'Hello! My name is Xavier and I am a 3 1/2 year old Shih tzu/maltese mix and weigh 10 pounds. One thing you need to know about me is that I'm blind, one eye from birth and one from infection when my first family abandoned me on the streets. I get around really well, but it takes me a while to get used to my surroundings(I tend to bump into things until I get my bearings). I love to be around people and other dogs, if introduced slowly. I'd do best in a home without small children since they are loud and move faster than I'm prepared for. I enjoy spending my days running outside, chewing on toys or raw hides or just cuddling. I know basic commands and will do anything for a treat!'
