Lexi's Story...
Lexi is a young lady about 2 years old. She is playful and a happy girl who loves to run circles around the trees in the back yard or wrestle with her BFF, Buffy. Lexi adores her humans and thinks her place is next to them on the couch if possible. However, she will find her place to the floor when directed. Lexi is fast and can slip out a door and under your feet before you blink. She was a stray at Animal Control and it is easy to see how she likely got ‘lost’! She will need a fenced in yard to keep her safe and to let her express some of her energy. Although she is tiny, she is no wallflower. In fact, she has a mighty big bark for a little dog. She thinks she is a watchdog so she will alert you when she hears noises and guards her yard from passers by. Lexi gets along with everyone including her dog friends. She will try to show her dominance if allowed to do so. Lexi is spayed, up to date with vaccinations, heartworm negative, had a recent dental and is microchipped. If you are interested in adopting her, please email us for an application. We work full time so if you do not hear from us immediately, don’t despair, we will get back with you as soon as we can.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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