Harpo's Story...
Harpo is a wonderful 1.5year old, 11 lb little boy who was rescued from a high kill shelter. He has some hind end difficulties and walks with a wobble. The vet said it looks like an old injury -no surgery needed- Harpo is on steroids and responding well. It seems he was kept in a cage most of his life so he has no muscle tone in his hind end. He is building strength every day and walking much better! This dog absolutely LOVES children! Harpo is a sweet dog, loves everyone and is great with other dogs. This guy needs some TLC. Can you open your heart and home to this little guy? Please visit our website for an online adoption application at and to learn more about our adoption fairs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Harpo, a Encino 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 Encino, or seeking a Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Encino.

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