Benny's Story...
Hi! My name is Benny!

I am an approximately 1 to 2 year old ADORABLE white Shih Tzu Maltese mix guy!

I weigh approximately 11 lbs.

I was rescued by the Emerald City Team from a very high kill shelter where I was found as a stray, matted, neglected, etc but I don't remember any of that now!

I am a SWEET little guy with a FUNNY little personality!

I have a very loving and mellow disposition and get along great with everyone I meet!

I would make a great family doggie or forever friend for anyone lucky enough to have me!

I love all people, other doggies, even kitties too!

I am also a hypoallergenic breed for those concerned about allergies, etc.

Please consider giving me the loving and forever home I so deserve!

Love,

Benny :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encinitas 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 Encinitas 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/Maltese breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encinitas paves the way for another one to be saved.
