MEET LITTLE MS. TRINKET!  This precious, diminutive, happy girl is  very special….and cuter than her pictures — hard to take good shots of black dogs!!  She is 5 lbs (came in at 4.5, should be 6) of black soft hair, about 2-3 yrs old and likely an Imperial Shih Tzu X, as best we can tell!  Her tail curls a little more each day!  When Trinket looks at you with those big, brown eyes…when she lays on your lap and puts her head on your chest and looks up at you…when she holds onto your arm when you are driving so she doesn’t fall off when you turn the wheel….she will bring tears of laughter and joy to your heart.  She is portable enough to go with you anywhere!  She is quiet, and though she is okay alone for a bit, she should never have to be!  She does need leash training because her favorite thing on a walk is to run around you in circles so she doesn’t miss a thing!  OH!  When Trinket eats?  Her head goes into the food bowl and doesn’t come up until she is finished!  We can’t think of anything negative about this baby girl except if you are not ready for a shadow, she is NOT for you!  We’re not sure what the best home for her would be aside from getting full time love.  She should probably have a companion dog to keep her company because nobody is home 24/7; she is too active for a senior home, but a family, another dog and kids over 8 yrs old would be great!  We ultimately want to make sure that Trinket gets oodles and oodles of attention however that appears.  No adoptions outside SoCal.  ****WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL JANUARY.

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
