Trinket's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Trinket's Story...
Trinket was impounded as a stray at a high kill shelter and no one ever came for her. We saved her and now she is safe. Trinket will need an experienced owner who is a strong pack leader, patient, consistent and will continue her training. She has some resource guarding issues with her food bowl and certain toys. She is receiving training and is showing much improvement. She is about 1 year old, 16 pounds and is friendly with people. She will sit on your lap for pets and she likes to cuddle. She is good with most dogs she knows and needs proper introduction and supervision to new dogs. She does best with calm dogs who are not dominant or a threat because she is a bit alpha with and is still learning social skills with dogs. So she may need to be an only dog or with someone who has experience with alpha dogs. Trinket is young and very energetic/high energy and will need someone who has the time to train and exercise her. She listens very well, is eager to please and is very responsive to training. She walks nicely on a leash and enjoys riding in the car. We will not adopt her in a home with young children. We will provide a 2 hour in-home training session with our professional trainer to whomever adopts her.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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