***we are no longer taking applications on this pet***
Pellam is a 1yr old, 17lb Shih Tzu mix who came to rescue because he was not the "look" that the farmer was looking for in a breeding male. Pellam is very shy with people and will need a home with no children that does have a secure physical fence. He would do best with an established small/medium female canine companion (required) to show him the ropes and teach him things like trust, love, play, etc. No male dogs please, he likes being big man on campus. He will need a family committed to helping socialize him and teach him how to do things like walk on leash, ask to potty outside, and seek attention from his humans. He can be very vocal and is not suited for attached dwelling type living.
