Adoption Area: East Tennessee

Sesame needs: Hi! I'm Sesame. I'm a 9-pound male, 1 yr old, maybe Schnauzer/Shih Tzu/Poodle/Maltese looking for my forever family. I was rescued from the shelter and was a nasty, matted mess and found my way to Small Breed (so not too much is known about my first year).

I am very sweet and love to show affection to my foster mom. I am great with other dogs, big and small, and love all humans. I took to crate training immediately and have had very few accidents in the house. I do fantastic on a leash and do well riding in cars.

I am still a puppy and therefore have very puppy-like behaviors, e.g. running around, playing with toys, playing without toys, and trying to eat everything. I have not been destructive towards furniture and shoes, but that's a possibility if I get bored and am left unattended. Also, though I know my name, I do not always come when called and may be a flight risk so I will require a fenced yard (where I can run off some of this puppy energy).

I am neutered, have had all of my shots, am microchipped, and am heartworm-free. I have an ear infection that appears to be lingering (I'm not a fan of receiving medication in my ears or having my face groomed, I can't be perfect), but we are working on this. I have medications for my ears, so hopefully I am on my way to recovery. Other than that, I am in great health and would love to start my next chapter. My adoption fee is $175.
