Sophia's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sophia's Story...
Meet Sophia. She is an extremely well behaved and sweet little girl who will make a great companion for someone. When she gets really excited about something (like meal time) she will stand up on her back paws and rub at her face with her front paws like she just can't contain her excitement, it is very endearing. She is a beautiful little girl who loves to show off her tricks.
Sophia recently had surgery to remove some large and painful bladder stones so she is on a special diet to ensure that the stones don't come back, and to keep her at the healthy body weight she has achieved. She is comfortable around cats and other dogs, but because she is on a strict diet it would have to be possible for food and litter boxes to be kept where she could not get to them. If you can provide these things for Sophia and you think she might be a good fit for your home you can come and meet her at our adoption centre.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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