Lonnie's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Lonnie's Story...
Lonnie is a 1 year old female Shih Tzu mix. She was rescued from a "home" that was more like a junk yard. Her owners moved away and took the other dogs, but left her behind. She was covered in matted fur, dirt, feces, etc. so she has been shaved, but when her hair grows back she will have the long luxurious hair a Shih Tzu should have. She is a really friendly and pretty small little girl that will make a lovely lap dog for someone.

**IMPORTANT: Mileage Limitation, No Shipping, Application Required. All dogs will be UTD on shots, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. Please Email For More Info: ALPHACanine@sbcglobal.net

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lonnie, a Bakersfield Shih Tzu puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Bakersfield, or seeking a Shih Tzu puppy from a breeder in Bakersfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
