Meet Ozzie

Shih Tzu, 13 years old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍷 Lives with adults only

My favourite thing about Ozzie is...

He has so much energy even though he is nearly 14 yrs old. He likes nothing more than to be chased, his walks and playing with his favourite toy Ratty.

The biggest challenge with Ozzie is...

He is very stubborn and if you want him to come in from the garden he will ignore you.

The most surprising thing about owning a Shih Tzu is...

Nothing really surprising, he just fitted into the family and is loved by everyone who meets him.

What I wish I’d known about Shih Tzus is...

Nothing really because I’d read up on them before getting him so I knew what to expect.

Did you know?

Some have a white spot on their head which is known as the “Star of Buddha”. The legend goes, Buddha was travelling with his Shih Tzu companion when robbers tried to attack him, but then the tiny dog transformed into a fearsome lion and chased the thieves away. Buddha kissed the dog upon the forehead in thanks, giving it a little white mark.
