MEET CHAPLIN — our little black-and-white, 4-year-old, 13 sturdy pounds of one of the most adorable little Shih Tzus you’ve ever met!  His personality is so fun, and he’d love a family who will appreciate it and bring out the best in him!  He may be a little shy at first (especially of men), but he is very social.  Chaplin loves his toys and will dig deep into toy baskets to find just the right one…whether they are squeaky or beep, quack like a duck, or they just shake, he loves them all!  And while the shelter aged him at 6 years, he plays like a puppy!  He even nips like a puppy, so he probably shouldn’t go to a home with kids.  His new home should include another playful pup to keep him busy.  Chaplin enjoys sunning himself and following you from room to room.  He loves to go on walks and is great on the leash.  He is generally quiet, but he is still a good watch dog.  He seems to be house trained (or at least potty-pad trained) in our foster’s home, but we can’t guarantee at yours.  Do you have a place in your heart for this little cutie?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
