Animal ID: RENNY-PARenny (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

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

    With his bright smile and luxurious long white and grey coat, Renny has to be one of the cutest little dogs in Pittsburgh. Rennie is likely a mix of Lhasa Apso and Shih Tzu, but his ancestry is rather uncertain. What is certain, is that this adorable little guy needs a very loving home with an understanding owner who will cherish him and keep him safe, happy and healthy. At about 6 years of age, Renny is a healthy little fellow. He is neutered, up to date on his shots and microchipped. Renny is perfectly house trained and also crate trained. Renny is a little sweetheart MOST of the time. Like most Lhasa Apsos, Lenny is a tiny guard dog ... (Read More)first and foremost. He barks whenever he senses that 'strangers are near', and he is dedicated to keeping his owner safe - even when there is no danger. These may be habits he learned as a stray on the mean streets of Houston, TX. For the most part, Renny is an adorable little clown, full of love and joy. Renny was adopted from a local rescue. They told the owner that he was a terrier mix with a calm and very gentle personality. This is true a good part of the time, but when Renny becomes anxious, he can be barky, nippy and nervous. Living in an apartment complex with people constantly coming and going is causing Renny a good bit of anxiety, and the more anxious he becomes, the more barking he does. As much as his owner loves this sweet little boy, she is worried about the effect his barking is having on her neighbors. She cannot take Renny for walks without worrying that he may bark at or try to nip passers-by, particularly children, should they try to pet him. Renny's owner wants to find him a home where he will be cherished - warts and all. He will need a quiet, adults only home where there are no children visiting. He seems to be good with other small dogs, but cats are not his cup of tea. Ideally, he would be best suited as an only pet for a calm, patient, retired dog lover with all the time in the world for him. Someone familiar with the Lhasa Apso breed and it's traits, and who is willing to overlook Renny's occasional lapses in good manners will be his ideal owner. He is a sweet little guy who really deserves to be loved. If you have room in your heart and home for Renny, please request to meet him today. Supplies and veterinary records will be included.

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