After my best friend's hubby died she found the empty house too empty. She began to talk about maybe getting a dog. I waited a few months and when she mentioned getting a dog again I told her a friend's shi-tzu had just the day before had a litter . No way did I want to push her into getting a pet she might regret. When the pups were about 4 weeks old she asked if we could pay a visit. She was completely smitten and had first pick. The dog, a female, is now 4 and has been the joy of her life. And she looks so like your pup.
