to learn all about New Beginnings Shih Tzu Rescue!
New Beginnings Shih Tzu Rescue is a multi-state rescue with dogs being fostered in MN, WI, IL, IN and AR. This particular NBSTR site is a listing of the dogs that are fostered in MN and/or dogs that are available for adoption within MN. NBSTR does not have a shelter. Our rescued Shih Tzu live in foster homes throughout our home area. If there is a foster dog you are interested in, please make an inquiry by emailing
As stated previously we do not have a permanent shelter facility. All of our dogs are kept in foster homes. Please contact us to set up a meeting with the dog you are interested in AFTER you have completed the adoption process as explained above
Donations and Volunteering
Donations to our rescue effort are much appreciated.
We are always grateful to receive cash donations, or donations of supplies (all sizes of crates, premium dog food, towels, blankets, shampoo, toys and treats, etc.) Some of our dogs have special medical needs and donations can be made directly towards their medical treatments. We can also use help with transporting dogs and fostering. FOSTER HOMES are a great need! Typical time frames for fostering are from 3 weeks to several months at a time. It is very rewarding and you will enjoy watching the Shih Tzu blossom under your care.
