NIKO's Story...

THIS IS absolutely precious, 11 lb, gray/white, 1 yr old ShihPoo... who is full of puppy energy and love. This wonderful little man was dumped in the North Central Shelter with a broken leg...but Niko took it all in stride. He didn't like being sequestered for six weeks while he was healing, so when he got out, he let everyone know that he has wonderful puppy power!! While he isn't a hyper dog, he can be very curious and busy, like most puppies! He has a very mellow side to him and loves attention. He's great with cats, dogs, kids (over 5 yrs old please) and everyone and everything. The only time we hear him bark is when he wants to go outside or to alert his humans if a stranger is approaching. He will also bark letting you know of his displeasure if you separate him from humans or dogs in the house!! He loves to play with toys, other dogs and tug of war is one of his favorite pasttimes. Another, active, young, small canine buddy MUST be in his furture...along with a yard for him to run around and exercise in...not to mention 2-3 walks a day. You'll thank us for this advice! Niko is a treasure and any family who adopts this babydoll will be bringing a fantastic "son" into their lives. Might that be with you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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