found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.
Artie is a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix, approx 5-6 years old. He is neutered, micro chipped, up to date with vaccines, and also has had his teeth cleaned. He was quite thin when he first came into our care, but has gained weight nicely and should be kept at his present weight (approximately 13 pounds). His front legs are much shorter than the rear legs, so too much weight will make it hard on him as he ages. Artie came to us with a mass on his shoulder - this has been removed and the biopsy was benign,
Artie is a gentle soul that is great with people and other dogs. He’s not the type of dog that is playful with other dogs, but greets them calmly. He loves to cuddle, sleep in the human’s bed and gives lots of kisses. He loves his walks and being out in the yard. I would not recommend him for an apartment or condo living because he can be vocal when first left alone. A calm dog would likely help with his separation anxiety.
One funny thing with Artie is that he drags his feet - I can always tell when he is coming by the clicking of his paws. Artie would suit a calm home, where someone is home most of the time. He has been a delight to care for on his journey to his forever home.
