Gibson's adoption donation is $350 and he is being fostered in Central Ohio.  He has been neutered, received his rabies, distemper/parvo, bordetella, bivalent canine influenza, tested negative for heartworms and started on prevention, as well as flea prevention.  Gibson requires a home with strong verifiable vet history, a securely fenced yard and a companion dog of similar size.

Gibson came into rescue from an Amish commercial breeder.  He is a brown and white, 8 year old Shih Tzu.  He has made incredible progress while in rescue but will still require a patient, quiet home that will be willing to continue his progress.  Gibson required an extensive dental cleaning that compromised his jaw and his jaw broke after the dental.  It has completely healed and is stable but he will require a home that will continue to monitor the jaw.  He has made a lot of progress on housetraining and does well if kept on a schedule.  Gibson requires a home with a securely fenced yard and a companion dog of similar size.  He does startle easily so no children under the age of 12 would be best.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the individual webpage of our dogs, you will be able to get more information each dog.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets. 

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
