Baby A1079115 is a 10yr old female white & black Shih Tzu/Maltese mix who was given to the owner as a gift from a family member 10yrs ago and is being surrendered due to personal problems. Baby was last seen by a veterinarian in 2015 and currently has a mammary tumor and a matted coat.
Around strangers Baby is friendly/outgoing. She’s spent time with an 8yr old and was gentle, exuberant & playful with them, the adults & teenager in the home. Baby hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal.
Baby has accidents around the home at times, the owner thinks it’s due to her being older. She isn’t bothered by the following: having her food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved, being moved off of furniture, being held/restrained or if someone unfamiliar approaches the home/family member. Baby hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting or had her nails trimmed. She hasn’t been groomed due to finances.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Baby is described as friendly, affectionate, playful & mellow with a medium activity level. She enjoys playing & resting. When the owner is home Baby follows them around. She enjoys ball, squeaky & stuffed toys (not so much anymore). Baby is a mostly indoor only dog who’s walked 2-3x a day. When walked she doesn’t pull on her leash. Baby sleeps with the teen or with the adult. She eats Purina dog chow food 2-3x a day and knows “sit”.
Baby allowed all handling. She allowed to be scanned (-), collared & taken pictures of (even though it took a few tries to get her to sit/stand on the backdrop as she kept trying to jump off the table or just stare down at the ground). Baby was then picked up/carried and placed into a kennel with ease.
