PHINEAS's Story...
PLEASE READ THIS PROFILE AND THE REQUESTED CRITERIA BEFORE CALLING OR SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION. THANKS FOR YOUR ATTENTION AND CONSIDERATION

MEET PHINEAS....a 3-4 yr old, 12 lb, black and white, Shih Tzu, who came to LHH a total mess. One of four pulled from a hoarder's collection, Phineas was the biggest mess. His face was one big matted knot -- and he didn't much like getting it combed out. We thought, "ut oh." Phineas wants to be the boss, and he is one of those dogs who must be kept in line, but he is a very smart and grateful dog. Our feeling is he has not been treated well and he needs to learn to trust. He is not a biter, but he wants to discipline you and tell you he is the boss....he is NOT the boss! He is a bit more independent than his co-horts...but does love to be with you all the same. Phineas is very curious...and when he looks into your eyes, you see the gratitude. He is special and needs a special, understanding and mature home. A home without kids. He be best as an only dog -- in a home where she can get all your attention and love....also a home where he is not left alone all day is important. Training will be a must, as we don't believe he's ever had any....and a yard would be fantastic. Home sweet home for the holidays is his Christmas wish. Can you make it come true?? Our website is updated daily. Please do not apply for this dog unless your home fits the specified criteria. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, groomed, vet checked, dewormed, deflea'd and come with a leash, collar and ID tag! Thanks for thinking rescue and adoption!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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