Hi, I adopted a shih tzu chihuahua mix from a shelter a couple of week ago when she was about 11 weeks old. She is 13 weeks old today.
My question is about my new little shedder and biter. She bites and mouths an awful lot. She doesn't listen. And she is shedding so much -- hair is everywhere.
1)What can I do besides chew toys and "no" to encourage her not to bite me?
2)How can I get her to listen? I've used soft voices, stern voice, clicker and she doesn't really listen well. Maybe it's just the age.
3)Shedding -- is this a shedding the puppy coat stage?? Or is this a forever thing?
4)How can I get her to stop crying when I walk away from her to use the bathroom? She will stop eating if I am not standing there watching her eat.
5)Do you think her ears will stand up?
6)How big do you think she will get? She is about 3.8lbs right now.
7)What does she look more like to you? Chi or Shi? To me her neck looks like Shi, her snout is a bit longer and eyes spaced out more like a chi... but the furry muzzle resembles a shi.
Anyway, I am totally in love with her... just need a few suggestions!
