Hi, my name is Spooner. I am a 1.5-year-old, 7-pound male possible Maltese/Shih Tzu mix. I was at a local shelter and was very scared so SBRET was contacted to rescue me – I think I was pretty lucky! I have settled in pretty well and I am a sweet boy. I am working on going outside to do my business but will need continued reinforcement in my forever home as I still do have accidents. When I first come into a new situation I will probably do some marking and will need help getting through that also. My foster mom thinks I am very smart and if someone is home a good part of the day and takes me out on a regular schedule, I will get this house training thing down. I need a secure fenced yard and I am a young guy so I would not be a good fit if you only want a lap buddy. I would do fine with another dog in the house but that is not required. I have not been around young children so any children in the home should be 12 and over. I will require regular professional grooming. I have been neutered, microchipped, and am up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm/flea prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
