Tommy – 4 year old male Shih Tzu

Tommy is a gorgeous 4 year old male Shih Tzu. He came into rescue when he was picked up as a stray and wasn’t claimed. Tommy was initially very scared and displayed fear aggression, now he knows us he couldn’t be more different, but he will need a home that allows him time and space to come to you – it took him all of a day to feel comfortable with us!

Tommy loves to argue and backchat, he absolutely has to have the last word! He will do what you need, but has issues with being told and will mutter and grumble. He is a really comical little lad really, but such a cuddle bug at the same time. He loves going for a walk and absolutely adores snuggling up on your lap when he can! He is very happy and comfortable around women, a little more guarded around men, especially when being picked up.

Tommy is a typical little lap dog, he loves nothing more than cuddles, and he will quite literally spend his entire day snuggled with you! He is house trained, and mixes fine with other dogs, he is in foster with 12 others of all different sizes and he loves them, even beginning to play with them!

Tommy is great with the groomer but very scared of having his face clipped so this will take time and patience to help him feel confident. Tommy will need an adult only home, he has not been cat tested. Tommy travels very well but does want to sit on your lap!

Tommy is neutered, microchipped, de flead and wormed. He is fine to be left for short periods on his own and is not destructive. Tommy is a very sweet little dog, that is very low maintenance, that desperately wants a lap of his own to snuggle up on, can you offer him this?
