Cookie's Story...
You'd never know it when meeting me but I was rescued after being hit by a car. I was turned into the shelter and set to be euthanized because I was paralyzed. Miraculously when they were getting me ready to be put down I all of a sudden got up and started walking. Marc from the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation received a call, and instead of having me euthanized, he decided to give me a chance.

Amazingly, I have no major injuries. My back is a bit crooked but I get around great and feel just fine. I'm still weary around new people or situations but I know that when I find my forever home all of my uncertainties will vanish away. I walk and run like a normal dog. And it is for seen that I will have no life complications other then me trying to find a perfect home.

I am a small dog, and look like I am Shih Tzu Maltese. I am not picky eater like most dogs of my breed, and am very cuddly and open once I warm up to people. I have been at the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation for over 3 months already. I am fully ready to be adopted, and can be fostered to see how I fit into my new family. Please help me to find my forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cookie, a Studio City 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 Studio City, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Studio City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Studio City 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 Studio City 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 Studio City paves the way for another one to be saved.
