Bucky has settled into his foster home beautifully. He is a dog that adapts well. He is reliably housetrained and is a wonderfully friendly, calm and very cuddly dog. He eats well and enjoys taking lots of naps, but then so do many humans! He loves to stretch out on the living room floor or couch and snooze. His foster mom looks at his nap time as a way to get her house work and projects done around the house! Bucky also likes sitting in the park or outside, looking around for someone to greet. All of his foster mom’s neighbors already love him and agree with her at how cute his is. He has met lots of neighborhood dogs in this manner, and they all seem to get along. Bucky wags and wags his tail around other dogs. He happily goes on walks nearby, although not very fast or long. Walking is great exercise for him so he remains at a svelte 15 pounds. It is also good socialization and mental stimulation for a senior dog.
Bucky had his teeth cleaned and he has almost a full set that sparkle beautifully for his 13 years of age! His health is very good and we expect he will be with his new owner for several more years. If you love the “Young At Heart” dogs: dogs that are gentle, calm, and love to be with you, Bucky is one of the best. The enjoyment he can give and the smiles he can add to your life can not be measured.
Bucky is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. His adoption fee is $50.00 plus sales tax of $3.64, for a total of $53.64. His foster mom would like his adopters to live within 50 miles of the Twin Cities and also agree to attend the Shih Tzu rescue reunion held each year in September.
