EMERILL's Story...

MEET EMERILL....who will cook up a feast of love in your heart and you'll never be able to let him go! This absolutely adorable 7 yrs old, 12 lb (and very fluffy), tri colored, Shih Tzu was stuck in the Lancaster Shelter and each of the other EIGHT dogs in his kennel must have pee'd on him....because when we got him, he smelled like a urinal. PEEEE UUUUU. He was so matted around his ears, he scratched them bloody :(( His foster mom gave him a few baths and a blow dry and voila....he was a new dog! He's getting good food, good love and having a good time! Emerill is very laid back and happy, but was a bit unsure of his surroundings when he first arrived. He sometimes would wince when you first touch him. Now that he's been in his foster home for a while, he has turned into a different dog. He is smitten with his stuffed animals and toys and plays like a puppy. He still doesn't like your face in his face, so would not be a choice for kids. Someone was not nice to this precious little man. He does like to play with toys and is very calm and laid back. He is missing some teeth -- and we had one of his cracked canine's removed...but he does not act like a senior! Emerill's foster mom calls us every day to tell us, "I love this dog!!!!" You won't want this little guy to get away....he is precious! We believe he would be best suited in a mature home where "mom and dad" can dote on him and give him lots and lots of attention. His foster mom is in love....but can't keep him! He seems to be potty trained in his new home, but we never guarantee. Emerill knows the way to your heart....just give him a chance to show you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

EMERILL, 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.
