  • Our Mission
    Peke A Tzu Rescue is devoted to helping all babies in need, but our hearts belong to those that need us the most…the physical and mentally challenged and the seniors. We pray every day that there is someone out there for these special babies that will take them into their hearts and homes. Until that special home comes along they are part of our family and we love them dearly. We also know when we commit to these babies that they may be here with us for the rest of their lives. We offer the sanctuary and love that they need and in return they fill our lives with joy. We feel blessed to have these babies in our home to snuggle and love and will continue to devote our lives to those that need us the most.
    A wonderful way for those of you that maintain a lifestyle that prohibits you from physically helping these sweet kids is through sponsorship. It costs over $50.00 per month to vet, groom and feed each of our Haven Babies. Your name and location will be noted under the dog you have chosen to sponsor. You will be kept updated on a monthly basis as to how your “Haven Baby” is progressing. Sponsoring one of our Haven Babies is very fulfilling for you will be able to follow their progress as they heal emotionally and physically, grow to trust and continue to search for their Special Home that they so deserve.

    "Peke A Tzu Haven is where we want to be,
    Everyone here is so happy and carefree."

    Pupster Sponsorships
    We all know that there are different areas that we can help within rescues. Some individuals open their homes to the dogs for fostering, others aid in transports, vet visits and grooming appointments. We realize that many of our lives become very busy and there is just not enough time in the day.

    I am a very handsome 14 lb, 14 yr old black and white Shih Tzu boy. I was born April 2, 2005.
    My brother Romy and I lost our Dad and there was no one in the family who could care for us.
    It took awhile for me to get over my loss, but I have settled in nicely and know how much I am loved. I get along well with the other pupsters fairly well, but can be a bit alpha. I am not much of a player and just enjoy observing the happenings around me. There are times where I can be a bit nippy, but we are working on that. I do have dry eye and am on eye meds twice a day. It would be nice to have a home where someone is with me 24/7. I prefer no small children.
    To maintain my excellent health, my diet is extremely important. Mom wanted to feed us the very best diet available, so Peke A Tzu Rescue became a distributor for Oma's Pride Raw Food products. I am enjoying a yummy turkey & veggie mix raw diet now. Mom alternates between turkey, beef and chicken raw diets. Please read about my special diet. Mom adds the following supplements: digestive enzymes, probiotics, kelp, DMG and salmon oil for a healthy balanced meal. I hope that my forever Mom/Dad will love me enough to keep me on a raw diet.
    I am working on leash training and house training and do well during grooming.
    I am neutered, current on vaccinations, tested heart worm negative, on a monthly heartworm prevention and on a natural flea protection.
    Total vet costs can be seen at Foster Vetting Costs. My adoption fee is $300.

    I am a very sweet 12 lb Shih Tzu boy. I am approximately 17 yrs old.
    I was found as a stray matted to the skin with ear and eye infections.
    I spent some scary time in this place called a shelter for no one wanted me and along came my rescue angels. I am blind. I had to have my right eye removed and my left eye is genetically deformed. I am just the sweetest little boy. Hugs and kisses are welcomed and I am in heaven when being held in Mom or Dad's arms. I can be a bit grumpy with the other dogs, but have been told "We don't do that here", and I am beginning to understand that this behavior is not appropriate. I would love a home where Mom and Dad can be with me 24/7. I prefer no small children.

    I am a very sweet blue and white Shih Tzu boy. I weigh 9 lbs and was born on December 28, 2018. I joined PATR because I had a cleft lip. A cleft lip, sometimes referred to as a harelip, is an opening in the upper lip that can extend into the base of the nostril. The surgery for the cleft lip would be for cosmetic reasons only. Foster Mom and our veterinarian made a decision not to have surgery for many times it is not successful. So my little tooth sticks up and my nose is crooked. Also due to the recessive blue genes my coat is very thin.
    I am a very energetic and busy little boy. Foster Mom said God was very generous with the energized bunnies when he created me...wonder what that means? Oh I know, maybe it has something to do with me dragging the rag rugs out of the bathroom or possibly it is relative to me pulling the other pupster's tails whenever within reach. Geez, I just can't help myself..a pupster has to have something to do you know. I enjoy all of the other pupsters and join right in with the Shih Tzu Blitz. I love to be held and cuddled. At night I snuggle right into Mom and love to have her wrap her arms around me and hold me tight. I would like a home with another pupster to play with who has LOTS of energy and a fenced in yard to romp and play in. No children please.

