Additional info: Christy was an owner surrender to the shelter due to landlord issues. She is very friendly with people, and has lived both indoors and out. She was surrendered with Cinnamon. We think she may be Cinnamon's Mom. They are very bonded. They even walk side by side with their ribs touching. Christy is laid back unless she sees her daughter playing with toys; then she just has to join in. She may bark when visitors come to the home but she warms up quickly if there's a possibility of belly rubs. She does listen to some commands but she needs to work a little on obedience. She is crate trained, good on the leash and good with kids. She does bark at cats but we haven't seen her together with a cat yet. She is a goofy wiggle worm and she's very obedient and loves to please her person. Christy needs to lose some weight and has a docked tail. She is very sweet and loving and would make a wonderful companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Christy, a Encino Cocker Spaniel/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cocker Spaniel/Shih Tzu for sale in Encino, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel/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 Cocker Spaniel/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Cocker Spaniel/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
