Adopt a Pet Profile: Beau, Shih Tzu Cross / Maltese X

 Beau is a lovable boy who needs a family with plenty of time available to spend with him. He is a very social boy, who really enjoys being included in whatever is going on, rather than sitting alone. Beau has met several other dogs in the shelter, both large and small, and has been happy to say hello to them all. If you do already have another dog and you are thinking of adopting Beau, please bring your dog along to the shelter to meet Beau, so we can see how they interact.

Beau is a bit unsure around cats and would need to be introduced to them slowly and supervised around them. He does tend to get quite excited and chase pocket pets, so would be best in a home without them. Beau does require regular grooming to keep him looking, and feeling his best. This needs to include a brush every couple of days, a bath every 6-8 weeks, and clipping in the warmer months.

Beau loves his treats, and they can be used as rewards (in moderation) for his training. He does enjoy a walk, and will need to be taken for one every day. If you have children you will need to supervise them around Beau, and show them how to interact with him. He does tend to jump up when he gets excited, which means he may accidently knock little ones over or scratch them, so you will need to take the time to teach him settled behaviour around children.

To ensure Beau is kept safe and secure he will need a yard which has fences and gates that are in good condition with no gaps or footholes and are flush to the ground- colourbond would be best.
