Hansel's Info...

I am already neutered and up to date with shots.

Hansel's Story...
When Hansel and Gretel were picked up as strays, they were both infested with fleas. Even though they received immediate care, they still have some hair loss and raw spots from digging and scratching at their skin. They have already been groomed, but it will take a while for their skin to improve and their hair to grow out. But, eventually, they will become even more beautiful than they already are.

Gretel appears to be a Shih Tzu mix whereas Hansel appears to be more of a Lhasa Apso mix. Hansel is about 2 years old and weighs approximately 15 pounds. Gretel is 2-3 years old and weighs about 10-12 pounds. These sweet little dogs have not had good care or good lives, but all that is behind them now. They love their little bed and love to sleep under a blanket.

Please note that Hansel and Gretel are a BONDED PAIR and must be adopted together. Please do not complete an application for just one. These two dogs would be lost without the other and need to be kept together. Please help Hansel and Gretel find the loving home they deserve.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sparta 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 Sparta 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/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sparta paves the way for another one to be saved.
