If you loved me, you would still want me after I was spayed.

Update: Rita was adopted on October 30th!

This precious Shih-Tzu puppy was found roaming the streets, lost and in danger of being struck by a vehicle.

Her previous owner failed to have her identified with a collar and a tag or a microchip ID.  A possible previous owner inquired about her, but once he realized we had her spayed he no longer showed interest in reclaiming her.

We named her Rita and, indeed, her spaying assures that she will not be exploited by a backyard breeder to make a quick buck off of her puppies.  Instead, we seek a loving, committed owner who will love her for who she is, not for her commercial value.

Rita is 9 months of age, compatible with other sweet dogs, and debuting for adoption today.  Please plan on regular professional grooming care for her and budget extra accordingly.  (We suggest at least quarterly groomings.)

As always, we want to take the opportunity to remind you to carefully puppy-proof your home and yard for her safety and protection.
