(Read More)stop rubbing he will put his paw on you and pull your hand back to give him some more rubbing, he will sit up on his back legs like a kangaroo for more rubs if he is in your lap. He will come in from outside sometimes and run around the house all frisky and playful, usually with a toy in his mouth ready to play. Harold sits on command for a treat and takes treats nicely. Harold likes to play with toys and will fetch a soft dog toy and bring it back to you. Harold is housetrained and dog door trained. Harold has a medium to low energy and walks well on a leash and really enjoys going for a walk. Harold also loves to go for a ride in the car and he is crate trained both in the car and at home. He sleeps all night in his crate without a peep. Harold enjoys the company of another dog but Harold needs a home without cats. He would do best in a home with an older couple or retired person or someone that is home on and off during the day. Harold needs a family with children over the age of 14 years of age as he has low tolerance for the energy of young children. He currently lives with 3 other dogs and 2 teens (15 and 18 years old) and does great. Harold is in great health but does have an allergy to wheat, so grain free dog food for this little guy. If Harold sounds like a good fit for your family please go to and fill out the application and his Foster Mom will get back to you soon. Harold's adoption fee is $40 Harold is neutered, vaccinate and microchipped. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Shih Tzu in Idaho
    Shih Tzu Dogs can make good pets in Idaho 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.
