Here’s my stats:
Possible Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: I’m a male, guy, hombre
Colors: White with gold brown patches
Age: 7 years old
Weight: 17 pounds
Special Needs: Female only household
Ideal Home: As it says above, I REALLY don’t like human males-sorry all you guys out there. I would do best as an only dog or maybe with another really calm, quiet dog
Now for the good stuff!-
Mostly I’m a laid back boy, though I will play a little bit with some of the other dogs. I love toys, the squeaky kind. I like boy and girl dogs okay but what I really prefer is my female human! I love to cuddle with my foster mom and her sister and I follow them around the house. You might call me a bit of a Jekyll and Hide…you’ve heard the story. To the gals out there, I’m a sweet, loving, cuddle bug, momma’s boy. But when guys come around, I get terrified and I BITE. I know, it’s bad and I mean no disrespect to half the human population, but I just can’t help it. I love to go on car rides and I also love to go on walks! Not a big fan of crates-are you? I’m not on any medications and I don’t have any current medical issues.
My foster mom says, ‘I can usually count on East occupying the bath mat when I step out of the shower. A real mommy’s boy!’
So, if you can make sure I will live in an all-girl household and you are prepared to keep me away from the guys, please give me a chance to be your boy! To start the process of adopting me or one of the other pups by filling out the application found at www.shihtzu-rescue.com.
PS. I've had ALL my vetting, and oh boy, it was a lot. Here's what I had done:
Distemper/Parvo shots – TWICE. One shot doesn't cut it.
Bordetella shots - ALSO TWICE.
A fecal exam so I don't have any bad worms. Treatment if I do.
A heartworm test. Treatment if I am positive for heart worms
BLOODWORK to make sure my liver and kidneys are working well, because you know, we doggies often have issues in the liver and kidneys.
A DENTAL exam AND cleaning if I needed it- yep, all my toofies are checked out.
See, that's a LOT. Ask your vet - that's a LOT.
