Pattie is a friendly and curious Shih Tzu who was surrendered by her previous owners. This spunky little lap dog loves getting belly rubs and chin scratches, but she gets unhappy if you stop too soon! The little snorts she makes are very endearing.
Pattie is housetrained and can be left uncrated during the day as she is not destructive when left alone. She occasionally marks on carpet but that is becoming less and less frequent. Pattie is quiet during the day, but she will let you know when she starts getting hungry at dinnertime! Pattie is good on a leash and is always excited to meet other dogs. Pattie can be a little too “forward” with other dogs and therefore we think she would do best as the only dog in the house.
Pattie came to us with a double ear infection and itchy skin. We have been successfully treating her for environmental and food allergies. She will need to stay on allergy medication and a special diet in order to keep her comfortable and happy.
Because of Pattie’s age and size, we will only adopt her to a home with children who are 6 years old and older.
Adoption Fee: $300
