CHERUB's Story...

THIS IS CHERUB....a little 13 lb (but petite), tan/cream, 4 yr old Shih Tzu angel, who came from the Baldwin Park Shelter. We got a call that this little Tzu had been attacked by a big dog, who was definitely out to kill her, and she was not in good shape. This little baby girl had huge puncture wounds in her, with drains and horrible infection. We immediately got her out of there and to the vet she went. After days of treatment, in and out of the hospital....we nursed her back to health and now she is all good. Cherub is a very loving girl. She is affectionate but not kissy (but she is a hugger!)....she will stand up on her hind legs to let you know she wants to be picked up....and she fits in well with "the pack" almost immediately! She needs a home where she gets a lot of attention, but she also has an independent side. She loves the companionship of other dogs...and you. She is still a little cautious on walks, after being attacked (it was probably on a walk). She seems to be potty trained, but no guarantees!! Cherub is an angel, and she deserves a heavenly that with you?

You can see this, and many more, adorable pups at this weekly event! Please do call us if you are coming to see a particular dog to make sure he/she will be at adoptions (we do not bring sick dogs to our adoption events). Please bring a copy of your application and pictures of your home and yard if we have not done a home check! Most importantly, if you have a dog, make sure you bring him or her to do a compatibility match with the dog you are interested in adopting!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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