He wasn't supposed to be here. lol His breeder had some issues with unemplyment and stupid 'breeding in the city limits' issues and begged me to take him before the city nabbed him. So, nine years later, I still have a grumbly Shih tzu. He's a nice enough dog, but he hates my cattle dogs and we kind of have some managment dances we have to go through to keep him happy and safe. lol He's fun to groom and experiment on and he's as cuddly a dog as I've ever met, but he really isn't set up for farm living.
He is actually the only dog I've ever had that killed chickens, too. Weird, never thought a stumpy legged, smashed face dog could catch and kill chickens. lol
I'm surprised that there is yet another shih tzu looking for a home at the shelter this week, also. I told my daughter NO!
I like him, but the eye drainage and heavy breathing and monster grooming out in the country just doesn't work for them well.
