Bucky is a very comical boy with a big personality! Bucky came to us from a Texas shelter. He was never claimed so we scooped him right up. And we are so glad that we did!!
This guy is just great! He loves toys (especially if they squeak!), playing tug o’ war with his person or other dog. He is very social with other dogs and “arfs” at them if they play too rough with each other. Just call him the fun police. Bucky does good on leash and does not react to dogs passing by.
Bucky is a typical shih-tzu in that he can be a little bossy and he likes getting his own way.
He has not met a dog that he doesn’t like, but when it comes to his bones/chews, there is NO sharing with other dogs or people. So no young kids for this guy due to his guarding. Bucky does not mind sharing his toys.
Bucky enjoys sitting in the chair beside you but prefers the arm of the chair or lying beside you rather than in your lap. He is also a great errand companion as he enjoys his car rides.
This boy is both crate trained and housetrained. However, crating sometimes is on his own terms.
If you reach in his crate to get him out and he is not yet ready to come out, he can be nippy. But if he comes out on his own, he is perfect. He has been pretty much fine left loose in the house, but make sure you cover the bathroom trash!
Bucky is fine with cats (as you can see by his photo with a little kitten).
Bucky’s adopter will be required to enroll him in training classes.
