Owen the Shih Tzu

Puppy Breed: Shih Tzu

Owen's mom says: I recently lost my 13-year-old Shih Tzu, Foofee, and my wonderful husband found Owen's litter of pups in Pennsylvania. Owen has already proven he's got a pistol personality. He has helped ease the profound grief over my Foofee. Owen learned to potty outside in only one day. I am astounded at his intelligence. His favorite sibling is Andy, my Sheltie. He loves to pull my pants hem and play tug-of-war with it while I'm trying to move around the house. He still cries at night and I get up once or twice to rock him and cuddle him. But when I put him back, the whimpering turns into a very indignant yapping, which totally cracks me up! I love my precious little Owen dearly and hope we will have many happy and healthy years together.
