Maltese / Shih Tzu
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Lizzie (maltipoo) and Banjo (shih tzu pooldle mix) were surrendered to Pathways when they lost their family. Their mama passed away and papa moved to assisted living. They've been quite spoiled, love sleeping on the human bed, posing on furniture, and would love to carry on with their traditions. These two are extra small in size and extra big on personality. They love to nap and guard the house (when they aren't napping). But they get really excited when going for walks. Sniffing all the bushes and marking as required.. trees, bushes, poles, hydrants, and rocks. They do a really good job. Both are fine with other dogs but Lizzie does get a little protective and will bark and do a fancy spin when she feels a dog is invading her space. At her full 7 pounds or so, she's really quite the threat with her spins. Banjo, who is just a couple pounds more, is very chill with other dogs he encounters on walks. He loves men, follows his foster daddy around all the time. Lizzie and Banjo are quiet and they are potty trained but may make a mistake if another dog has pottied in the house before, so 'nature's miracle' to take care of previous incidents would help them help you. Eating wise - both are picky eaters. Lizzie won't eat dry food and eats around it, he pretty much won't eat unless you feed him or place the food directly on the floor, but once he starts, he is a great eater and can tuck it away. He hardly takes treats, but she will pretty much eat any treat you give her. In time (creating a new tradition), Lizzie may find a dry kibble she likes (maybe sprinkled with chicken broth), and Banjo in time may be comfortable eating out of a bowl. Lizzie is about 4 years old, Banjo 6 years old. It takes them just a short bit of time to get comfortable with people - more of a 'let me come to you' type and tend to shy away from those who want to pick up and pet them a little too quickly. They sort of want to size you up first to see what you're all about. Any children in the home should be at least 14 years old and of a gentle nature. The household should be a calm one, and they would really love even a small area of grass in their very own yard. They are spayed/neutered, vet checked, vaccinated, and microchipped. They'll go to their new home with collar & ID plus harness and leash for each. Adoption fee is $520 for the pair. Meet them SUNDAY at PetSmart, 10030 N 90th Street in Scottsdale from 11am-2pm. You may also request an adoption application in advance.
