Shih Tzu
12 years old - Long coat - Male

Cheerios is a 12 year old Shih Tzu who we rescued from the shelter. A shelter is no place for a distinguished older gent like this one! Cheerios has a non-shedding coat that makes him an option for those with allergies or those who just don't want to clean up fur. He will require regular grooming and we will be looking for a home with a groomer lined up.

Cheerios has a typical Shih Tzu personality: easy-going, great with other dogs, cats, and people alike. He's a friendly guy who can be spunky at times but also loves to chill out on the couch with his humans. Cheerios is friendly, loving and hasn't met a stranger yet. He lived with several other Shih Tzu's when he first came in and he was right at home with anyone he met.

Now, if you're expecting a dog who is going to sleep all day, non active, uninvolved, then our boy is going to disappoint you. He's anything but ready to settle down. He's got a little spunk to him. He is curios and into all new things. He likes walks. He is thinking life is pretty grand and he's not looking to check out anytime soon.

Cheerios is an option for dog savvy cats. He met the dog friendly cat in his foster home and couldn't care less. Much like any good Shih Tzu.

Haven't had a dog before? He could be a great option. He'll teach you all the things that are grand about dogs but especially Shih Tzu's. Cheerios is an option for a home with children over the age of 6.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
