  Mandy, ~ 5 years Female Shi Tzu

Mandy is a 5 yr old (actual dob 12/1/2006) purebred Black/White Shih Tzu, who was taken in by her groomer when her owner passed away suddenly. The groomer had known her since she was a puppy. Mandy was found laying beside her owner on the floor when the daughter found her. Mandy was her owner's whole life; she always said that Mandy was more human than dog. She knew exactly what her owner was going to do before she did it. Because her owner was so over weight, she trained Mandy on puppy pads because she couldn't always get Mandy Sue outside fast enough. Mandy is crate trained and seems to be house trained too as she will do her business outside now. She gets along better with dogs her size or smaller, and is hesitant around bigger dogs. Mandy Sue is highly allergic to fleas, and will scratch instantly if one bites her. She is possibly also allergic to any dog food that has food coloring, so we feed her Fromm Adult. She has never been with children and can get possessive of her toys, so an adult dog-savvy home is preferred for her. She recently had a dental cleaning and also had surgery to remove a mammory a tumor. She is an adorable dog who has a lot of years to offer. We're hoping that someone who knows the breed will step up and adopt her, but also someone dog-savvy is fine too. She went to a holiday party this past weekend and did fine. She is showing us more and more great qualities and friendly behaviors so we think she was just terrified being in the kennel as she'd always slept in her mommy's bed. We've had many other small breed dogs who were terrified in a kennel, but were wonderful outside that environment and Mandy is no different. Please fill out an application if you'd like to meet her.
