Max is a 13 year old male Shih Tzu. The owners got him from a pet boutique when he was a puppy. A year ago the owners gave Max to their cousin but they found out they were not taking prooper care of max and had not taken him to the vet despite obvious health issues. He stated that Max is going blind and says his hair loss and skin issues commenced while under his cousin’s supervision. It has been approximately a year since Max’s last vet visit. He and his wife could no longer care for Max because their apartment was too small and there was no space.
Max is a house dog and was not allowed outside unless for walks but he had the entire first floor to himself. Due to these circumstances the owner stated that max has never been around other animals and has no knowledge of his behavior around other dogs or cats. Max has spent time around adults and children of all ages and plays with both playfully and gently, however around strangers he is shy and takes a few minutes for him to acclimate. He has never bitten or been bitten by another animal nor has he ever bit a person. Once max has an owner he is very attached to that individual.
Max has a fairly low activity level and does not have any resource guarding issues. He isn’t bothered when his food or toys are taken away, being groomed or medically treated, and is fine with unfamiliar people and objects approaching him or owner. Max is nervous and tries to run away while being bathed or having his ears cleaned. He is completely fine with novel environments and people approaching him or his owners but he always barks at bikes. Otherwise Max is very docile due to his age and does not have much energy or have a high level of activity.
Max is described as affectionate, calm, gentle, docile, attached and shy. Max has had an entire first floor to himself and does not make noise or destroy any belongings or property of the owners. He likes to follow his owner around the house. He does not really love toys of any kind and does not really go outside very much unless to relieve himself. Max knows two commands; come and Hishu(Which is the owners made up word for “sit”). Max has a diet of eukanuba Wet dog food that he eats 2 times a day. Max has never been crate trained but is very well trained to relieve himself during walks. when off leash he he follows and stays close and when on the leash he is easy to handle and doesnt pull. Max enjoys when you play him music.
The previous owner stated Max has never been around other animals and he had no knowledge of Max’s behavior around other dogs or cats. When off leash with other dogs at the Care Center, Max greets appropriatly and wanders the pen.
