Additional info:
Nicky is a sweetheart to those he loves and trusts. He is completely adorable (he has a natural mohawk!) and very loyal. He loves hiking and going to the beach. This tiny guy gets along well with other dogs and walks well on the beach. He is also hypoallergenic so would be a great little companion for someone with allergies. He is being reluctantly returned to rescue by his owner who adores him but has to travel too much to keep a dog right now. Nicky does have a tendency to exhibit anxiety-induced aggression when he feels unsafe. He is timid around strangers and in new situations and may run and hide when he feels unsafe or act out aggressively. He does come out of his shell eventually but it may take a while. He is not comfortable around kids and has nipped in the past so best to avoid interaction with kids. He knows SIT and STAY and is super smart and minds well. He has been in a loving home for 3 years so he won't be thrilled about being in foster care. We'd like to find him a new forever home asap.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nicky, a Encino Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Encino, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
