Shanti Shanti Shanti ... the beautiful and fearless Shanti.  She is a little dog with an unmatched self-confidence and courage. 


She is truly a fun little gal, and we are sure she will make someone very, very happy.


We rescued Shanti a while back, along with her three tiny pups Hercules, Apollo and Zeus.  All the puppies found great homes and Shanti stayed with us.


Shanti is a real character and thinks she is a top guard dog.  She believes herself to be very intimidating and will bark at your fence, but she really is a gentle and affectionate little angel on the inside if you give her time to get used to you. 


Once you win her over, which usually only takes a moment, she is just adorable, sweet and very loyal.  She has the most endearing and cheeky smile that will make your heart melt, Shanti is so funny, especially when she has done something wrong. 

Shanti enjoys human affection, she enjoys being held and will give you gentle puppy kisses. She is blissful laying on her belly on the floor and absolutely loves to run and play in the yard.

Whoever adopts Shanti needs to understand that she is very fierce and alert and will protect your home. She will bark at any visitor you have.  However, depending on how much dog experience the visitors have, it will only take a moment for her to understand that they are a friend.  We are not sure how she would handle the milkman, but fortunately there is no such thing in Costa Rica.


Shanti gets along well with other dogs, regardless of their size or gender.  We don't think small children are a good match for her, as she needs to have steady people around her.   



She loves to go for walks and walks very well on a leash.
