This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


Lita is a senior shih Tzu mix looking for a great home.  When she came to ARNO she was dirty and matted, but she quickly got a makeover and they are so glad to be able to see her happy face.  She will need regular grooming to keep her fur from getting tangled.

Lita is sweet, quiet and gentle.  She is about 11 years old.  Despite being deaf, Lita is attentive and alert.  She needs a home where she can live out her days like a princess.  She enjoys leisurely short walks and sitting on your lap.  She will follow you around all of the time.  She is a great companion and is very loving.  She is also working on potty training.  She is in foster care.

Email adopt@animalrescueneworleans.org for more information or visit this dog at the ARNO shelter, 271 Plauche Street, New Orleans, LA 70123 (Elmwood) 7 days a week 3PM to 7PM.  The adoption fee is $200, which includes spay/neuter, up to date on shots, and a chip.  Lita is heartworm negative.  She is available for our senior hospice program.  This means you pay for shots and regular care like monthly heartworm and flea preventative and ARNO provides any extraordinary care for life!
