Tessa's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Tessa's Story...
Tessa is a 1-3 year old 12 lb dog that is blind and has hydrocephalus. Her medical condition is managed by medication and she has adjusted quite well to her blindness.
Tessa adores other small dogs and would do best in a home with adopters who are around most of the time and are able to care for a special needs dog. She does OK when she is left alone for brief periods, but she becomes nervous after a few hours. Tessa loves to play with toys and is very puppy-like.She take her cues from other dogs and would do best having a canine companion to show her the way.
Even with her medical limitations, Tessa is one of the happiest dogs we have ever met. She is full of joy, a delight to care for and eager to learn new things.
Tessa will be on medication for life and requires weekly acupuncture treatments so she would do best with an adopter who has the time and resources to provide plenty of TLC.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tessa, a Beverly Hills Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Beverly Hills, or seeking a Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Beverly Hills.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Beverly Hills 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 Beverly Hills 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 Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Beverly Hills paves the way for another one to be saved.
