LOL. No he didn't. I never knew about that. Are maltese generally known to do that???
no, shih tzus do that. and i'm not badmouthing shih tzus b/c theyre my favorite ever, and i had one for 16 years, and theyre totally sweet-tempered and adorable, but theyre infamous for it.
shih tzu report card: plays well with others. good snuggler. isn't yippy. looks cutest with short hair. easy to take care of. eats own poop. HTH
