We are not 100% sure but believe she is a Shih tzu / yorkie and approx 4 mos. Old. Why do I say "believe" because she is a rescue puppy!!

We have a 14 yr old Pom and was not looking for another puppy, but visited our local no-kill animal shelter with daughter..and dare I now know the rest of the story....or almost!

She was found wandering the street at approx. 8 wks by a couple of joggers who brought her to the shelter. Being a stray, legally she had to be held for 7 days to be claimed before she could be adopted. ....UNREAL. She was obviously taken care of because her tail was docked and dew claws removed. At 8 wks she weighed 2.75# and at 4 mos 4.75#.

She is such a cuddler and so smart! We will ALWAYS wonder just how she ended up on the street and that whomever had her didn't go looking for her. Their loss our gain! We lucked out with a healthy, happy, playful puppy that goes everywhere with us and everyone falls in love with "little bit", her nickname.
