Gizmo is an interesting little guy. While shy with strangers he's certainly not with his foster mom and he adores her attention. He loves being rubbed by her even when upside down in her lap and lays there like butter. Watch this video to see what we mean:

10 lb Gizmo is well suited for apartment living given his small size. He's thought to be a terrier/Shih Tzu and at 3-years-old he's still young. He's very treat motivated so should be easy to train. Gizmo is quiet for the most part and is housebroken. Gizmo knows how to use a doggie door and is crate trained. He lives in a household with both large and small dogs but would be happier to have your affection all to himself rather than have to share with another dog.

Here are some other videos of Gizmo:

Gizmo is up-to-date on his vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered. Gizmo's adoption fee is $195 which helps pay for spay/neutering, medical treatment, and food and supplies for homeless dogs.
