He is a 14 lb. blue Shih Tzu boy. He’s 2.5 years old. Jake came from a breeder in Ohio. He’s working on his social skills, and trying to gain trust in people. He’s definitely a momma’s boy in his foster home. He gets along well with the other dogs in the house and would do best with a dog sibling to learn from and to comfort him. He sleeps in his kennel at night, but would prefer to sleep in his humans bed. He will retreat to his kennel if uncomfortable, this is his safe place. He’s house trained when kept on a schedule. Due to Jake's fear issues he will require a fenced yard to keep him safe from running. Jake loves toys, walks and rides in the car. He can amuse himself with toys for hours and is very puppyish in behavior.Jake will need someone with experience and be willing to continue to work with him gaining confidence and to just be a dog. He’s an excellent learner and is progress everyday. Jake is very nervous and has tried to nip in the past if he feels threatened.
