WonTon's Story...

MEET WONTON…. a 11-month old, 9 lb, Maltese/Shih Tzu, who is one of the cutest pups ever! He laid at the shelter with a broken leg, sadly his owner never came to his rescue. We heard about him, rushed him to the vet where he got his much needed surgery. Full of personality and enthusiastic charm, Wonton didn’t let that leg injury keep him down for a second! He has made a full recovery with a total clean bill of health and is now itching to find his forever home! Wonton is the epitome of affectionate, playful and loving! He is a funny, kissy puppy who will keep you laughing…esp when he meets you with a growl, a possible snip and then a kiss! Wonton wants nothing more than to be with you, playing and/or playing with another dog. He loves all his foster brothers and sisters – canines and felines as well! Wonton adores and is devoted to humans he knows. He can be a bit ‘grouchy’ when he first meets you, and may even try to bite you....but that melts away in 60 seconds. He thinks he is a guard dog!!! Playing is what makes him the happiest; he adores toys and will toss them in the air and retrieve them himself. He is a entertainment center all by himself….BUT he MUST have another dog/puppy to be his fulltime friend to romp and sleep with. His favorite sleeping spot is lodged between you and a furfriend in bed… and has even snored a time or two. Wonton is protective of his people and home. If he feels a stranger is in his territory he will bark to protect and may even snap -- but again, it almost goes away instantaneously. He is without fear, bold and quick to sound the alarm at suspicious noises both inside and outside of the house, but not to annoy. Wonton is totally housetrained (but we don’t like to guarantee) – if you show this ‘lil guy a leash and he will literally take the leash in his mouth and lead the way. He LOVES to go for walks. So a home where he will be walked/exercised is a must. If you have another young, small, playful dog….kids over 12 yrs old minimum…..a happy home you want to be even happier….what are you waiting for? Come adopt Wonton! See WonTon play!!!¤t=117_0249.flv

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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