Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Pippin. He is about 5yrs old. Not sure what he is mixed with.. Looks like he may be a Shih Tzu or Lhasa type mix. He is good with kids, cats and dogs- after proper introductions. He NEEDS a new home with someone that either works from home or is home all day. He has extreme separation anxiety, which is causing him to go to the bathroom in the home, even if he had just been outside. A family or person who is able to allow him to be their constant companion is what this little guy needs. NO EXCEPTIONS to that. There are no known other medical issues.. He is Neutered and Up To Date on Shots. Vet records will also be available ... (Read More)upon request from the owner. This is a Rehoming. He is with his current owner, but needs to find a new home as soon as possible. There is a Pre-Adoption Questionnaire to fill out, prior to any meet and greet with Pippin.. And owner of Pippin reserves the right to do a home check and also has the final say on who he is rehomed to. The owner is extremely upset about having to rehome him, but this is what is best for him, since he really needs human companionship and someone that can really work w/ him on his anxiety/stress issues when alone.

She has multiple mammary tumors from not being spayed. Those will be removed and she'll be ready for home. Eleanor has some vision limitations but gets along just fine. She absolutely loves other dogs and must be either adopted as a bonded pair or go to a home with at least one current dog. She is very playful - will for sure want to tumble and ... (Read More)wrestle with her doggie pal so a younger dog may be a best match. Eleanor loves her people! It takes her a few minutes to warm up but after she does she won't leave your side. That is unless she's not off playing with her furry friends. Eleanor would also do best in a home with older children.

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.

    Shih-Tzu means Lion Dog in Mandarin. Shih-Tzus are descended from Lhasa Apsos bred with Pekingese. Paintings of dogs resembling Shih-Tzus exist dating back to the sixteenth century. Shih-Tzus were popular with Chinese royalty. Chinese did not allow Shih-Tzus out of the country until the 1930s.
