Shaq was adopted in August 2008, and has recently come back into our care. Shaq is a happy little dog, who is good with both cats and dogs. Shaq's foster dad says the best way to describe him is "cuddle monkey" and describes him as adorable and full of love. He is happiest to have physical contact with his people, and at bedtime he longs to be snuggled up close to his humans. While Shaq is a bit older, it's very hard to tell! He dances and prances around like a young pup. He has lots of enegy to play in the yard and loves to go for walks too! Shaq likes to know who the boss is and is quite pleased to know who is in charge. He is very typical of his breed, and in rescue, we affectionately say these dogs have "lhasa-tude." Shaq is completely housebroken and is crate trained too. His only quirk has been his tendency to get into the garbage if it is accessible to him. Shaq's foster dad warns to be careful with folded laundry on the floor or in a basket, as it won't stay folded for long if he can get into it - especially towels! Shaq has excellent recall and is good both on and off leash. He listens well and is quite a happy little dog. Shaq loves people, but prefers the older variety and is not fond of children. This fellow would be best in a home with someone that is an experienced pet owner and does best with a confident handler. He has shown himself to be so loving and cuddly in his foster home, his foster parents have really enjoyed having him! He is a very cute dog who is full of love and committment. (Indoor Home Only!)

Please note: Funds for Furry Friends makes no guarantee that any mixed breed dog will be a low dander dog. If you have problems with allergies and require a low dander breed, there is NO guarantee that any dog crossed with a poofle, shih tzu, bichon frise, schnauzer or other low dander breed will get the true low dander coat. Different dander types can bother different people, and there is no such thing as a truly hypoallergenic dog.
