Rookie ~ Male ~ Shih Tzu ~ DOB 03/04/2021 ~ 10 lbs

*Rookies pictures were taken prior to him being shaved down due to severe matting*

Rookie is a white Shih Tzu who was surrendered by his owner due to her illness. He is 18 months old and full grown at 10 lbs. He is an adorable little dog. His prior owner did not keep up on his brushing and grooming so we took pictures of him fluffy and then we had to shave him down. Please remember that this dog’s coat needs a lot of upkeep and will require life long grooming appointments. He has beautiful soulful eyes, is calm and well behaved in his foster home. He will bond quickly with his person. Rookie is not completely housebroken and will need an owner who works from home or who is around on a daily basis to help him become completely housebroken. He is off to a good start in foster care. He is not a big barker but he makes cute little noises and sounds. Listen to him carefully and he will tell you about his day. Rookie has always had another dog in his prior home and we want that for him this time around as well and priority will be given to households with another dog for him. He is learning to play with toys, he loves to carry his Nylabone around and chew on it. Kids should be 7 and older please. He loves to sit on his hind legs and beg with both paws. Rookie has been neutered, is current on his vaccinations and is ready to be adopted. No out of state.
