PUNKY's Story...

MEET PUNKY….and what a special boy he is. This little 10 lb, tan/white, 3-4 yr old Shih Tzu came to us from San Bernardino absolutely, positively, shut down. Cut to: a month later and he is a different dog! Still a little fearful of the elements, he is coming out of his shell little by little. There is no question to that he was neglected and ignored; worse yet, abused. It’s apparent that a kind human hand he had never felt :( He loves other dogs and cuddling up with his foster buddies. He used to hide — now he shows glee in greeting you! We’ve taught him to walk on a leash, go up and down stairs and venture out into the scary world, and he is getting the message that all humans are not bad. You can catch him smiling and now, even playing with a toy == where before the squeaker scared him; now they are his favorites! He really likes his belly rubs and petting time, and his special place on your bed!! Punky needs a home that will continue to make him feel safe and loved. No chaos, but quiet and continuous love. He needs to be spoiled to life!! Another small to medium dog in the home is a must, to help make him feel secure. We love dogs like Punky because we know that we will bring him back to life…and we love doing it. Do you want to continue our work? Nothing is more rewarding :)

Please do call us if you are coming to see a particular dog to make sure he/she will be at adoptions (we do not bring sick dogs to our adoption events). Please bring a copy of your application and pictures of your home and yard if we have not done a home check!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PUNKY, 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.
