“We think she’s only around 3-4 yrs old and probably Yorkie x Shih Tzu type crossbreed - adorable she most definitely is, whatever her breed mix.

“She is a sensitive soul who’s a little shy and unsure, but is very very sweet. She isn’t happy around other dogs and doesn’t want to share her home/person with another dog…so she’ll need to be the only pet.

“Phoebe would love to find a quiet home, with a secure garden and with a family who can carefully build up her confidence at her own pace.”
