NATHANIAL's Story...

MEET Miss Sarina....a petite, sweet, charcoal/white, 4-5 yr old, 10 lb Shih Tzu, who came to Lhasa Happy Homes via the San Bernardino Shelter with a broken pelvis. Our vet xrayed her and she was pretty jacked up....but with cage rest and lots of TLC, she will recover without surgery! Lucky girl! It never ceases to amaze me how these dogs, obviously used for breeding (because they are so adorable) are used and then kicked to the curb when they are no longer advantageous to the owners. Scared to death in the shelter...she has settled down and is a little love bug. These pictures don't do her any justice, as she is just a doll in pink ribbons! She loves toys, she gives sweet little kisses and loves to be with you. It's hard to tell her activity level at this point, because she needs to stay settled...but she is able to go for short walks without issue. It's actually hard to get her to stay put. Boy does she love her chewies!!! She is also a good little eater. Sarina likely would be good in any home, except one that would leave her alone all day. We also would not put her in a home with young children, as she was a little snippy when she was in the shelter...out of fear! She would be great as a pampered pooch who gets all the love and attention...or with a buddy canine. The most important thing in Sarina's life is love!! Do you have some extra unconditional love to give? Sarina is waiting. She will be available in February.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

NATHANIAL, 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.
