LOX…. is 8 years old but has the playfulness of a puppy!  He is a 15 lbs, black and white, purebred Shih Tzu, who originally came from a breeder.  Yes, he is adorable — but there is more to a dog than just looks!  He was given up by his family because he was not good with their kids and a baby is on the way!

Lox is very affectionate, enjoys cuddling, nestling and a good tummy rub. He is a great dog who just needs parameters.  With little or no proper guidance in his previous life, Lox was allowed to guard his toys, bed, and “people.”  He didn’t know any better!  With the training he is receiving at LHH, his issues have minimized to almost zero… however, Rome wasn’t built in a day!  The protocol he has been getting must become part of his lifestyle.  It’s pretty simple; it just becomes the way you do things!

An ideal home for Lox would be a single, firm, assertive, dog savvy parent who will commit to following the training and be consistent in the home for the rest of his life.  We don’t recommend kids or other dogs.  He is generally fine with other dogs when you follow his training, but he wants all the attention for himself at home!  This simply eliminates any potential issues.  Lox is great in the car and potty trained, but may need adjustments at his new home.  Finally, he would love to have a backyard so that he can sun bathe and relax outside when the weather is nice!

Do you have the patience for a beautiful baby who just needs patience, parameters and love?? LHH’s trainer will be on hand to help guide Lox to success in your home, if you will give him a chance!  He is waiting for you. SoCAL adoptions only.  Now available.

(Lox only attends adoption events or can be seen by appointment)
