ELLA's Story...
ELLA MUST GO WITH ANOTHER DOG AND WILL ONLY BE PLACED IN THE LOCAL LOS ANGELES AREA. PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO ALTER THESE SPECIFICATIONS

THIS IS ELLA....and she is a very special girl who has been through a lot. A petite, 10 lb, tri-colored, 1 yr old Shih Tzu, Ella came to us with her boy toy, Fitzgerald. They both were sick coming out of the shelter, but Fitzy never got well... we lost him the day after Christmas, despite all efforts to save his life. Ella is a survivor -- and though she misses Fitzy's angel face, she is so adaptable and loving, she has fared well considering how humans would react to what she has been through :( Ella is playful, kissy, easy going, quiet...she loves the companionship of another dog and loves humans. SHE MUST GO TO A HOME WITH ANOTHER SMALL DOG who she can cuddle with -- her favorite thing to do. She will need some housetraining, but she does use pee pads (and sometimes misses :) This is a special dog. Please do not ask us to change any of her criteria for adoption. Thank you! Our website is updated daily. Please do not apply for this dog unless your home fits the specified criteria. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, groomed, vet checked, dewormed, deflea'd and come with a leash, collar and ID tag! Thanks for thinking rescue and adoption!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ELLA, a Los Angeles Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Los Angeles already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Los Angeles breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shih Tzu breeders who help with Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
