Shih Tzu Mix


Mocha is a very sweet, easy-going, gentle, quiet, handsome boy who LOVES to cuddle. He will get overheated when cuddling and will move to a cooler place. He knows his name and will wag his tail when called, but is not the kind of guy who comes running. He has been in his foster home for a fairly short time and is still unsure or still lacks the confidence to venture too far on his own when called.

He is able to go up stairs very well, but cautiously​,​ but cannot go down them yet safely, so he is still being carried down stairs until he learns this skill.

So far, he has done very well at urinating outside. He will not indicate the need to go so he is just carried outside every so often to eliminate. He does best when I sit outside with him and give him about 5 minutes to sniff around. He will usually always pee and poo if given the time and if he knows his person is there with him.

The only time he has barked, so far, is when he was outside and could not figure out how to get up onto the deck. He will let you know if he wants to come in if you are not right there with him.

Mocha is very indifferent with the other dogs in the house, who range from a quiet 14 pound Shih Tzu to an outgoing 65 pound lab/pointer.

Mocha has a favorite bed and location ​​he sleeps​ in​ when his foster mom is at work. He will actually stay there all the time if he is not encouraged to join the rest of the family. He may still be missing his original family who he was with all of his life.

Mocha has not been around cats in his foster home.

He will cuddle with anyone who picks him up and gives him some love. He is a serious cuddler who loves to nuzzle into your neck until he gets too warm. He loves to be touching his human.

He did very well with his bath and enjoys his breakfast and dinner and treats but is not a food driven dog. He is not possessive of food or toys.

He will make a wonderful little companion for many different types of households.
