Pet of the Week: Shiatzi

Puppy love is all well and good.

But 9-year-old Shiatzi’s mature and mellow ways have their own attraction. (Almost said “mature, mellow and dignified,” but you’re looking right at the photo!)

This spayed pit bull has lived many lives. Animal Services picked her up as a stray in rural North County. Her microchip identified an owner, but when contacted, the woman said Shiatzi had disappeared two years earlier. The woman owned four dogs now and couldn’t take Shiatzi back.

But it’s never too late to love again, and Shiatzi is searching for her forever home. She’s the laid back type, knows basic commands, and she’s been good with other dogs at the shelter.

You can meet Shiatzi at the County Animal Services shelter in Carlsbad, 2481 Palomar Airport Road. Please bring her ID number, A1452202, for reference. Her adoption fee is $35—the fee for the County’s senior dogs. For more information and shelter hours visit the Department of Animal Services online.
