INTRODUCING….Coco and Luna…a pair of very bonded purebred Shih Tzu.  Coco, the male, is sable with long eyelashes, 13 lbs, 3 yrs old; Luna, the female, is dark charcoal, 8 lbs, 3.5 yrs old and sweeter than chocolate candy.  The family were forced to give them up because they had two small children (under 3 yrs old) who were not gentle with these babies and the result was a nip.  As hard as it was for the family, he right decision was made to avoid issues with the kids or the dogs. 

COCO AND LUNA LOVE KIDS.   We would like to place them in a family with kids 6+ yrs old.  They would be perfect to attend (gentle) kids sports activities and any family gatherings.  They definitely want to be included!  They are wonderful with them and we know we are looking for perfection…is that you?  Please don’t apply if you don’t have kids.  They also want to be the only dogs, as they are very protective of each other and sometimes can be nippy with other dogs.  Read on…

Coco and Luna are attached at the hip!  They even sing together when you sing…”Luna, balloona”….they both chime in!  They were trained to go out in a yard vs. on a walk, although they have gotten with the program about 80%.  They do use pp pads, but we think they would be better off going to a home with a yard and continuing their training to go on a walk. They can also be vocal, NOT constant barkers but bark to alert.    They love the car, although Luna wants to get her driver’s license!  They can be protective on walks, Luna especially, and they may bark and want to meet everyone.  Sometimes snippy with dogs on the street.  They can be vocal when they hear strangers or doorbell or deliveries.  And, of course when they sing!   Coco likes to sleep on my head, Luna under the covers under my arm.    They will only go to the ideal home for them and will not be split up under any circumstances.  Do you have a place for these spectacular pups?  Local SoCal adoption only.  Yes, we are being selective, that was our promise to the family 🙂

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
