What is the best way to rehome a Shih Tzu?

The best way to rehome a Shih Tzu is to ensure you do your best to find an ideal place for your dog to live. Proper rehoming often takes some time and effort on your part, but you'll have more peace of mind when you put in the effort. Below, we'll look at some of the best ways to rehome your Shih Tzu, so you can be sure he has a good home.

Allow Someone You Know to Adopt

One of the best options is to let someone you already know and that you trust to adopt your Shih Tzu. Since you already know who they are and whether they're a good fit for your dog, it will give you some peace of mind. Maybe you have heard a family or a friend talk about wanting to adopt a dog. If you let them know that you have to give up your Shih Tzu, then maybe they'll like the idea of adopting him.

Usd a Platform Like Rehome

Naturally, we aren't all fortunate enough to know someone who can adopt a dog right now. However, there are still other options to try when rehoming your dog. Online peer-to-peer adoption services like Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com can help you through the process and make finding the right adopter easier.

When you sign-up you'll fill out a profile for your Shih Tzu, where you can add all of the most important information about your dog. You'll be able to add videos and photos, so potential adopters can see what your dog looks like and then publish his bio directly on Adopt-a-Pet.com for millions of potential adopters to see.

Choose the Best New Home 

Rehome will help to make it easier to connect with more people who are looking to adopt your dog. However, it doesn't mean that all of those people are good choices. You need to be sure that you choose the best person and family for your dog. The experts at Rehome can help you pick the right person by offering tips and information on how to choose the right family.

When you're looking through applications you should think about your dog's personality, and his likes and dislikes. If you have a Shih Tzu that doesn't like small children, you don't want a family with kids to adopt him. It won't be good for your dog or that family. This is why it's so important to be honest when you are creating your dog's profile and thoroughly reviewing the adoption applications that you receive.

Should You Give Your Dog to a Shelter or a Rescue?

Another option you may have considered is to surrender your dog to a rescue or a shelter. While these are options, most owners will want to try the other techniques discussed above before the shelter or rescue. Although shelters and rescues love animals and always do their best to take care of them, they often don't have enough space. Rescues are often full and can't accept new pets. Shelters can only keep dogs for a certain period. In some cases, they have to euthanize the dogs, even though it's the last thing they want to do. This is why rehoming is your best option.
