Brooks Barker's Story...
Hi there, I’m glad to see you checking out my page! I’m Brooks Barker and it’s great to meet you. I’m looking for a new family to call my own! Could it be you?

Here’s my stats:
Possible Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Manly Man
Colors: Black and White
Age: 12 years young
Weight: About 17 pounds

Ideal Home: I’m laid back so a lot of homes will work. Just don’t leave me for too long and don’t rearrange the furniture very often. I REALLY like my peeps so cuddles throughout the day would be perfect.

Special Needs: I am blind and deaf
Now for the good stuff!-
Well, as you might expect for a 12 year old respectable gentleman, I’m a laid back pup. And I will say that I really appreciate a good nap on a lap! I like being held by my peeps. My foster mom says I am really sweet and gentle…oh gosh! I am a quiet guy but I will give you a little ‘woof-woof’ when I need to go outside, when it’s time to eat (oh yes, I know) or if I get hemmed into a corner and can’t find my way out. I get along with all the dogs in my foster home, boys and girls and the parrots rock too! I don’t see kids much but if they are older and understand that I can’t see or hear them, it might work. If you don’t have time to hang out with me, I’ll just take a little nap but I don’t want to be alone for too long!

I’m not really in to toys too much, unless it’s to use them for a pillow! I like to go out in the back yard and do a little sniffing around, just exploring with my nose. I like to ride in the car and I will take my naps in a crate. I am not on any medications and don’t have any current medical issues. My foster mom is giving me some joint supplements that seem to help my senior joints.
Brook’s foster mom says “Brooks LOVES beds and will move them across the room to find the perfect spot. And he ‘bed-hops’ from one to another-finding the one that is just right! Once when I heard him making a little noise, I thought he needed to go outside. But instead I found him in the kitchen and he was pawing at his bed trying to get it ‘just right.’

So, if you are looking for a quiet, laid back gentlemen to share your life and you enjoy a companion that likes to be close by, will you adopt me? To start the process of adopting me or one of the other pups by filling out the application found at

PS. I've had ALL my vetting, and oh boy, it was a lot. Here's what I had done:
Distemper/Parvo shots – TWICE. One shot doesn't cut it.
Bordetella shots - ALSO TWICE.
Spay/Neuter-of course.
A fecal exam so I don't have any bad worms. Treatment if I do.
A heartworm test. Treatment if I am positive for heart worms
BLOODWORK to make sure my liver and kidneys are working well, because you know, we doggies often have issues in the liver and kidneys.
A DENTAL exam AND cleaning if I needed it- yep, all my toofies are checked out.
See, that's a LOT. Ask your vet - that's a LOT.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brooks Barker, a Houston Lhasa Apso dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso for sale in Houston, or seeking a Lhasa Apso dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Lhasa Apso breeders who help with Lhasa Apso rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
