Hello!! My name is Josephine and I am a 10 year old Japanese Chin Mix little lady. I am 11 pounds of love!!! I am very outgoing and just love to be in the midst of everything. My foster Mom calls me Josie and I like it!! I had an accident before I can to Lone Star and the right side of my face was hurt. My jaw was broken and my right eye is scarred and smaller than my left eye. I am also blind in that eye, but that does not stop me from knowing exactly what is going on around me!! I also don’t have very many teeth and Mom has to brush what teeth I have left several times a week. Can you see how my tongue sticks out? Mom says that is quite cute!!!!

I am house trained and Mom is quite proud of me! When she tells me to “go potty” I do exactly what she says and then I kick my legs and run right up to Mom for praise. She tells me I’m a good girl and I just wag, wag, wag, my tail.

Besides brushing my teeth, Mom gives me eye drops. I am a good girl when I get my drops and also for my teeth brushing. Mom then gives me treats and again tells me how special I am. I love to be loved and will sit on Mom’s lap. I have some stuffed toys that I like and I make sure I take one with me to bed at night.

Mom calls me a feisty, funny little dog and she loves that I make her laugh. I may be feisty but I am also very loving. I enjoy my special time with Mom and Dad, but I will also sleep in my own little bed when they are not available. I would so love to find my very own forever home with my very own forever family.

I’ve got my own Petfinder page where you can learn more about me. You can apply to adopt me at www.shihtzu-rescue.com. I am altered, up to date on all shots and heartworm negative.
