MEET OUR FEATURED DOG: GODDARD
Goddard is a Shih Tzu mix that weighs approximately 12 pounds and is around 10 years old. He came to the organization after his owner became ill and could no longer take care of him. He is house trained, walks well on the leash and is a world class cuddler! He has recently passed basic obedience class with ease and will soon be starting intermediate obedience class. Goddard also loves cats. Bordering on obsessive, he loves to watch cats and be very close to them. Although he will chase them when they run, he never shows aggression toward them. Alternatively, having been the only dog in his previous residence, he does not seem to care for the company of other dogs; growling at other dogs when they invade his personal space.
Goddard also does well in his home with visitors. He will often be found sitting on a visitors lap in the home shortly after their arrival, but does not like being approached by strangers. If approached to quickly, Goddard will growl and nip at the stranger. For this reason we do not suggest a home with small children. Although he has some quirks, this dog would make a great companion for someone who is willing to work with him.
Our adoption fee is $200.00, which includes all vaccines, heartworm test and spay/neuter.
