Torres is the handsome, debonair guy in the group, with silky-soft, luxurious hair. This 3.5 month old Teddy Bear (Shih-Tzu/Bichon)  seems like the strong and silent type—but don’t let that mislead you.  Once he gets to know you, he turns in to a total lovebug and wants all the snuggles, all the time! 

Torres loves to run and play with all of the squeaky and crunchy toys.  He enjoys playing with his foster siblings, but would also be happy as a pampered only pup who is the light of his Hooman’s life.   He is very sweet and makes certain that his Hooman feels very loved.

He loves to play with the kiddos who visit his foster home.  He’s a very gentle pup who can be patient and reserved until he’s confident with his family.

He does well with the potty pads, but should have his mess cleaned up quickly so he isn’t tempted to get himself a yucky snack. His future family will need to make certain that the yard and potty pads get cleaned up quickly.  He’s just beginning to work on going potty outside, but with consistent work, he will have it mastered in no time.

KNOWN HISTORY – Mill broker surrender. These pups have lived their entire lives being nothing more than a number or merchandise. Their whole worlds changed the day they came into our program! They finally got to be members of a real family, and we can’t wait to watch them grow up in loving homes where they are part of YOUR family, too! 

Won’t you please consider adding this precious, sweet, loving, super happy little boy to your family? If you are not quite ready to add a new member to your family, won’t you please SHARE our adoptable kiddos to your social media? You never know when your share will be the share that brings them home. 💖

Torres’ adoption fee is $850. The adoption fee includes neuter, microchip with free lifetime registration, age appropriate vaccinations and dewormers. He will come home with a hobo bag of things to help him get started in his new furever home. You can apply to welcome this handsome lil’ devil into your family by completing an adoption application below.
