Hi! I am Pumpkin, a darling 15-pound, 5-year old male Shih Tzu. I found myself at a local animal shelter--can you imagine a handsome fellow like me getting in that predicament? I never want that to happen again! Please, please, please can you be my forever family? I love people, especially ones who snuggle with me and give me treats. I really like to eat so I hope you have lots of yummy food for me.

I get along with all the dogs and people at my foster home, even the young respectful ones. I would really rather not spend my time jogging or playing with really energetic dogs as I am a pretty mellow guy. However, my foster mom thinks I need to spend some time walking and getting exercise as she thinks I am a little chubby. I say that is just more of me to love but...whatever!

I am doing well with my housetraining - I do need someone to continue to help with this. I would really rather not stay in a crate. I can do it and I sleep in one at my foster home, but I would really rather sleep in bed with you or on soft, cushy doggy bed. One of my favorite spots is on the back of the couch so I can look out the window!

I guess I need to tell you some specifics about me before I sign off here. I have been neutered, microchipped, and am up-to-date on all my shots, heartworm and flea prevention. On November 8th, I will have a recheck on one of my eyes that has a healing ulcer. I will also have dental cleaning, so I will have sparkly teeth and super fresh breath after that!

If you think you are the family for me, please contact SBRET. My adoption fee is $175. Please hurry, I am not a very patient little man and I would really like to be home for the holidays!
