TEDI's Story...

MEET TEDI....a precious 14 lb, tri colored (mostly white), 2 yr old (DOB 8/29/2011), Lhasa Shih Tzu mix. Tedi wants nothing but to be in a home that is happy and capable of loving her, working with her behavior and caring for her the way she should be cared for. That was the intention of the family who "rescued" her from a backyard breeder and took her home. Unfortunately, she was an impulse decision, as the family had recently lost their father to suicide and Tedi was brought home to soothe a pain that could not be soothed. Sadly, the family recognized the time commitment and responsibility for having a dog is like having another child....and they have realized that they are not up to the task and Tedi was suffering. Tedi is at a time in her life where she needs training, patience, possibly another bigger (as Tedi can be a bit dominant) dog....and encouragement, which she has not gotten. So, LHH has taken her and she will get all of the above in her the forever home we will find her. Tedi is a lover, kisser, player....she loves toys and craves attention...which she has sorely lacked. SHE LOVES TO PLAY ALL DAY: She loves to be held, stroked and a lap is her favorite place to hang out, but she doesn't like to share it -- so she needs a low key individual or family who understands the breed. Already in her new foster home, she is potty trained (we do not guarantee in your house!) and is learning commands. Tedi will continue to grow into a wonderful companion with the attention and love all pups need! She does have a congenital issue where her sight at night is a bit challenged, but she sees just fine during the day!! She is awesome....but she will need to learn that you are the boss. Might Tedi be the one for you??!! Children not recommended as she can be a little over zealous. The ideal home for Tedi would be one where there is little chaos, little traffic and a patient parent who will take time with her. Be assured, Tedi is NOT an aggressive dog, she is just a little insecure and needs to feel safe.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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