Update: Christy was adopted on February 22nd!
Radiant and infinitely lovable, Christy is a young girl who enjoys cuddling and belly rubs.
She is a Shih-Tzu, spayed, about 2 years of age, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.
While Christy shines with most people, she has a mixed record with other dogs. She reportedly has food aggression with other dogs and may sometimes be territorial with certain toys or rooms.
This behavior can be diminished, but there are no instant fixes. Instead, a steady lifestyle routine in an experienced, adult-only home will begin to help, and she may need assistance from a trainer or behaviorist too.
Please plan on regular grooming care for Christy. She is reportedly crate-trained and partially housetrained (but has occasional accidents if not let outside often enough).
Most of all, Christy needs a very committed owner. She has lost two homes recently -- the first due to home foreclosure, the second due to fighting with another dog. So please only consider her if you are the type of person who will exhaust each and every reasonable option to help her overcome any challenges.
