Rescue Me ID: 14-08-09-00209  (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected 

    Shih Tzu - male (intact) - approx. 4 yrs. old. - 17 lbs. This cute little dog was loose on the street - no collar or tag - and followed us home. He was infested w/ fleas, wormy, etc. so we made a trip to the vet, where he was vaccinated for rabies. Fortunately, he tested negative for heartworms. He is now flea and worm-free, & on heartworm preventive. He will need additional vaccinations and to be neutered. Being a Shih Tzu, he will require regular trips to a groomer. He's mild-mannered, doesn't jump on people or furniture, and doesn't bark much. He seems to accept a leash but doesn't always want to go where you want him to! He was ... (Read More)fearful around a neighbor's 3 yr old child, although he didn't bark or try to bite; however, he probably shouldn't be in a household with young children. A close encounter with a neighborhood cat was uneventful, but we haven't had him around another dog yet. He's a typical companion dog and just wants to be wherever there are people, so he would probably do well with a retired person or someone who works from home. The only issue we're having is picking up on cues that he needs to go outside, so there have been a few accidents - but we're working on that and he should have us trained soon! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Shih Tzu in Arkansas
    Shih Tzu Dogs can make good pets in Arkansas if they match your IifestyIe. The Shih-Tzu is a toy breed similar to the Pekingese. Shih-Tzus are proud little dogs and loaded with personality. Shih-Tzus are gentle and do fine with children who are taught to respect the dogs. Shih-Tzus bark to announce people approaching their homes. Shih-Tzus need early obedience training and may require patience when housebreaking. A Shih-Tzu will do just fine in an apartment if it gets enough exercise.
