Phiffer is a 12 year old neutered Shih Tzu. His owner has known him for 7 years and took him in from a family member who couldn’t keep him 1 year ago. Phiffer’s owner had to surrender him due to lack of time. Phiffer seems to be losing his vision.
Phiffer is friendly/outgoing with new people. He is relaxed, playful, and tolerant with children and plays gently with all people. He lived with an active, young, small, male dog in the past and was relaxed, playful, affectionate, and tolerant with him and they played exuberantly. Phiffer hasn’t bit anyone.
Phiffer hides in the bathroom or under furniture during storms. He doesn’t mind when someone takes his food/treat/toy, moves him off furniture, holds/restrains him, wakes him up, bathes him, or brushes him. He moves around a lot when his teeth are brushed. He had nail and fur trims at the vet. He’s friendly with strangers who approach his home/family.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Phiffer’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, mellow, and low energy. He follows them around. He plays with squeaky toys and plays fetch. He lived inside and slept on a dog bed. He ate dry Blue Buffalo senior dog food and got bones as treats. He’s housetrained, potties anywhere outside, and doesn’t have accidents. He’s well-behaved while left alone. He was crated during travel and did well. He sits when asked. He went for slow walks and didn’t pull on his leash. Off-leash, Phiffer stays close to his owner.
INTAKE: Phiffer had a soft, relaxed body during intake. I approached him and he was tolerant and soft-bodied while I pet him, scanned him (-), collared him, picked him up, positioned him for pictures, and walked him. He was quiet. He walked around a little and lied on a towel on the floor. He walks slowly and nearly bumps into things.
