KARINA's Story...
PLEASE READ THIS PROFILE AND THE REQUESTED CRITERIA BEFORE CALLING OR SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION. THANKS FOR YOUR ATTENTION AND CONSIDERATION

THIS IS KARINA....another victim of being dumped in the shelter when her owner died, with no arrangements made for her. This tri-colored, 4 yr old, 14 lb., Lhasa Shih Tzu, has to be the most affectionate, loving dog ever. She loves to cuddle and hug you....and just about anyone she meets almost instantaneously! It is obvious that she was very devoted to her person, as she wants to be as close to you as she can get. On your lap, in your arms, snuggling up against you... she just wants to know that you are there. That being said, she can also be independent....but wants a companion. We learned that Karina had a liver shunt, which we have had surgically repaired, and it was a phenomenal success!! She is a happy, healthy girl again. See for yourself in this and the other video:

She won't require any maintenance except to eat a good diet. She will not be adopted until we know that she is out of the woods (which she is now!!) :) She seems to be potty trained, but no promises! Karina is an easygoing dog who would be perfect for someone who has never had a dog before....as long as you have time and affection to give. She is very playful and has good energy, loves squeaky toys ....loves to go for walks and meet and greet. She would be great with, and needs another adult dog as a companion...and she would be great to take to work with you or keep you company while you work at home. This is a turn-key lover! Healthy, happy and ready for her FURever home!! She is ready for adoption now!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

KARINA, a Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso 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/Lhasa Apso breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
