My story

Attention Shih Tzu lovers: Meet Theo, an eight to ten-year old male. At 14 pounds, Theo is the perfect size to be your faithful companion. He has a spine issue that gives him a little hitch in his gitty-up. Aside for a distinctive walk and being slightly off balance at times, Theo is not in pain and the vet is not recommending any treatment.

You can look at that face for hours and never see the same expression twice. Theo is a happy little guy, looking for a home where he can watch the world go by laying at your feet or, better still, sitting next to you on the couch.

Theo is crate and house trained. He gets along well with other dogs but hasn't been tested around cats or young children.

Theo has been neutered, is current on vaccinations, has tested negative for heartworm and has been microchipped.
