CALEB's Story...

THIS IS CALEB....sweet, petite and so yummy -- you could eat him!! This charcoal/white, 8 lb., 8 yr old tiny Shih Tzu is a dream. His name means devotion...and he is devoted! This little cherub was pulled from the North Central shelter for a pet store in Bel Air and they refused to take him, after approving him, because they thought he was "too old." Yes, he was too old to charge their price of $495 for him!!! But this little man is worth far more than his weight in gold. Caleb seems to be potty trained, he is a quiet, happy, prancing little guy who loves to go on walks....he loves to give kisses and there is no question that his tongue is a little too big for his mouth...he loves his toys and treats and just to be as close to you as he can be, without being "needy." Caleb is good with everyone....he does have a slight case of dry eye, so he will need drops for the rest of his life...but so far, his sight is AOK! When you throw a toy, he dives right to it! He is great with other dogs but could go to a home with or without another dog....and would even be okay for a couple of hours alone...just not all day long. Caleb would be ideal in a mature home or a home with older kids -- but he is not really a "kids" dog. He likes to lounge around, but he does love to play....and cuddle and kissing are his favorite past times. Any home that adopts Caleb will be a wonderful one...because he is a wonderful, special little man. He came to LHH with a case of kennel cough, so he won't be available until after June 5.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

CALEB, 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.
