Bertie is a 3 year old female Maltese cross Shih Tzu. He came into rescue when his owners were no longer able to manage his behaviour. He will need a home that allows him time and space to come to you – it took him all of a day to feel comfortable with us!
He LOVES to argue and backchat, he absolutely has to have the last word!! He will do what you need, but has issues with being told and will mutter and grumble – He is a really comical little lad really, but SUCH a cuddle bug at the same time, He loves going for a walk and absolutely adores snuggling up on your lap when he can!
He is a typical little lap dog, he loves nothing more than cuddles, And he will quite literally spend his entire day snuggled with you! He is house trained, and mixes fine with other dogs, he is in foster with other dogs of all different sizes and he loves them, even beginning to play with them!
He is great with the groomer but very scared of having his face clipped so this will take time and patience to help him feel confident. He will need an adult only home with an existing dog, he has not been cat tested. He loves to get mucky – if there is a puddle, he is in it!
He loves to play ball and tug and knows tricks, he is a clever little man for sure, and he is not a dog to be underestimated, Bertie would love to do some agility or something that equally requires him to be active.
He is fine to be left for short periods on his own and is not destructive. Bertie is a very sweet little dog, that desperately wants a lap of his own to snuggle up on, can you offer him this?
