Baby's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Baby's Story...
Baby is a very sweet, 21-pound, calm and quiet, eight-year-old, female Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso-mix looking for a very special dog-loving guardian.

Baby was brought to the vet by her family to be euthanized because she was suffering from ear and eye infections. Luckily the vet tech at the animal hospital, asked if she could take her home and treat her instead of euthanizing her.

Baby’s eye and ear infections are on the mend and she’s living happily in a loving foster home.

She is perfectly housebroken and good with people of all ages - including children. She follows her foster mom from room to room in her home. However, she will bite if someone tries to pick her up, or touch her paws. She is wonderful with cats and good with select dogs. She prefers small dogs to big fluffy dogs like Chows. Her best friends at her foster home are a Chihuahua and a cat.

She is looking for a home where someone is home more often than not. She would love to live with a retired person or someone who works from home. And, she is looking for someone who will have the patience to allow her the time to adjust to her new home.

Baby loves to go swimming at the lake, and loves her walks. She is now healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested negative. She does need eye drops daily to keep her comfortable and she may have occasional ear infections that her new guardian would need to watch for.

To meet and possibly adopt Baby, please contact Navelle at navelleegrosche@gmail.com or 773-849-4334. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued pets of FCACC.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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