MEET LUCA….whose owner describes this 10 lb, 4.5 yr old, liver tri-color Shih Tzu as the quintessential lap dog!  He was originally rescued from a puppymill at 7 weeks old.  His family is so sad to have to give him up, but they know he is not getting enough human time and they want them to have a better life.  Luca is all about his humans!  He is fine with other dogs…but he definitely wants to be the center of your world.  He will follow you around and you will never wonder where he is…just look down!  Or buried in a laundry basket covered with your clothes!  He may be a little guy, but he is full of personality!  Luca loves to run on the beach, fetch his toys for you and giving you lots and lots of kisses.   He loves his walks, his toys and his people!!  The ideal home for Luca would be one where his people are around to dote on him, either working from home or retired.  He would be okay with another really mellow dog as a companion.  He was traumatized by kids at one time, so he is not a fan.  Do you have spare time to love a little furball who will love you back 100x over?Might you have the right love and energy for a pup like Luca?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
