    Sophie was previously a breeding dog. I adopted her and was told she was house trained. This was not the case. Sophie needs to be let out often or she WILL potty in the house.

I'm looking for someone who is home so she can be let out. She will crate as long as she has another dog with her, if not with another dog , she will panic. She is good with respectful kids that just want to pet her. She loves adults. She's bouncy and cute! She has had her vocal cords cut bt her previous ...

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