Susie is a sweet little two-year-old female Maltese/Shih Tzu mix recently surrendered to our shelter. Her previous owner did not have enough time to spend with her due to their busy schedule. Susie was raised in a home with children, dogs and cats. Affectionate and friendly, this cutie is a social butterfly that loves attention. She will make a wonderful companion and pet for an adult or family with children over five. This tiny pup only weighs seven pounds and easily fits in your lap. She is very playful and loves to have fun with her toys. Susie does need to work on her housetraining and manners. She has not been fully housebroken and thinks anything dropped on the floor is a toy. Until she learns chewing is for toys only and to potty outside, Susie should be confined to a crate when not supervised. A fenced in yard will make housebreaking much easier and give her a safe place to run and play. Susie is very smart will catch on quickly with consistent training and praise. Susie is an amazing little dog that will make some lucky family a fabulous pet.
