Betty is a 5-year old Shih Tzu being fostered in the West Midlands. Betty is a very friendly lap dog. She likes nothing more than being with you and giving licks. She loves throwing her toys around.
People – Betty is happy to meet anyone and everyone. She enjoys being groomed and is a cuddly lap dog.
Dogs – Betty does get on with all dogs she has 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.
Cats – Not cat tested
In the home – Betty is fully housetrained and sleeps on foster mum’s bed. She is non-destructive and does like to play with toys. Betty has been left for up to 3 hours without problems, but she will bark initially. She is also not too keen on having doors shut in the house so she can follow her humans.
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.
Type of home – 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 is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in the West Midlands.
