hey I had a shih-tzu that the guys at work said was hanging around a few days. Hair was all matted and hanging in the eyes, it's a wonder the girl could see and she crossed over a very busy 3 lane highway to get to our place. I took her home, cleaned her up and cut her hair. I had several dogs at home and she wanted nothing to do with them. She'd go for their neck and wouldn't let go. I took a rolled up newspaper and hit her neck and head and pulled on her collar to get her off my dog.....gosh, that was frightening but I understood the gripping power of those jaws. My dogs were alright and I was careful to not let them mingle after that. One on one, she was a sweetie pie...she was a 1 dog only family dog.

It was clear that I couldn't keep her so after not getting a response from a Found Dog ad, I put the word out that I had a Shih Tzu available for a 1 dog family home. A woman called who had just recently had her little Shih Tzu put to sleep and I went over and checked things out and she got the dog.
