Marvin's Info...

Marvin's Story...
This adorable dude is Marvin. He is a spunky happy guy for an 10 yr old Shih Tzu

We are looking for that special adopter who will love Marvin with his being mostly blind. He does have mild vision and can navigate anywhere he goes perfectly. He does require eye meds and we'd love an adopter who knows that a blind dog is just as happy and loving as a sited dog.

The great thing about Marvin is he actually knows what is going on all over his home. He walks up and down the stairs with no problem, he plays with his toys and wrestles with his foster siblings and he somehow knows when we are walking to the car and when I have food in my hand. He's quite the character.

He loves people and kids, going to the dog park and wandering around enjoying the grass and smells. He can walk around for hours. lol He will be a perfect dog for someone looking for a mellow dog who is easy and a lovebug.

Marvin's adoption fee includes:

-Current vaccines
-Eye meds for 6 mos.

If you are interested in meeting Marvin, please fill out our adoption application on our website and we will be in contact.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marvin, a Encino 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 Encino, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Encino.

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