About Me:  More informaton about me coming soon!

Behavior Notes:  Gary has no behavior concerns at this time. He does have his quirks though. He has a security toy monkey that he loves, he beats it up, snuggles with it, sucks on it and sleeps with. He needs at least 1 30 minute walk a day, as his bowels depend on it. He can get going pretty quick on a walk, but he is low energy in the house. He's better with older children. He's good with other dogs on walks, he currently doesn't live with a dog at this time. House traininng is a work in progress, and needs to be watched closely as he gives very little indication when he needs to go out. He can get irritated, if bugged - he will bare teeth, growl a little and will nip if not left alone, but gives lots of signals before he resorts to the nip.

Health Notes:   Gary came into Hart from our target community. Poor Gary came in as one big mat and we werent sure what king of dog would be underneath! After a day at the spa, Gary came home a handsome shih tzu!!! Gary had a retained testical but the vet was able to find it and he was neutered. Gary also has a grade 2 heart murrmur. His is not showing clinical signs that this is a problem but the foster home will need to make his vet aware, so that his heart can be monitored. He is also up to date on his DACPP, Bordetella and Rabies. He has also recieved his microchip.
