Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Max is a 9 year old Shih Tzu - he enjoys playing, going for walks, and just sitting and relaxing with his owner. What he doesn't enjoy is being left alone during the day while his owner is at work. Looking for a home with a retired person or stay-at-home worker. Max also travels well and may be well suited to an RVer. He is timid at first and seems particular afraid of (and therefore aggressive to) children.

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