Meet Larry, our 3-month-old, 4-pound Shih-Tzu, whose journey from a puppy mill to the lap of love is as heartwarming as his precious kisses are!

Larry is not just a pup; he’s a fluffy ambassador of joy who’s discovered the art of snuggling and turned it into a masterpiece. This tiny tot is all about those snuggles, and he’ll gladly let you carry him around like the royalty he is.

But Larry is more than just a cuddle connoisseur – he’s a kissing champion in the making! His kisses are so abundant and heartwarming that he’ll leave you wondering how on earth his tongue hasn’t fallen out yet!💋

This little guy might be small, but he’s got a heart as big as can be. Larry fearlessly instigates playtime with his foster brothers, holding his own in the big leagues. When the zoomies hit, get ready for a whirlwind of buttery-soft floof that’ll leave you in stitches!

Larry isn’t picky when it comes to friends – big or small, living or inanimate, he’ll approach anyone and anything with joyful enthusiasm, ready for playtime adventures. This pup is the definition of fearless, and he’s just really hoping that his forever home will have another friendly pooch for him to pal around with.

And let’s talk about those eyes – Larry’s gaze is enough to make anyone fall head over paws in love. But it’s his personality that truly seals the deal. Confident, fun, and snuggly, Larry is the whole package wrapped up in a teeny-tiny, floofy body.

When Larry isn’t busy charming everyone with his antics, he’s a smart little cookie. Potty pads? Mastered. Scheduled potty breaks and positive reinforcement? He’s on track to conquer outdoor potty time like a pro!

As much as Larry loves his adventures, he knows how to appreciate a good nap. And let’s be honest, watching this little fluff find obscure hiding spots for a snooze is an unintentional game of hide and seek you’ll happily play.

Food? Larry loves it, and the sound of a treat bag opening will have him sprinting towards you with sheer delight. Ya gotta meet him to believe him! He will absolutely steal your heart!

About this breed:

That face! Those big dark eyes looking up at you with that sweet expression! It’s no surprise that Shih Tzu owners have been so delighted with this little ‘Lion Dog’ for a thousand years. Where Shih Tzu go, giggles and mischief follow. Shih-Tzus, weighing between 9 to 16 pounds, and standing between 8 and 11 inches, are surprisingly solid for dogs their size. The coat, which comes in many colors, is worth the time you will put into it’ few dogs are as beautiful as a well-groomed Shih Tzu. Being cute is a way of life for this lively charmer. The Shih Tzu is known to be especially affectionate with children. Some dogs love to dig holes and chase cats, but a Shih Tzu’s idea of fun is sitting in your lap acting adorable as you try to watch TV.
