Betty and Doris are a pair of bonded Shih Tzu girls who are being fostered in the West Midlands. They are loving lapdogs who enjoy cuddles and want a quiet home together.
People – Betty is happy to meet anyone and everyone. She enjoys being groomed. Doris is very sweet and loves to be fussed by anyone available. Doris loves all people in the home and out, happy to be made a fuss of by anyone. They would prefer any children in the home to be older.
Dogs – Betty does get on with all dogs she had met but does bark and lunge if the other dog is on the other side of the street, this is only because she wants to meet them. She does like to sit on the window ledge and bark at dogs going past. Doris is happy meeting all dogs in the home and out. Prefers that they don’t pester or she will tell them off.
Cats – Not cat tested
In the home – Betty is fully housetrained and sleeps on foster mum’s bed along with Doris. She is non-destructive and does like to play with toys. Betty and Doris have been left for up to 3 hours without problems, but Betty will bark initially. She is also not too keen on having doors shut in the house so she can follow her humans. Doris is fully housetrained, sleeps on foster mum’s bed and is also non-destructive. She likes her food and treats but doesn’t bother with toys. They have been left for about 3 hours and have been fine with each other for company.
Out and about – Betty is not used to much exercise but does enjoy being out. Her only issue is barking and lunging at other digs if she can’t meet them. She travels well in the car. Doris is not used to much in the way of walks but does enjoy being out. She seems extremely fit and healthy for her age. Doris walks well on a lead and has no problems in the car.
Type of home – Betty does need to be rehomed with Doris as she has been with her since a puppy. She is very much a lap dog and isn’t used to a lot of exercise. She would be fine with older children although a quiet home would be best where someone is around for most of the day.
Betty and Doris are neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with their flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet them in their foster home in the West Midlands.
