our belief is every dog should have a chance at a happy, loving life.
