Oh hi! My name is Gertie and I am the sweetest 13 yo Shih Tzu you have ever met! Which is saying something because I have been put through the ringer the past few years. I came from the South and was in pretty rough shape when I came to Pixie, including almost having no hair, but they got me all fixed up, and look at how gorgeous I look! Though I am a bit older, you wouldn’t have guessed it. I have fiery personality and still down for walks and playtime. I am not much of a hiker, but a short walk around the block is great. I do struggle a bit with stairs, so it would be best to have direct access to outside or at least only a few steps to manage. Overall, my fosters say I am very quiet and gentle, except for the occasional request of two to sit with you on the couch. They also say I am a great listener and very food motivated which helps with learning new things. Who says an old dog can’t learn new tricks? I am a very friendly gal, but do have some slight visual impairments and would do best in a home with older kiddos over 12. I do great with other dogs, but no kitties in my home please! Being very resilient, I am still on a few medications, but my bloodwork keeps getting better and better. And I honestly feel great! Sassy and hilarious, I am ready to retire into my forever home today. Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped with recent dental and bloodwork, with an adoption fee of $350.
