WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - Two-year-old Jay D, a Shih Tzu from the Washington Humane Society visited Petline 9 on Thursday. He is at their Georgia Avenue location ready to be adopted.

If you've never met a Shih Tzu, you're in for a treat. These lively little friends have distinctive 'double coats' that are flowing and airy. Their inquisitive natures, perky attitudes and gentle loving personalities combine to make Shih Tzus loyal companions who are just plain fun. The Shih Tzu, with his noble Chinese ancestry, is both playful and intelligent, and a pint-size but perfect addition to many homes. How about yours?
