Winter's coming, and you need a dog! Trust me, much better to get it trained and acclimated to you and your home before the cold and snow comes.
We've had a run of larger dogs for a while, so this week's adoptable pet is a departure from that, just perfect for someone with a small apartment (or a large purse). Garrett is a 2-3-year old male, black and white Shih Tzu mix. As I write this, he's not yet neutered, but like all the pets adopted through the Countryside Humane Society, he will be by the time he's ready to go home with you.
Shih Tzu is/are -- the word is both plural and singular -- a breed originating in China. The name means "Lion Dog," and the Shih Tzu is the oldest and smallest of the Tibetan holy dog. Luckily for you, Garrett does not have the fancy-schmancy show coat that requires a lot of maintenance and a retinue of servants.
You can check out Garrett -- who's a sweet-natured guy recommended for all ages -- at Countryside, 2706 Chicory Road, or call (262) 554-6699.
Sad to say, Agnes, the lovely Abyssinian/brown tabby we had up for adoption last week, still hasn't found a home. If you're interested, check out our posting and call Countryside asap.
