SHY TOTO WARMS UP WITH A FEW TREATS
Toto has lived a very quiet life with his former owner. He is loving and affectionate and is used to being top dog in her life. Recently a new baby appeared on the scene and Toto’s owner is too busy to manage the needs of both. He is currently experiencing a lack of attention, exercise and socialization with people and other animals. He has taken to hiding in quiet places when new circumstances or new people appear, however a handful of liver treats helps to allay the uncertainty.
This cute boy is a 7 year old shih tzu/bichon mix. When not shaved he is a total fluff ball. He is a champ with sit, stay, down and rollover and walks nicely on the leash! Although a bit timid when meeting new dogs, he will never be reactive or aggressive.
He is housetrained but in a new situation may have an occasional piddle.
A family experienced with timid, small breeds, with children 16 plus, possibly with another confident dog and a yard for him to romp in, is what is would be best for Toto.
