Vincent loves to cuddle!

Shih Tzu/Lhasa

Vincent is an ADORABLE little boy looking for a new home. His family dumped him at a high kill shelter because he had a skin infection He barely made it out alive. Thanks to a good samaritan, Vincent has a chance at a wonderful new life. With a little TLC and good nutrition, Vincent's skin cleared up and he is doing great! This wonderful dog is good with other dogs, walks nicely on a leash and is the ultimate cuddler! He has a very cute personality and is very entertaining. Vincent has early cataracts, but gets along just fine. Dogs primarily use their sense of smell, so this isn't a problem. Vincent has a lot of love to give, and is a perfect gentleman! He doesn't have any bad habits or baggage. Vincent is an easy dog for just about any family. Vincent loves to play and is super loving! Vincent needs someone who realizes that not everyone can be perfect! He is house trained, weighs about 12 lbs and is 9 yrs old. Vincent is otherwise healthy, fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. If you'd like to meet Vincent, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area.

Foster Homes Needed

So many dogs are finding their way into shelters. Sadly, due to overcrowding, many never make it out. We can only save as many dogs as we have available foster homes. Can you save a dog's life by giving it a warm, loving home for a few days or weeks? We pay all of the dog's expenses. Your kindness will be repaid with lots of love and affection! As a foster parent, you will NOT be required to bring the dog to weekly adoption events. We want fostering to be easy and rewarding! Every new foster home is a dog's life saved!
