Checkers is an awesome looking male brindle Shih Tzu. Just a year old, on July of this year, he weighs in at 11 pounds. In these photos he had just been groomed. Checkers was an owner surrender to a local animal shelter because his owner had too many animals. It’s a good thing he landed in the shelter too because he was a mess! He needed to be groomed badly. He feels much better now.
Checkers is housetrained but still does some marking – he is getting better. He initially comes across as a dominant dog but he really isn’t… just thinks he is. He is a loveable little guy who comes when called and is really easy to take out on potty breaks. He loves stuffed toys, wrestling with other dogs and getting petted.
Checkers is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment. Click here for adoption application
