Shih Tzu
Shih Tzu, Mix

An adotable dog in Parksville, BC

  • Senior
  • Small
  • Male

Jake was born in July of 2000. He originally was owned by a family whos lifestyle could no longer handle a dog.

Jake is a well behaved dog but is VERY over weight. He does have a thyroid problem for which he is on medication. We are getting this in control and have him on diet food and excercise which is helping with his weight. His previous owner was very old and did not give him medication regularly which led to the weight problem.

The medication is not expensive but we will provide medication for the first year.

He loves to swim and be cuddled. He does not like small children. He would probably prefer a home with elderly people and no other dogs.

All Jake needs is a simple diet, a little exercise and oodles of love.
