Samantha's Story...
Meet Samantha! Samantha is a 5 year old Shih Tzu/ Lhasa Apso mix.
Here’s what her original owner says about her.
“Samantha is the sweetest thing but loves all the attention. Sam loves raw carrots, cucumbers and one of her favorites is bell peppers and for fruit apples with no peel, bananas and strawberries.

She sleeps really good in a kennel but she prefers to be curled up against your back. She loves to kiss you and careful if you are putting lotion on your legs cause her little tongue is uncontrollable.

Sam is great with everyone but she does jump. Due to where we live Sam was always on a leash. When you open the door and say firmly sit and stay she will but if not she will run out side. Sam loves to be outside or sit in a window and just watch everything. When you talk to her she will talk back.

Just an FYI when we woke up after potty she had what I called her donuts any kind of dog treat loved the all beef like jerky from Costco. Sam will shake with both paws and sit. Normally a cookie is her milk bone and Num Nums is food.

Sam loves anything soft as for toys balls are great and the chew bone in the picture. Watch her with any toy that has a squeaker she will dig it out. I would buy all her stuffed animals in the baby department at JC Penney's with out beans. Sam will find her favorite and loves to suck on the nose just like a pacifier. she would also sleep with her stuffy and hug it.

Sam does great in a sweater and jacket but not crazy about a rain coat.

Samantha loves to go bye byes in the car. While in the car if she gets a very high pitch bark she either needs to go potty or wants up front. I kept her in the back seat.”

Samantha's adoption fee is $250. She has been spayed, up to date on shots, microchipped and has seen the vet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Samantha, a Gig Harbor Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu for sale in Gig Harbor, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Gig Harbor.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gig Harbor 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 Gig Harbor 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 Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gig Harbor paves the way for another one to be saved.
