Posie, an Amazing Three-year-old Shih Tzu

This is Posie my amazing 3-year-old Shih Tzu. She is my everything. We first got Posie for my son, and at first I had no real bond with her, I fed and walked her but that was about it.

We had her for three months when I had a miscarriage, and I fell into a deep depression and felt so lost and alone. I wasn’t alone though as Posie never left my side not once for weeks, and she truly helped me get through my loss.

She was just under five months when that happened, but she was so full of love and affection. She is now nearly four years old.

She has helped me so much these past few years, she understands when I’m anxious, and she comes to my side. She is always here for me and can’t bear to see me upset.

She is very protective over me and my two sons.
When my eldest son was four years old, he fell face down in the water at the beach and Posie ran to him immediately and grabbed his jacket with her teeth and tried to save him.

When I was pregnant with my youngest son she alerted me in the middle of the night that something wasn’t right, she woke me up at 4 in the morning and was licking my face continuously and when I stood up, my waters broke.

When I got to the hospital, they told me my son was in distress. She is indeed a gift from God, and I don't know what I'd do without her if anything happened to her I honestly don’t know how I’d cope.

I just wanted to share my story about my amazing girl 😍

Hi, Janice Here from Miracle Shih Tzu

What a beautiful story and a truly amazing dog. I have always said that I think this breed has a sixth sense about them to where they can sense and react to our emotions.

Your Posie certainly has this gift but it is so remarkable that she showed such empathy at such a young age (3 months old)

Thank you so much for sharing. I hope others will read your story and comment also.
