Shih Tzu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Juju, I am about 7 or 8 years old. I love to play with adults, children and other dogs. I also love to sleep and get massages :). Please consider my sweet Juju, I've had him for 3 years. Unfortunately, I am unable to keep up with taking care of him due to financial hardships and a very busy schedule. He suffers from an ear condition which requires drops, not a treating health condition. He is playful and friendly. All I want is for a good family to love him and give him the attention he needs.

He was just at the vet in November and is up to date on shots. He has a grain allergy and needs to eat grain free food.

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