Arrival Story: We were looking around for an older Shih-Tzu to adopt as we wanted a friend for Murph. I decided to ask a friend where they got their rescue from and they gave me the name of the resccue. I liked the rescue on facebook and the very next day they posted two Shih-Tzu puppies for adoption. I figured it was too good to be true but then I read that they would be at an adoption event the same day. We took Murph over and met who they called "Zero" (now Maverick). His brother was already adopted by one of the rescuers family members and they told us right away that Maverick had a few applications too. We got to talking to the rescuer who adopted the other Shih-Tzu and she let us go back into a room with Murphy and Maverick. Murphy was happy, wagging his tail and sniffing him. We fell in love right away but we spent an hour in there with Maverick and eventually they gave us an adoption application to fill out. I wasn't getting my hopes up because they did tell us he had other applications and I know how fast puppies go. They approved us on the spot and we got to take him home. It all fell into place, even though I never expected to have a puppy. Maverick came from a North Carolina breeder, they found Maverick and his two brothers as well as their parents walking around in the road. They made a deal with the breeder and took Maverick along with his family out of there. Now he's ours and Murph loves having a little brother!
