WALRUS's Story...
You may meet and apply to adopt Walrus at our ADOPTION EVENT on SUNDAY, JUNE 12th from 12 Noon - 3:00 at PETCO in NEWPORT BEACH.

Walrus is a 4 year old Shih Tzu-Lhasa Apso mix. He is a sturdy, solid guy weighing in at 18 pounds. Walrus was named, of course, because of his very walrus-like appearance. Unfortunately, prior to his being dropped at the shelter, Walrus's beautiful long silky silver fur was shaved completely off leaving him practically bald with razor burns all over his body. He was also missing a toenail and part of one toe and looked somewhat mistreated overall. However, as it turns out Walrus is a very warm and friendly dog, quiet, easy to please, with very little demands. He seems content to just hang out and he is happiest when he can lay at your feet, gaze at you adoringly, and just enjoy togetherness. Walrus always appears as if he is thinking deep thoughts and we love his very intelligent, professor-like expressions. He is excellent with other dogs, children, cats, and essentially everyone he meets. He is very easy to have around the house and has good manners. He walks like a gentleman on leash and will hold his leash in his mouth, offering it to you, when it’s time to go for a walk. This is truly endearing and impossible to resist. We love Walrus and we know you will too.

Walrus’s adoption donation is $350. He has been NEUTERED, MICROCHIPPED, VACCINATED, DEWORMED, DEFLEAED and PROFESSIONALLY GROOMED. Also included is his collar with ID, harness, leash, folder with all of his records, a great PETCO coupon book, and a fun goodie bag with toys, etc.

Walrus is being fostered by Pet Match Rescue Foster Volunteer, Susan and is ready for his forever home.

You may meet and apply to adopt Walrus at our ADOPTION EVENT on SUNDAY, JUNE 12th from 12 Noon - 3:00 at PETCO in NEWPORT BEACH located at 1280 Bison Ave., Newport Beach, CA 92660. adoptpetmatch@gmail.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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