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

THIS IS ELIZA....and her story is a sad one. This adorable, gold/white, 11 lb, 7-8 yr old Shih Tzu was dumped in the shelter by her owner because they didn't have time for her....or her friend. Her friend was 7 months old and was adopted, leaving Eliza behind. They only had her for a year, but they left her in the backyard, and they never took the time to train her...it was easier to keep her outside. Once she is settled, she seems to know where to go...but she needs a patient home to love her and make her feel secure. We're sure she ate rocks and who knows what else, because while her teeth didn't have a lot of tarter, several are missing. When she looks at you with those big brown eyes....you just see that she had been thru a lot. Eliza's favorite thing to do is be with you....even though she can be independent at first, she will snuggle up or be with you wherever you are. She is not at all aggressive and is just a little confused right now with all the changes in her life. Our biggest wish is for her to go to a home that will love her and give her the attention she probably has never had and will need time to understand!! A mature home would be wonderful and she could go to a home with or without another dog. She would be fine with grandchildren and she will be a wonderful companion once she feels secure and loved.

Our website is updated daily. Please do not apply for this dog unless your home fits the specified criteria. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, groomed, vet checked, dewormed, deflea'd and come with a leash, collar and ID tag!

If you are interested in adopting a pup from Lhasa Happy Homes, please complete the Adoption Application before calling. We want to give you the time you deserve, so please help us help you!! We will contact you once it has been reviewed.

Most every Sunday, unless we are doing a special event, we are at Century City Mall (10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles 90067 behind the Concierge Booth near Brooks Bros) from 12-4pm. 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

ELIZA, 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.
