THIS IS ARYA….for you “Game of Thrones” addicts…the Queen may be dead, Jon Snow may be at Nights Watch…but OUR little Arya certainly is a warrior.  This precious little 12 lb, cream colored, 4-5 yr old, Shih Tzu came into the San Jacinto Shelter so badly matted that the hair pulled away from her skin causing wounds.  Maggots developed and we can’t imagine the pain she was in.  Six weeks later, she has her spirit back, hair grows, she is strong as her namesake and she is a very happy and grateful little girl!

Arya is a very active, playful, curious and busy girl!  The horrible condition she came in the shelter thought she was 8 yrs old….but that wiggle butt she has is NOT 8 yrs old!  She wants to romp and play and take long walks and experience life that she has never experienced before.  To watch her play with toys shows the joy she now feels!  She is very affectionate and loving, once she settles down — and a belly rub will help her do that!  Her gentle little kisses are sublime.  With a bit of training, Arya will be a wonderful companion — and have the life she always should have had.  Do you think you might be the home for this angel with a crooked halo?


Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
