Cannoli is a 3-year-old Maltese-Shih Tzu mix who weighs 10lbs. He has a soft flowing coat that may be less shedding but not necessarily a dog for those who have allergies. Cannoli is mellow, more go with the flow kind of guy. He gets along with the dogs in his foster home. He was a rescue from the shelter where he was listed as a stray.

From his foster home:

"Cannoli is not necessarily a high energy dog. He could possibly be talked into going on a run if the reward was right. But trust us, he'd be negotiating...Now, a walk or two on the beach with BBQ on the fire pit at the end of the day, yep that's his idea of a good time. Cannoli likes everyone's met. Now he's not an 'in your face' kind of dog initially. Of course, our kids may have taught him all kinds of bad things. They're kind of famous for that...Cannolli is more like a referee when it comes to the dogs playing. He'll engage but he likes to stand on the sidelines and tell everyone what to do."

Cannoli is obviously a character so if you're hoping for a dog who has less of a personality you may need to pass on this guy. He has a bit too much of it. He hasn't proven to be a nuisance barker. He could easily go to work with Mom or Dad. He could live in an apartment or condo setting.

Cannoli currently lives with a dog savvy cat.

Cannoli is an option for a home that has dog experience but doesn't necessarily require recent. If there are children they need to be over the age of 6.
