Rescue Me ID: 15-11-08-00292Cato (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Cato is 10 years old however he is EXTREMELY playful and needs constant attention. He is HIGH ENERGY so if you don't have the time or the desire to play and interact with him, this is not the dog for you. Cato is an emotional dog and when he doesn't get attention he gets depressed. He is an inside dog however he does fine outside for walks and time in the park. He loves to run after balls and will fetch it and bring it back to you over and over again. He will do this until he is exhausted! Cato is completely house broken. He is never crated. He needs someone home during the day or another pet to interact with if you are out of the ... (Read More)house. He is good with most older children; however it is best if they are over 10 years old as he can get overexcited with younger children while playing. He is quite dominant and prefers the company of older, gentle but playful dogs. Cato tends to be most comfortable with woman although he is not aggressive toward men. He only barks when someone is at the door or if he hears a noise outside. (Less)

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