MEET CHURRO….and we named him that because he is sweet as sugar! This little 5 yr old, 12 lb, tan/black, ShihTzu Terrier (non shedding) is a character. Those big brown eyes will capture your heart in a NY minute! He was turned in by his owner’s children because he was ill and Churro wasn’t getting the attention he deserved. He lived half the time outside, the other half inside. I didn’t get the impression that they were dog people, as he really hadn’t had any training…but he is very smart! He stopped marking in the dog room in a week, but he does still have an accident or two in the house, so he just needs to know where to go. He is good on a leash but he does pull, so he would benefit from training. Sometimes he is extremely assertive on the street with other dogs, so he needs to be introduced slowly — and he is protective of his person, so the same with strangers (although he is 99% of the time wonderful). Churro0 is extremely playful with his roomie, sometimes a little too rough, so he needs to go to a home where he has a canine companion to play with him! Even a little bigger would be okay! Kids over 8 yrs old would be welcomed.
Churro loves to cuddle and give you kisses to let you know how much he appreciates your attention. He is not a big barker and does not bark when you leave…but he’d love to sit at your feet or on your lap while you work…so maybe you have a place reserved for him? He’s waiting!
