Trixie is a 6 year old female Shih Tzu cross Bichon Frise and and Molly is 5 year old female Shih Tzu cross Pekingese fostered together in Gloucestershire.
Trixie and Mollie have come into our care due to the health of their previous owners – they have been with their owners since puppies and it was a hard decision as both these girls were very loved.
They have gone into an adult foster home with two other dogs. These girls are very sweet natured, Molly the one with the white face has a lot to say for herself but it’s more of an anxious thing she is not as confident as Trixie but she loves a cuddle and actually snuggles right into you like a baby under your chin.
When the Vet was checking over Trixie, Molly was very worried for her sister and kept trying to jump up to make sure she was okay. Trixie is a very sweet girl more self-assured but the same sweet natured and that is why they cannot be split up they are very bonded. They have settled into their foster home with no problems, sleeping at night, clean in the house, good on their leads and off their leads.
We also know they were fine with visiting grandchildren and friendly with all people they meet although Mollie can get a bit barky because she is not as confident but she does not mean it. They are living with two other dogs with no problems.
These girls have been used to a quiet life with a couple and this is what they need again, a country home would be lovely as again what they have been used too, they are not the sort of dogs that would adapt to being left hours on their own. They have been used to sitting on the sofas so need a home that does not mind that. They sleep in the lounge with the other dogs at night but previously slept in the bedroom with their last owners. They also need lots of love and cuddles.
It’s important whoever takes them on understands grooming breeds and their needs, also the expense as they will need to go regularly to the groomers and this does not come cheap.
We will not split these girls up so please do not ask.
Both girls are shortly going to be spayed, vaccinated and Trixie will have a dental before they leave our care – both will also be flea/wormed.
