We originally adopted Nilla from our elderly neighbor. She had just purchased Nilla as an 8 week old puppy from a breeder a couple of months prior. She didn't realize the amount of work needed for a puppy, while also dealing with her husband's Alzheimer's, would be too much. At the time we were about to move onto our farm, and were talking about training a service dog for my daughter. We figured we would give Nilla a try. After teaching her basic manners and skills, she is a great companion and a wonderful Shih Tzu, but she unfortunately doesn't make the cut as a service dog. We have gone back and forth on keeping her as just a pet, but her one bad habit is her penchant for slipping through our fences and getting into our chickens. 

This said, as long as you do not have accessible chickens and have the time to spend with her, she would make a wonderful companion dog for most any age. I would highly recommend her for both children's companion or elderly; anyone who has the time to spend with her and is looking for a small dog that travels easily. 

She is spayed, groomed, and well loved. She has been trained to basic obedience and some canine good citizen standards, does excellent in public on outings, and was originally trained to puppy pads indoors. We no longer use puppy pads, but she is still familiar with them. She is just shy of one year old.  She has been well socialized with both dogs, cats, misc. pets, and people. She is used to going everywhere with us, as she was a service dog in training for a few months. We originally purchased her from our neighbor for $2500, which was the price they purchased her from the breeder at. We have put more than that into her with training and getting her spayed, so you will not have those extra costs. We are just asking to recoup some of our investment. Please let me know if you are interested, and we can meet in person to see whether she is a good fit for you and vice versa. If so, I have all of her vet records, her dry food [we do also make our own wet food that she gets, too.], her outfits, toys, and gear.   Willing to travel within reason to meet. We regularly go to Richmond, Va and the Williamsburg, VA area, are available to go to Raleigh, NC, and semi-regularly travel to West VA. I am willing to meet anywhere near those locations or along the routes.
