Meet Nantucket the Affectionate Shih Tzu mix

Looking for a foster home or foster to adopt. About 3 years old, 13 lbs. Male Shih Tzu mix. Scroll to bottom of this post for contact info.

Hi my name is Nantucket and I am a small 13 lb neutered male Shih Tzu mix. I was rescued from a local shelter. They said I was 7 years old but my foster mom thinks I am much younger.

I have great teeth and the energy level of a young dog. I have a soft black and white coat and was recently groomed. I don’t shed much. I walk well on the leash but do get excited when I see strange dogs. I can be stubborn with a “What’s in it for me attitude”. I need someone to take control and show me I am not the boss. I am crate trained and house trained. I sleep all night in my crate without barking.

I am affectionate and don’t like to share attention, so I need a home where I am the only dog and no children. I will need someone who will continue helping me with my socialization skills. I am on medication to help me with anxiety. I seem to be doing well and not as anxious. I just need a little TLC and soon I will be a great companion.

Special notes:

  • Nantucket needs a foster home with no other dogs and no children. He’s been evaluated by a behaviorist and needs one on one training. We can provide his behaviorist report to any inquiries.
  • Looking for foster at this time, but if foster wanted to adopt, we would waive the fee.

Care of Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue . Located in Staten Island.

Things to keep in mind: Adoption fee applies if you plan to adopt, unless otherwise stated (Foster caretakers must pay adoption fee if they choose to adopt). You may be required to complete a foster/adoption application prior to meeting the dog. Please check with your landlord about your building’s pet policy and of course talk to your roommates. Each dog on is the legal property of his/her rescue organization until an adoption contract is signed.
