THIS IS LARK….and she lights a spark in our hearts!  This 10 lb, golden/cream, 5-6 yr old, very active Shih Tzu pup came all the way to us from Chula Vista!  Somehow, she dislocated her hip and while that would cause us humans bad pain…she was running around like a puppy!  Even after surgery, she was very active!  You could not find a sweeter girl if you tried.  Lark loves to play with her toys, with her human, and before her surgery, other dogs!  She is very very very human oriented and will give you kisses until the cows come home!  She will not be available until November because we want to see her real personality come out.  Her foster has confirmed that Lark definitely wants another canine in the house!  Even with her in the process of recovery, she is trying to play with the other dogs!!  She is not a yappy dog, but when she barks, you can hear her in another county!  Little Lark bonds hard and fast.  You will never be lacking for a lap warmer, buddy while you work, sweetheart of a dog.  Please come back for updates as she gets stronger!  She is good with kids, all people and we don’t have any negatives to report as of yet!  She would not be good in a sedate, senior home — I can hardly keep up with her!  She is a LHH favorite!
