Figgy's Story...
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN MEETING ANY OF OUR DOGS, PLEASE VISIT WWW.LOVEBUGSRESCUE.ORG AND COMPLETE AN APPLICATION.

We spied this little cutie pie at the shelter, shaking in the back of her kennel and too afraid to come toward us. Once we had Figgy safely in a foster home, we found her to be a shy, sweet girl, who is just longing to trust someone and be loved.

Figgy is a 3 year old, 9 pound, Shih-Tzu mix who is sweet as can be. She may take a few minutes to warm up to new people but a pocket full of tasty treats sure helps when making friends. Figgy gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She tends to take a submissive roll, but is not fearful of other dogs. Figgy has not had much experience walking on leash so we are still working on building confidence when exploring the surroundings outside the comfort of her yard. She is on the thin side but is a great eater and we expect her to be a healthy 9.5-10 pounds very shortly. Figgy is used to sleeping in a crate in the bedroom with her human companions but would likely much rather sleep in bed with them. She is also potty trained in her foster home and should have an easy time acclimating to her new home.

Our adoption fee for Figgy is $300, and includes her spay, microchip, vaccines, professional grooming, treatment for fleas and worms, and best of all, lots of love and socialization in her foster home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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