MEET NINI….a petite, sweet, happy and cautious, small Shih Tzu Maltese mix!  Nini is precious, she is liver colored, 8 lbs, 4-5 yrs old…and she is a firecracker!  For her age, she definitely has puppy power ….she loves to wrestle and play with you, and shake her squeaky toys like her life depends upon it!! She came from the North Central shelter and got a bad rep because when the person who found her as a stray, reached under a car to get her and scared her to death…so she nipped at him.  For this reason, we don’t think she would be great with little ones, but older kids, who understand parameters for dogs, would be fine.  She needs training, just to know basic commands, so she can be the best companion she can be.  She loves other dogs, she loves toys, she loves to eat and she will love you if you give her a chance!  She won’t last long :)….she only deserves the best!  One thing Nini doesn’t like is being left behind….so carry her in your purse….take her to the beach….she will adore you!  Do you have room in your arms and your heart for Nini?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
