Chimera Little Blessings

Chimera’s therapeutic gift program, donating puppies & dogs to Autism & Veteran families in need of these Little Blessings.

We gift an autism or veteran family with a special Shih Tzu puppy or adult!

What is required to receive a Chimera’s Little Blessing Shih Tzu?

While we want to help everyone, we are limited in the availability of puppies and adult dogs ready to be a Little Blessing. If we have a puppy or dog that we feel is a match, we will contact you!

The longterm health and wellness of our puppies and dogs is of the utmost importance. We ask that families applying are able to provide the following conditions

  • An autism or veteran family in need of therapeutic support of a Shih Tzu.
  • Familiar with the breeds care, needs, and personality.
  • Financially able to support the puppy or dog through its life. Including vet care, grooming, training, and food.
  • We require all recipient families to sign up for professional training to better support the therapeutic nature and relationship. Baxter & Bella is online, accessible to anyone. Use Code CHIMERA25 for 25% off lifetime membership and unlimited professional support.
  • We ask that applicants ensure the puppy or dog will be safe in the home. Some individuals may be prone to violence or harming others during meltdowns or moodswings. This would put a small dog at great danger and risk of physical or emotional injury. There may be other appropriate therapeutic approaches for these individuals, but we MUST ensure the welfare of our dogs.
  • These dogs are intended as “pet only”. They should not be bred. Adults will be spayed and neutered before placement. Puppies will be placed with the agreement to spay or neuter before 1 year old.
