Ellie's Story...
NOTE: This is a courtesy posting for another rescuer. Please do not contact ARRF, as we do not know this pet personally. Be sure to contact the foster or organization directly from the information listed below.

Ellie is a 5-year old spayed, cream-colored blend of Pekinese, Shih Tzu, and Cocker Spaniel, and weighs about 19 lbs. She is a sweetheart cutie, who also has an independent disposition. She rides well in a car, and sat patiently in her handler's lap at a recent adoption event, and was friendly with adults and children who approached. She seems interested and friendly toward other dogs--wagging her tail all the while--though she also barked at them. Her attitude suggests that she would be great with other dogs when off leash. She appears to be housebroken.

Meet this pet at County of San Diego Department of Animal Services, 2481 Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad 92011. Open Tuesdays - Saturdays, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm. Closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays. For more information, go to http://www.sddac.com .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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