JOSEE's Story...

MEET JOSEE....and she is as precious as they come. Josee is a tan/white, liver colored, 15 lb, 6 yr old Shih Tzu, who was the apple of her family's eye until their human baby became a toddler. For Josee, this was not a match made in heaven. While she has never bitten anyone, she did snap at the 14 month old, so unfortunately, Josee had to go This little angel is not good with toddlers, but is great with kids over 8 yrs old and wonderful with people. She is trained to go thru a doggie door (but no guarantees!) and she just loves everyone and everything! She is very loyal and bonds to you pretty quickly. She loves to go for walks, is great on the leash and in the car -- but a warning: she almost likes to drive! She is very smart and knows some commands, such as sit, stay, down and shake! Once she feels safe with you, she will give you very gentle little kisses to know how much she loves you! Also, hide your undies....they're Josee's favorite The ideal home for this little girl would be with a retired family who is looking for a second dog....or perhaps a home where she just gets a lot of love and there are older children or no children at all just to be on the safe side! We have never seen an angry move from this little girl, but some dogs are just not great with the little ones. Whomever adopts Josee will be getting a fantastic little being....she has stolen our hearts already!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

JOSEE, 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.
