Petal is a 8 year (born 2010) old male Shih Tzu mix. He has not had the easiest life. He belonged to an elderly owner who was unable to care for him so he spent much of his time in a crate. Since then he has had a tough time finding his “forever” home. Petal is a shy boy who tends to be a bit fearful of new people. He does warm up when someone takes time with him. He needs a loving, patient owner who understand that new people and experiences can be a bit frightening. A quiet, low key home would be best for him. He will become quite bonded to his owner and will follow them around the house or sit close by. If you are able to give this sweetie the home he has been waiting for and so deserves, please fill out an application. All references will be checked including the vets. A pre-home visit is mandatory for all dog adoptions.
