February 2019 Update

Meg is a senior breeding female that was released just over a year ago.  She is still looking for her forever home, can you believe it?  Meg loves people and other dogs.  She would sit on your lap 24/7 if you would let her.  She is pretty much potty trained. She will go outside and on potty pads.  She has a playful personality that makes her foster mom laugh.  If you are looking to add a precious dog to your home, Meg is the one!

July 2018 Update

Hi Everyone, my name is Meg!  I am a 10+ year old Shih Tzu that was rescued from a breeding facility.  I have been really enjoying life for a year now.  The bestest thing that I can have is a forever home?  Is that forever home with you?  I love people so much.  I could sit on your lap and have pets all day long.  I used to have a bit of an attitude, but I am not like that now.  I love to snuggle with my foster sisters and brothers.  A little pup to spend my life with would be wonderful.

I need a fenced in yard as I love to explore on my own.  I am not a fan of a leash either, so that makes it pretty hard if I do not have a fence.  No small children please.  Adult children that understand dog's needs would be okay.  I am doing pretty good on my potty training. 

If you think you may be interested in me, please contact A Promise of Love   at  and the rescue  will  get right back to you!

Nose licks!


February 2018

Hi everyone!  Time to touch base with you again.  I am doing great!  Loving my life now that I no longer have to have babies.  I am a dominant little girl.   If you get in my way, I will let you know.  I would like a friend, but this friend needs to be docile so that if I get a bit punchy, that pup will back down.  I am not doing too good with my potty training.  It is touch and miss.  I am trying very very hard, but for someone that was able to potty in their cage for 10 years, it is going to take time.  Please have patience with me.  I love people.  I love to be petted and will come when called.  I need a fenced in yard though.  I am not doing too good on a leash.  My foster mom is trying to help me with this.  I have one bad habit though, I like eating poop.  This is very common for puppymill dogs.  We get bored and hungry and do what we need to do to pass the time of day.  Foster mom is trying very hard to break me of this habit.   I would love a forever home.  I make a wonderful cuddle buddy.  I need a home that is patient and loving.  A home that doesn't have any expectations. Please hit that adopt  button.  My Foster mom would love to talk to you.  You won't be sorry.

Meg Update:

Meg is healing well after her extensive dental and extractions. Meg will be getting her spay on December 22, 2017. The Vet requested a lengthy amount of time for Meg to heal completely from her dental before they spay her.

Meg is quite a dominant female and we are hoping she will be less dominant once she is spay.

Meg will be ready for adoption on January 1, 2018.


Hello everybody!

Welcome me, Meg, to A Promise of Love!  Today is the beginning of my new life.  I am a 17 pound, tan and white, 10 ½ year old Shih Tzu.  I am a breeder release, which means I spent my whole life making babies.  My foster mom tells me that I do not have to do that anymore.  That now it is time for me!  I am very excited!!

I am a friendly little girl, love to be petted, love other dogs, and love my foster mom and dad.  The ONLY thing I do not like is to be picked up.  That scares me a lot, and I try very hard to get away.  This means that I am probably a flight risk, so I will need a secured fenced in yard if you adopt me.  No small children please, as they may scare me.  Responsible children over 15 would be okay.

I am doing pretty good on the potty thing.  But still need some work in that area.

I will be available for adoption once I get my teeth cleaned, or pulled, as they are pretty bad, and I have my spay.

If you would like to donate to my care, that would be just pawsome.  Keep an eye on me as you will be seeing quite a bit of me in the future.

Noselicks and Kisses,
