My story

Born 10-13-09, Teuscher is a Shih Tzu through and through. There is nothing Teuscher likes more than a nice belly rub! He has beautiful hair that grows, so he must be brushed daily and groomed regularly. Teuscher is bowlegged, and consequently we limit his activity so that he doesn’t overdo it and we avoid letting him climb stairs. Teuscher can be possessive of his toys, so we are mindful not to take anything away from him unless we trade it for a treat. Teuscher weighs 14 lbs.
