Meet our Itsy Bitsy Miss Fabulous, Mirra Turner. She is a vivacious 8 year old liver-colored Shih Tzu who weighs 10 lbs. She is affectionate, plays with other small dogs in her foster home and from time to time, picks up a toy to play with. She is assertive and will stand up for herself if a dog gets in her space. Mirra is adventurous and enjoys exploring the yard or walking on a leash in a park or around town. She rides well in a car and looks forward to going bye bye every time her foster Mom picks up the car keys. Mirra is healthy and fully vetted to our white-glove standard - among the highest in the rescue arena - which includes: - spayed - comprehensive bloodwork (complete blood count, chemistry panel, T4) - heartworm test - tick panel - fecal test - up to date on core shots (rabies, DHPP) and bordetella - dental cleaning She has cataracts with moderate vision and is scheduled to see an veterinary ophthalmologist to assess her eyes. The ideal home for Mirra is an active and loving household where she will experience outings, car rides, and exercise outdoors regularly. A yard is preferred. She displays some anxiety and we would like a home where at least one guardian stays at home most of the time (retired, stay at home or work from home) so Mirra does not feel lonely. She can be an only dog or in a home with other small dogs. Families with children who are well-behaved around dogs are welcome to apply. Mirra is healthy and will need someone who is committed to providing specialist eye care annually as she has cataracts. If Mirra is your kind of girl and you would like to have her as your next BFF, please apply at www.lahpstr.com/apply. Her adoption donation is $500. All our dogs are fully vetted (see above). Our adoption policy is at: www.lahpstr.com/adoption-policy. We are looking for the best home for Mirra and do not adopt "first come, first serve". We do this for the benefit of our dogs. If you have any other questions related to her, please email us from our profile at lahpstr.petfinder.com. View full description »
