EMI's Story...

THIS IS EMI....before her makeover! This bouncy, 12.5 lbs, tri colored, Christmas Eve, Shih Tzu baby (will be 1 yr old on 12/24) is silly, funny, loveable and cute to boot! Unfortunately, the wrong home bought this little bundle of fluff and did not know how to properly care for her. In these pictures, you see a full coat...but she is matted to the bone underneath. She came to us without being spayed or chipped, but we took care of that! Emi's family decided to move back to Korea and needed to "get rid of her" by December 2. They were going to dump her in a shelter until we found out about her and agreed to take her. Emi has now learned how to walk on a leash, although she is still "practicing." She loves to drive in the car and is a great little companion. Her life experience has been rather sheltered, as she has lived in a pen and really not integrated into a household. We brought her here and she acclimated immediately! Emi is totally silly, she loves the grass and loves to play. She will be getting her makeover tomorrow and we're excited to see what's under all that coat! Emi is good with kids, so she could go to a home where there are kids over 5 yrs old. She will definitely want a canine companion...and she could use some training! She seems to be pee pad and potty trained, but we never guarantee! She is a sweetheart who deserves a full life of love and companionship....and cuddles and snuggles too.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

EMI, 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.
