TIKA's Story...

LITTLE MISS TIKA...came into the shelter (called "Scully") with an injury to her eye that was never treated. Unfortunately, it had to be removed as it could not be saved. But this petite, 1.5 yr old, 10.5 lb, gray and white Shih Tzu mix (maybe with Maltese) does not mind at all! At first, she was a bit timid of the outside world... and she still has her moments when she hears loud noises, sees runners on the street approaching or unfamiliar dogs. But, it only lasts seconds now! While her hair had to be shaved to do the eye surgery -- remember HAIR GROWS BACK and this little girl is going to be a looker! She has the most adorable personality ever! She loves to fetch! She has a favorite ball with strings attached that she loves to have you throw for her! She never misses! She is very soft, very cuddly and just so very adorable! She is quiet and kissy and really a dollbaby. She even seems to be potty trained, but no guarantees. Actually, we think she has a favorite bath matt she loves to hide it on!! Tika just wants to be loved and cared for as it is likely that she has never had an abundance of anything. When her hair grows back, you won't even notice her eye is missing. Don't let that dissade you or you will be missing out on a fantastic little girl.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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