    How to stop chewing?!

    My mind immediately flashes to the 9 month old finding smelly puppy chews yummy. She is adorable and looks like an angel.

    That sounds lovely, Marlene! Enjoy your time at the beach, it's been years since I've been to the ocean!

    Road trip

    Haha the title of this thread shocked me. Road Trip! How did she know I made a road trip?!? I just made a 12 hour road trip yesterday. I am taking a trip - first time I've been out of town for a year and a half....since my husband died. I am going to spend a couple of weeks in Oregon, where we had a beach cottage for 18 years. Sold it the year before he passed. I rented a house up the hill from the beach - in the woods but every window looks out at the water. It's almost noon, the fog is clearing, the water is a deep blue and the sky is........sky blue :-) I slept with the win

    Hey Marlene ,it's Bristolle Noel and Dolly here, how are you , it's been a long time since we've been on here.
  7. Welcome to the forum! I think neutering very well may help, but it won't be an instantaneous change. It takes several weeks/a couple of months for their hormones to calm down after neutering. It also takes awhile for newly adopted dogs to feel comfortable in their new homes. How long have you had him? I'm just a wee bit concerned because most dogs are on their best behavior for the first few weeks after adoption. It's referred to as the honeymoon period. Usually it's three months, maybe even longer, before you start seeing a dog's true personality. In most cases that means they're on
  8. We just rescyed a Shi Tzu that is estimated to be 1-2 years old. He is not neutered. But will be very soon. His name is Chase. I have a Shi tzu mix 3 tears old Callie Belle, the sweestest mommy's girl. Chase will growl and jump at her all the time. He will not leave her alone. I think he is trying to play, but she gets tired of it. My 10.5 year old Pomeranian Coco, well heabdd Chase seem to really almost fight aggressively. Coco is a mess, he has bitten us numerous times. He is the Alpha always. But Chase, gives it as good as he gets it. Coco seems obsessed with Chase's testicles. Wants to b

    He doesn't look fancy....but he looks clean and you can see his icy blue eyes. This was after his neuter. Hope I get to see him after it grows out and he gets a fancy schmancy foofoo haircut :-)
  10. Many thanks for your replies. We love our little guy and goes everywhere with us. lots of kisses form him..ha!
  11. Thanks for all the valuable information. It has taken away a lot of our worries. We have a 7 year old Shih Tsu and he goes about 3 times a day and we thought he has a bladder problem. There is always plenty of water for him all day and his bowl is never empty. This explains why he doesn't have to go that often. Our Vet should have told us this in the first place instead of putting him on a special urinary SO diet.

    How sad to know he craves human attention.. I hope that he finds that special someone

    I seriously have doubt that he is 2ish.....in fact I think he may b a senior. The shelters are notorious for getting breeds and ages wrong. And he was not easy to examine and handle. He is a head taller than Shorty and longer. His fur is quite different - coarse where Shorty's is "cottony". He is desperate for affection yet very skittish. He was dumped in a night drop box at the shelter. Based on his behavior.....I have a feeling he was owned by a senior and loved. I have done some combing while he's on my lap which he doesn't mind - seems to enjoy. I dearly want to ba

    Poor baby, I too think he'll clean up quite nicely! Bill Fusaro had raised blues before. It's rare to have a blue eyes Tzu but it does happen. There are a few on a Facebook page and they don't seem to have issues... As for adoption, and age, some are quite relaxed at the age of 2. It really depends on the dog. Good luck with him, I really like your names choices. Frank would be my fav, maybe because I have a Bing? Keep us updated!

    His legs are kinda long and so is his nose but I'm looking forward to seeing how he looks post clean up. I am having all kinds of foolish emotions. I'm too old to adopt a 2 yr old........my widows life with just Shorty and me is uncomplicated. I have thought what I'd do if I lost Short Stuff and have imagined it would be to re-home a senior or just do hospice care for a sick or old pup. Last night I was seriously considering talking about adopting him but today I might consider fostering him if I'm asked. At this point he is very fearful and somewhat aggressive. I think I c

    I bet he's going to clean up very nicely! I doubt he's anywhere near purebred, so I don't know about the blue eyes? Don't lots of Aussies have blue eyes, and most w/o any deafness issues? Not that I think there's Aussie in him, just . . .I think dogs can have blue eyes w/o having underlying health issues. I think.

    He is lovely...you think you might adopt him ?

    Me again - just heard from the shelter. He DOES have blue eyes. Anyone know of heath problems associated with the gene that makes blue eyes? Wish our breeder was still around......... I get to name him if only temporary).........thinking Frankie (Blue Eyes Sinatra) or Newman (Paul).....maybe Moonstone (Moonie)

    Aha - https://www.everythingshihtzu.com/can-shih-tzu-have-blue-eyes.html#:~:text=Occasionally a Shih Tzu may have blue eyes%2C,Tzu dogs come in a variety of colors. And his nose is pinkish/liver.

    Going to pick up this little boy tomorrow. He's about 2 (guesstimate) and very frightened. This is just for a transport.......but oh my heart is talking to me. I think he has blue eyes? Could that be? Has anyone ever seen a Tzu with blue eyes. Sign of deafness in the breed?

  21. This is exactly what I'm dealing with as well. My beagle is potty trained and rings the bell to go potty outside but he ALWAYS pees in his beds. I have to crate him with no bedding or even soft toys or he'll pee. I can't find any real advice anywhere and it's frustrating because I feel sorry that he has to sleep in a bare crate.

    Age when potty trained

    Yogi was right around a year old before I felt he was fully trustworthy.

    Age when potty trained

    Piper was 10 months old. Bella was a little over a year old. It takes time for some. Forgot to add that my 13 week old Briley does great on pee pads.
  24. How old was your shihtzu when he/she was completely potty trained?
  25. 👋 Hello! We got a white shihtzu for Christmas. It is our first dog. She is absolutely adorable. I would love any tips for potty training, crate training, or anything else you would me to know. We used potty pads at first but got rid of it and take her outside (turf on deck, not grass yet) to potty. I think she was confusing rugs for the potty pads sometimes. She still has accidents but I hear that will be the case for a while. We put potty bells on the sliding door. She knows how to ring it to go out but doesn’t always pee or poop. Thank you!

    I don't have embedding set up as no one was using it. Not sure if there's a IG set up.. We do use a wysiwyg editor no preview I believe, but editing is available so you can edit if needed. I need to go back into the admin panel on my computer vs phone as it seems some things have changed since the last major update a few weeks ago, I actually had support play with the board as there were some major issues not allowing the upgrade...
