Meet Disney - 23 Oct 2014

Disney,  a mixed shih-tzu breed, joined our family on 7 Oct. She's once a lost doggie. Found by a friend early in August, kept a while by another before we adopted her. Sure she has been through a lot, cos she looked forlorn and timid initially. We still don't know the color of her outer coat yet as it's still growing. The inner fur is white, and now we see patches of brown and gray coming out.

She's alert and responds to calls and other doggies too. The first few days she has already attracted quite a number of admirers. One of them even made its way inside the house, so bold!! Initially, she looked like a pregnant dog and walked in a funny way. I would faint if she's really pregnant. She's fitter now and could even squeeze herself out of the grille gate. We observe that she doesn't like the grass, doesn't go to anywhere  that's wet and does all her dirty business on dry concrete surface only. So likely she's an indoor pet before and a pampered one. At first she's fussy with food, but after all the running around in the compound and playing with the boys, she's always waiting for her food before meal time!

We hope this will work out and she'll be a great companion to the kids. After a few failed experiences dealing with more active, bigger dogs, we're happy with Disney. So far, she's very mild and has a soft barking sound. She's soooo quiet that hardly anyone knows we've a dog - so definitely not a guard dog quality. Shih tzu has low exercise requirement, that means, I don't have to nag my boys to walk the dog every day :) We still believe in adoption instead of buying from a pet shop. The timing for this adoption is perfect cos we are (at least I am), more prepared. Let's see.....
