Zinfandel's parents say: Zinfandel, known as Zinny, is an 11-week old shih tzu puppy living in Colorado Springs, Colorado. A ball of energy, Zinny likes to chew on anything and everything, including daddy's work, and he loves to frolic in the grass. His latest accomplishment is learning how to go up stairs all by himself. He sure does keep us busy, but every minute is worth seeing the cute little face looking up at us. He has captured the heart of his entire family, including his grandparents in Michigan.
