Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Shih Tzu (long coat)
Estimated Birthdate: 3/23/2009
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Owner release, health of owner.
Special Needs: None noted.
What kind of home would be best for me: I would do well in a quiet, structured home with firm owners and as an only dog home.
What is my personality like: "I am the type of dog that loves affection but only on my terms! I do not need to be cuddled up in someone's lap all of the time and I am perfectly content doing my own thing. I spend most of my days curled up in a comfy blanket and napping. I do not know any basic commands but I do walk well on a leash. Although, I do not care too much for being outside.. I am a lazy boy. I can be stubborn and if you push me, I will snap at you. Please don't pick me up, that makes me uncomfortable. I know how to crate myself when asked and I love treats. I ignore cats. I need a home with owners that are experienced with stubborn boys like me!
How I act when I first meet new people: I do not care for people I do not know very much. They can win me over with treats.
Tips and Tidbits: I'm like a sour patch kid.. first I'm sour, then I'm sweet!
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.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
