KOKO's Story...

Koko is an absolutely darling 5 year old Chocolate Poodle / Shih Tzu mix boy.

Koko was found by a concerned citizen as a stray. He was in pretty bad shape when he came to us ~ he was severely matted ... so much so that even his eyes were matted shut. The original finder as well as this rescue exhausted all means to find his owners, however they were never found nor did they choose to come forward.

What can we say about this awesome little dynamo? Weighing in at 12 pounds, this happy go lucky boy is extremely affectionate and wants to be with you all of the time. He will follow you everywhere and loves to sleep in the bed with you. Koko is house trained, walks well on a leash and enjoys rides in the car.

Koko is quite the talker and will tell you all about his life if you are willing to listen! His ideal home will be one with adults only or adults with older teens ... toddlers and little children will not be considered.

Koko is longer coated breed that will require weekly brushing as well as a professional grooming every 6 to 8 weeks.

Koko's adoption fee is $450.00. This fee includes his Veterinarian check-up, neuter, vaccinations including rabies and bordatella, de-worming, microchip and professional groom.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

KOKO, a Phoenix Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

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