Species: Canine
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Male
Age: 3
Owner: Mark
City: Chula Vista, California
Snowball loves attention and acts like he's human! His favorite things to do are going for a ride in the car and playing fetch with a squeaky tennis ball. He loves to get your attention by taking a flying leap at the back of your knee. If your knee buckles and smacks something, he thinks that's the greatest! He loves wearing T-shirts and sweaters (no cotton!). He was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis and is on a desensitizing injection therapy. When it's time for his shot, he excitedly runs and hops on the piano bench and patiently waits. Afterward, he runs to the kitchen to receive a treat! He loves cats and playing "tag" is his favorite game.
