THIS IS CAPRI….and having her as a house guest is like being on vacation!  This petite, 9 lb, coal black and white, 5 yr old, Shih Tzu was dumped in the desert and left to die.  She was matted to the bone, unspayed, no identification; just abandoned.  A rescue angel found her, called us and we agreed to take her. Capri is very submissive, very loving, healthy and a joy.  We cannot promise she is potty trained, but she does use pp pads at her foster home.  She doesn’t like being left alone, but she does not have separation anxiety — she just loves being with you. The best home for her will be one where she is doted on, kids over 8 yrs old would be good, as she is a good combination of playfulness and calm.  She is having a blast playing with her foster brother, Brando, so she should have a playful mate in her life!  One thing, if you don’t like kisses, you won’t like this cuddle bug!  When she looks into your eyes…you know she is so appreciative of your love and attention. Capri is a wonderful dog and she is waiting for that wonderful home.  She would probably even be okay with a cat — but we can’t guarantee.  Are you ready for a vacation to Capri?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
