Hi, Newman here! I'm a really laid back and chill guy. I am a male Shih Tzu, about 8 years old and weigh about 14 pounds. I was an unclaimed stray at a local shelter in desperate need of a spa day (see my "before" photo when i was at the shelter). What they found under all that hair was adorable me!

I am settling in just great in my foster home and getting all those things figured out about living in a home where I am cared for and comfortable--no nasty, stinky mats any more for me! I quickly found the round, comfy bed and claimed it as mine. From there I can see everything that is going on in the house. I am coming out of my shell more and more each day - I have found the joy in back rubs (I will grin really big!) and good food with a squirt of salmon oil!

I am really good with potty training but I am not so fond of the wet grass. My foster mom is ok with me going on the deck when that is the case. Since I am just a bit older and we are not sure what my previous life was like, an adult home or one with children 12 years and older will be best for me.

Just think, for a mere $175 you can have a loving little buddy! Call or email SBRET about me! I have been neutered, micro-chipped, and current on all vaccines and heartworm preventatives.

The New Me!!
