Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Maddie is a 10 pound, six year old Maltese/Shih Tzu who is super cute, loving and playful. She has had a rough go of it for the past year or so after her elderly owner passed away. She was bounced around landing in a home where she was bullied by another dog in the home and forced to live in fear, in survival mode, under the kitchen table. When the owner threatened to put Maddie down I was called in by a family friend to rescue her. She was severely matted and flea infested and growled every time she was touched. She has now been spayed, shaved down and de-fleaed and in a little over a week in a safe, healthy environment Maddie is really ... (Read More)beginning to shine and show her truly sweet and fun personality and she is SUPER smart. Although Maddie is cordial with the other dogs in our house, she would be happiest as an only dog. She does seem to do well with cats as long as they aren't too young and rowdy and always in her face. Maddie's new owner will need to be patient while she takes time to adjust and trust. She is growly at first in some situations, but does not bite, and if worked with in a quiet, gentle way she quickly settles. She is proving to be a real character, very busy, nosy and engaging and wanting to be included in whatever you're doing. She loves to go for walks and play with her toys (she's great at fetch) but is also happy to sit on a warm lap and snuggle. She also loves to go for rides but can be nervous and fidgety at first. Maddie is housebroken, spayed and UTD on vaccinations (she is Lyme Positive and currently receiving meds.) Rehoming fee $225.00 '|..FMI please e-mail or call 207-395-5032 (Less)

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