Animal ID: 17-05-07-00263Harley (male)

Shih Tzu    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    I have owned Harley since he was 10 weeks old. He has always been somewhat tempermental and it was suggested by my vet when he was a little over a year to put him down because he had bitten 2 people. I couldn't do that because I love him. He is now 12 years old and is urinating and defecating in our home everyday even though he is brought outside several times. Vet thinks its a behavioral issue. We have tried all kinds of training suggestions to get it to stop, but to no avail. Some days are better than others. This is now causing a major issue in my marriage and my husband wants him rehomed. We don't want to put him down but this has been ... (Read More)going on for over a year now and he is also getting more aggressive with my family members. I don't even know that anyone will adopt him, but this is my last hope. I really love him and this is incredibly hard for me to do, but I don't feel I have any other alternatives at this point. (Less)

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