MEET FRANCO....a favorite at Lhasa Happy Homes. He should be, since he is our longest patient! He came from the Orange County Shelter with bladder stones and a "not so good prognosis." Balony. No dog should ever be killed because he needs medical care. Despite the costs, it's the luck of the draw. Franco had 4 surgeries....and he is worth every penny! We learned that his bladder stones were developing because of a "liver shunt." He ended up having two bladder stone surgeries, liver scan, liver shunt surgery and a urethra redirect (he pees like a girl)! Through it all, he has been a trouper! He is now healthy, no fears of stones anymore and is happy and rambunctious! Loves to play, loves to cuddle (on top of you is his favorite position!), loves to sleep in, loves to run around, LOVES his human. He is fine alone a couple of hours a day if he has canine buddies to hang out and play with. He is on a medication (Proin) which he will take for the rest of his life. Other than this, he's a normal boy! He uses the doggie door and seems to be potty trained, loves to cuddle, kiss and be your best friend. What more could you ask for? He is a kissy, fantastic pup! We anticipate that Franco will not have any further problems, but he will need regular check ups to make sure he continues to thrive!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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