Theo presently lives in a foster home with several other large and small dogs and he gets along with them all great! He loves human attention and he loves to give kisses.

Rescue Me ID: 17-11-04-00393Matthew (male)

Shih Tzu Mix    Age: Adult

    Date into Rescue: 8/4/2017 Reason for being in rescue: nc shelter- owner surrender- can't care for. Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Matthew has demodex mange. He has very bad skin right now and we are working through that. He was originally put on apoquel for allergies bur had a reaction to it so we are now transitioning him to a totally grain free food. Weight: 10.1 lbs needs to be 12 lbs Height:about 11' at the shoulder Adoption Fee: $269 Fence needed? No What kind of home would be best for me? Matthew needs someone that will keep up his skin care and let him lead a stress fee life. Demodex mange can be ... (Read More)controlled with a happy life and Bravecto flea/tick preventative. Matthew's life has been far from happy. We're going to change all that. What is my personality like? Very happy and eager to please. He is still a bit cautious because he's been through a lot but as we get away from the past, he's opening up and showing us a very pleasant personality. He loves to climb on the second shelf of the bedding storage and snuggle down in the middle of all the clean pads . I imagine it feels good to be able to feel soft cloth against his skin again after being so badly matted for so long . How do I act when I first meet new people? Inquisitive and curious without being pushy. Offer him a treat and his heart is yours . More tips and tidbits: When Matthew arrived, he got out of the crate and looked at us like 'please now what are you people going to do to me.' Matthew had been severely neglected in his previous home. He was so badly matted and his skin was so inflamed that his tail was matted to his body. During the shave down it was discovered that his tail was so badly infected it had to be amputated. Matthew's tail is now about 3' long. Since he arrived and has learned that we are not going to hurt him anymore, he is starting to relax and we're seeing a playful and happy side. There is nothing he wont' eat but he waits to be fed. He does not dig in the trash but he's waiting eagerly for his treat. He'll put on his needed weight in no time. He gets along well with his fellow dogs at his foster home and is in general very laid back. Matthew says no cats please. They are fun for chasing and barking it but not so much fun for living with. I think he's allergic to them. House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule. My age: Estimated birth date 8/10/2010 (Less)

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