MEET SHANTI....which means, "peace, health, wellness." That describes Shanti perfectly. This petite little 8-10 lb, white/gray, 4-5 yr old Shih Tzu /Maltese mix sat at the Hesperia Shelter continuously overlooked. Why, we have no idea. She is an angel. She loves to cuddle and kiss, probably good with cats but no guarantee....and she is a character if we ever met one! Shanti loves to play with her human -- and even by herself! She will wiggle her little butt and let you know how much fun she is to be with!! The only time we have heard her bark is when you first leave (she'd rather go with you) but she settles down quickly. She can be an only dog if she is not left alone all day (more than 3 hrs). She has demonstrated some food aggression -- which she can be trained out of -- but for that reason, we don't think she should go to a home with kids. Shanti will give you gentle little kisses when she knows you and let you know how much she appreciates having a warm bed, good food and a happy life. Can you give her one? She would not be good in a senior home as she is continually under foot. :(

UPDATE!!!! Lhasa Happy Homes will be now holding our adoption events most every Sunday at ROVER KENNELS on Main Street in Santa Monica (check calendar link below for special events and directions). Rover is located at 2116 Main Street, in Santa Monica, CA. Here you will have an opportunity to interact with the dogs and see which might be a perfect fit with your household. Main Street is famous for its innovative shops and is close to the beach! Make a day of it!! Metered parking on the street and free parking on 4th and Bicknell Streets.
Here you will have an opportunity to interact with the dogs and see which might be a perfect fit with your household....and do some fantastic shopping at the same time! 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! Most importantly, if you have a dog, make sure you bring him or her to do a compatibility match with the dog you are interested in adopting!
Don't forget to check out our Events Calendar for more information on upcoming events!
