Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Shih Tzu / Maltese / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 15 lbs
Height: 12 in
Estimated Birthdate: 4/15/2014
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet, SC
Reason for being in rescue: Bam Bam was surrendered by his owners to a local animal shelter. CPR pulled him from the shelter.
What kind of home would be best for me: Bam Bam is a doll baby of a dog who knows his mind and can talk to you all day about what the two of you need to do today. He would be comfortable in a lot of homes but I think he would prefer one that speaks "dog" fluently and can converse intelligently with this sweet little guy.
What is my personality like: Bam Bam is a mixed breed with a lot of Shih tzu attitude. He sheds like the dickens so somewhere in there is some terrier along with perhaps some Maltese. He is very talkative and more than a little belligerent when he doesn’t want to do what you want him to do. He gets along well with big dogs and small dogs.
Bam Bam is not housetrained from a peeing perspective. Neutering has helped a lot. He has stopped marking constantly but we're sending him with a belly band as he trains on proper house manner. He knows basic commands and does love to sit with you. He is very talkative, and has a low grumble/mumble that he does when he wants to communicate that something feels good or another dog has gotten too close and he wants to let them know this is his lap at the moment. His new owner will have to be Shih savvy and understand that the grumbling is not aggressive growling. He does not exhibit resource guarding, although is not patient about waiting his turn to get to a bowl.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Bam Bam's estimated birthday is 04/15/2014.
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.
