JJ~tiny guy with big personality needs 4-ever home!

Ashford, CT

Hi everyone! I’m Jason, affectionately known as JJ. I was found as a stray on Staten Island, and was taken into their shelter at only 2 years old and 14 pounds. I am a little guy, for sure, but boy have I got a BIG personality!

I love to hang out with my foster mom and will jump up and down (that’s my little attention getting cuteness strategy) when she comes home. Sometimes, I just like to put myself in quiet time, but isn’t that normal for just about everyone? I can be affectionate and snuggly, but I can also be pretty independent.

I’m super smart, I learn quickly, I prance very well on a leash, I do fine when left home alone, and I am housetrained. (I also know how to use wee-wee pads, if left home alone for extended periods). I like to sleep in my crate, but I would also snuggle up in bed with you if you let me!

If I had my druthers, I would go to a home that was calm, quiet and structured (and without kids as I can get snappy with them). I don’t mind hanging out with other friendly dogs or cats, but I would be just as happy to be the star of the show. I love belly rubs, going on long walks in the woods and snuggling on the sofa with my foster family.

Now all I need is a forever home to call my own. If you are experienced with the shih tzu breed, then I may just be the guy for you! I have experienced some bad things in my life, and now I need someone with patience, love and time to give to help me mend.

Thank you for reading my story. I am neutered and up to date on all my shots- oh microchipped too
