Monty's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Monty's Story...
Monty is our charming senior and slight “Special Needs” dog who anyone would be lucky to have in their home. He is a 10 lb, 12-13 yr old Shih Tzu terrier mix. He was rescued from a high kill city shelter where he sat for almost 2 months looking like an old mop. When we took him into our group, he was in such poor condition, desperately needed dental work, a vet-check along with seeing a good "hairdresser."

From the vet check-up we did learn that his kidney levels were high and he has a medium grade heart murmur. He was put on medication right away and a special diet for his kidneys. Since the dental work-up, being on his diet and a hairdo makeover, he is like a new dog!! It's amazing what love, care, good quality food, along with a grooming can do. He now interacts with life, has spurts of running around in a playful manner, adores going for walks and has a great appetite.

He has a new vigor, zest and love of life. His Foster Mom reports that he is not a barker. When he is not having a walk or a run around the house, he is content to curl up on his dog bed. Won't you open up your home and your heart to this sweet senior?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Monty, a Studio City Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Studio City, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Studio City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Studio City 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 Studio City 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Studio City paves the way for another one to be saved.
