First time dog owner here!

Hello everyone. My name is Aubri and I am a first time dog owner. We adopted Loki on May 15, 2015 when he was 6 weeks old. He is now 9 weeks old and just had his second round of puppy shots.

He is a ShiChi (Shih Tzu Chihuahua mix) but he has the physical characteristics of a full short haired Chihuahua. He's light brown in color with black on his face and tail and white on his chin, paws and chest. I don't know much about dogs and their characteristics as puppies but Loki is pretty good in my opinion. He only barks when we are playing with him or when he is in his play pen playing with his toys. Doing really well with potty training, still a long way to go but for his age I think he is doing exceptionally well. He loves attention but when it comes time for bed he sleeps all night long in his crate by the bed and has no accidents.

He loves being held and is very calm while being held. His vet visits were amazing, he didn't make a sound when getting his shots and was very cooperative. He does like to bite our hands and feet while playing but we're working on that. I read that Shih Tzu's can get as big as 18 pounds but Loki is currently a little under 4 pounds and looks almost full grown. He has grown significantly within the past few weeks.

Anyways, if you have read this far I am glad I didn't bore you. I look forward to browsing the forums and reading your posts and hearing about your doggies.
