ERICA's Story...

HERE'S ERICA....a 6 lb (10-12 lbs at maturity), pure black, 15 week old (DOB 7/11/2009) Shih Tzu mix puppy. By the look of her legs, she might even have some Pekingese in her! Whatever she is, it works! Her daddy is Benjamon and yes, she came from the same household who had two litters of puppies right after each other and the family could not afford to care for them. She, too, came with fleas, ticks, worms and was just beginning to sleep in the backyard with the rest of the pack. NO WAY! This little darling is the shyer of the two puppies...but she is still one girl with puppy power!! Kissy, loving, funny, playful...all the things you would want in a puppy! She is learing to go on wee wee pads and is very very smart! Like her namesake, Erica (from "All My Children") - she is a flirty little doll who loves to just be a girl! Erica MUST go to a home with another young, playful dog (maybe her sister, Liza?) as she is used to a pack and does not like being left alone....a common thread about all four of these kids (Vadar, Liza, Adidas, Benjamon and Erica). No out of state adoptions. She would be a wonderful addition to a family with children over 8 yrs old and another canine (or two) companions. She's a little social butterfly and a tease...she will work her way into your heart and never let go! Erica is a winner!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ERICA, a Los Angeles Shih Tzu/Pekingese puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Pekingese for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Pekingese puppy 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/Pekingese breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Pekingese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
