MEET ZURI….also affectionately called “Noodle.”  This petite, 7-8 lb (underweight), 3-4 yr old, tan/white Shih Tzu, truly is a noodle!  She is an extremely loving…kissy…playful…precious little imp who came from the San Bernardino Shelter.  She was Rescue Only for being aggressive — she was just terrified!  The most aggressive thing we have seen is her hugging the dogs a little too much!  Oh…she is kind of madly in love with her toys and she shakes them to oblivion!!  She is a nonstop cuddler, with a tail that never stops wagging and is always in the “up” position!  Zuri even seems to be potty trained (or will use a pp pad in a pinch) — but you know we never guarantee.  We do think she sees dead people because occasionally, she will give a long bark (2 seconds) when all is calm!  When you look into her big brown eyes…you take it all in stride!  She is too sweet and adorable for words!  She does listen when you say “no!” — you just may have to say it more than once!  Zuri needs a home where her person and/or a small, young, active canine companion will be with her 90% of the time.  She would love to go with Onyx 🙂  You can see by the video below that she loves to play and whether it is her toys, you and/or another pup, all will make her happy.  Would you like a little girl who you can pamper and please and will give you love a million times over?
