Shih Tzu, Mix

An adotable dog in Philadelphia, PA

  • Adult
  • Small
  • Female

This little girl is in shock - one moment she's in a safe home and content, and the next moment, her owner has died and she is in a shelter. She's a lovely social low-energy girl, although scared to be in this noisy shelter environment. She's comfortable with other dogs and she's cat-safe. Name: Mandy Breed: Shih Tzu mix (Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label) Age: 4-6 years old Weight: 5 pounds Reason for surrender to shelter: Mandy's owner died and she was brought to the shelter. If you are interested in meeting Mandy, please email dogs@phillypaws.org for an application. If you have questions, please email the above address or contact our adoption staff member at 215-298-9680, ext. 16. Animal ID#A21062826 (Posted on 9/27/13 by lo'b)
