Kip is a 7 year old male Shih Tzu, who came to The Mayhew on a recent rescue run. He is house-trained, can be left alone without problems and is very good with other dogs. Although not really formally trained, he will come when called and is very good when off of his lead, being happy to just potter along beside you. He will need one hour of off-lead strolling in the park every day.

GREAT NEWS! This Dog Has Now Been Rehomed
Thanks to good people like yourself who use on a daily basis, this dog has now found a new, permanent loving home. There are more dogs still looking though…

Kip is a sensible boy, who is not really into toys. What Kip wants is tummy rubs, cod and mashed potato (all mashed up for him, please), and sitting on laps for a cuddle. He loves his comforts and his sleep and his new owners will need to indulge his love of sofas, armchairs and human beds.

He is a real sweetie, and although he is essentially independent and likes his own space, he also has lots of love to give when the mood comes upon him. He is frightened of loud noises.
Kip only has one eye and suffers from dry eye in his remaining eye, which will need eye drops for the rest of his life. He is looking for a new guardian to provide him with the comforts he craves.

He has known to be snappy when he can’t get his own way and would suit an experienced owner. He would happily live with someone worked part-time, provided he had another dog for company. His new guardians will be taking on a eight-year commitment, which must not be taken lightly.
