UPDATE: Kimchee was adopted as of October 9, 2012, Lhasa Happy Homes told TakePart.
Pet breed: Dog, Shih Tzu
Age: 4-5 years old
Where you can find Kimchee: Lhasa Happy Homes (contact the shelter for Kimchee’s foster home). 1158 26th St., #190, Santa Monica, CA 90403
You know you want to keep her: Kimchee, a smiling 11-pound Shih Tzu, is “absolutely precious,” according to Lhasa Happy Homes’ executive director Randee Goldman. She was left at the shelter because she has a bad eye, which is now healing fine with medication and treatment.
“This little lady LOVES toys … the squeakier, the better,” Goldman wrote on the site. A perfectly agreeable pup, Kimchee is friendly, curious and seems potty trained. She gets along well with everyone, and would prefer to have fellow dogs around or enough attention to not be left alone. She is currently in a foster home, so contact Lhasa Happy Homes for more information.
All of Lhasa’s dogs come spayed/neutered, microchipped, groomed and dewormed and checked out by a vet. If you’re looking for a small, happy pup with an entertaining name, Kimchee might be perfect for your home.
