Breed: Shih Tzu

Weight: 13 lbs

Age: 6

Personality: Sissy is as sweet as can be. She is friendly and loving to everyone. We call her our resident teddy bear because she is so confident and well-socialized, Sissy will let anyone pick her up and hug her; and all she would do is melt into you. More so, she is not needy and has no anxiety, and is comfortable in any environment. Sissy is a quiet, calm, and low energy dog. Sissy spends her day lounging and napping. She is the happiest cuddling next to her person. She also likes to go on walks and have occasional play time.

Coat: Hair, grooming required, no shedding

Training: House manners and socialization, knows "sit" and "down"

Potty trained: Yes

Health: Healthy  

History: With dirty, shaggy hair and a tick infestation, Sissy had little chance. After staying at the Los Angeles shelter for three weeks with no inquiries, Sissy was rescued and was given medical care and a spa day at the groomers.

Fostered in: Orange, CA

Type of home: Sissy would fit well in a home with someone who would like an adult trained dog and who just wants to enjoy a companion. She doesn't ask for much! A walk and some cuddles will make her the happiest dog.