    Are you ready to love me forever?? Well keep reading because I might just be the pupster for you! I am a 10 lb, 9 yr old red and white Shih Tzu boy. I have retired from the breeding world. I was born on June 20, 2010.
    I know my new family will keep me safe and in their lives for the rest of mine! I am a very nervous little boy and it takes me time to get comfortable with strangers. I do have healed ulcers on both eyes so my sight is a bit impaired. I am looking for a home where my Mom and Dad will have lots of patience for it may take some time for me to realize that all is well in my world. All I have known my whole life is a kennel so all of this freedom is new to me. I would be very contented being the one and only or having a non alpha playmate. I am not going to be a good fit for a family with small children. I will need a fenced in yard to run and play in and am really looking forward to meeting my very own Mom/Dad.

    I am a very sweet, approximately 14 year old black Shih Tzu boy. My owner passed away and none of her family had room for me so PATR welcomed me with open arms..
    I am such a sweet tempered lovable little boy. I just need someone to hold me close and give me lots of love. I do well with the other pupsters and enjoy cuddling with them. I am sight and hearing impaired. Also when I had my dental I lost all of my teeth, but that doesn't slow me down from eating!! I would love a fenced in yard and prefer no small children.

    I am an 16 yr old, caramel and white Shih Tzu boy and weigh 14 lbs. I was born on August 10, 2002. I was having potty accidents in my home so my owners sent me to live with the other pupsters here at PATR.
    I am a sweet, loving little boy and my favorite place is your lap. I love belly rubs and kisses. The pupsters here are great and I have so much fun romping and playing with them. I love all of the toys here and snuggling up in a doggy bed with the other pupsters feels so good. At night I just cuddle up to Mom and Dad in bed and think I am in heaven. I am blind, but get around just fine. I will need a fenced in yard and prefer no small children.

    I am 14 yrs old and weigh 12 lbs. I am a very handsome liver and white Shih Tzu boy. I was born on March 7, 2005.
    I am a retired breeder and was turned over to PATR because I suddenly lost my sight. I am a sweet, gentle, loving little boy who enjoys being held and cuddled. A visit to the ophthamologist revealed that the retinas in my eyes are detached. This does not slow me down at all. I have become comfortable with my surroundings and get around wonderfully. I snuggle in with the other pupsters, but much prefer snuggling close to Mom and Dad. I enjoy playing with toys and treat time is the best. I will only be placed in a home where Mom/Dad are home 24/7 and there are no children.

    I am a very handsome black and white Shih Tzu boy and weigh 13 lbs. I am approximately 15 yrs old. My owner's living conditions changed and she also could not care for me financially.
    I am such a happy, sweet little boy. I just love to be loved. Pick me up and cuddle me and I am all yours. I spend my days lounging around in all of the soft beds. That is of course when I am not snuggled up in Mom's lap. I get along wonderfully with the other dogs and love to settle in with them for my naptime. I do suffer from dry eye and need drops twice a day. I have also been diagnosed with Cushings Disease and am on appropriate medications. I would love a home where Mom/Dad could be home with me 24/7 and prefer no children.

    I am a handsome 10 yr old, 12 lb, silver Shih Tzu boy. I was born on December 6, 2008.
    I am a retired breeder. I am a sweet, gentle little boy and am a bit shy. I do love my laptime and cuddles and give very soft feathery kisses. The other pupsters have been great with me and I am learning to enjoy playtime with all of them. I am still nervous when meeting people I do not know, but Mom and Dad said we'll just take one step at a time. I am looking forward to finding my special home where I will be loved forever. I would like a fenced in yard and no children please.

    I am a handsome 2 yr old, 13 lb, black and white Shih Tzu boy. I was born on February 27, 2017. I joined PATR due to behavioral issues with the other canine and feline pets in my prior home.
    I am the sweetest most lovable little boy. I enjoy everyone I meet and am very social. I absolutely love any toy that is available and can be quite the acrobat tossing and throwing my toys in the air. Though I love all humans I am not fond of other dogs or cats. I just do not know how to play properly with another dog. For some reason when playtime starts I accelerate into bad behavior. Instead of playing I take the other dog right down. So I will need a home by myself and should always be supervised when interacting with other dogs. I will, however be the best pillow buddy you have ever had. I have so much love to give to my future Mom/Dad. I will need a fenced in yard and prefer no children.

    I am a very cute 2 yr old, 13 lb, blonde and white Shih Tzu boy. I was born on October 27, 2017. I joined PATR because my Mom and Dad had cats and I didn't like them at all! They tried different things to curb my aggressive behavior with the cats but nothing worked.
    I am a very sweet little boy once I get to know you. I am very high energy and am a nervous little boy so will need lots of patience and a routine exercise program to use up my excess energy. I do love laptime and will cuddle close to you at night. Beware for I am a pillow hog. I do well with the other pupsters, but can be a bit alpha. I would really love a home where I can be the one and only. If I was to find a home with another pupster he/she would need to be non alpha. A fenced in yard is a must and no children.
