    Here is my story: Hi! My name is Madison and I am a mature, 12 years young, female, Shih Tzu. I weigh 9.5-10 lbs and I am Liver/Chocolate and White. I was surrendered to a shelter in rural NC when my own became too old and ill to care for me. I was surrendered with my housemate Domino. While we came in together we are not bonded, honestly I don't like him very much and I pick on him a lot. You see, if you are familiar with Shih Tzus you know that we females are royalty. The word Princess and Queen are thrown around a lot but lets not put labels on me. Here's what you need to know: I am super sweet and love to be with people. I am a semi-active and like to be in the yard with my foster family. I am house and crate trained. I am quiet. I am picky about my playmates. I like mature kids. I need a forever home to call my own for the rest of my life. So, what do you think? Is that you? If so,
