Ajax's Story...
This sweet dog was so scared at the shelter he was considered unadoptable and was set to be euthanized. Once we walked him outside he just seemed to know that he was safe and slowly he came around. The first few days, he just sat on the floor and shook, but he suddenly decided that he was not going to be harmed and he liked where he was! He now comes and jumps up for some petting and attention, he gets along great with the other dogs, but has not started playing with them yet. He prefers to hang out on his doggie bed. He is fairly well house trained but not perfect. He is doing so much better on a leash, he is still somewhat timid so he would do better in a home with older children and someone that has some patience to work with him when he first arrives in his new home. He is approx 2 yrs old and weighs 27 lbs, he looks like a lhasa apso mix but his legs are longer so he may be mixed with poodle. He is very sweet, he has no aggression, no food aggression and loves to eat.. We had to totally shave him down as he was so matted, but his coat is growing back beautifully. He tested NEGATIVE for heartworm, and is on a monthly preventative.If you live in MA, there are new requirements for rescue dogs - according to the State Law, all rescues have to be quarantined for 48 hrs at the Ben Elder Kennels in Westport, MA. There is additional cost for this quarantine and new required health cert by a licensed MA vet of $110. We will go over all fees with you via email. Also, The state of MA does not allow adoptions of dogs that are heart worm positive. We are required to do a foster to adopt until the dog tests heart worm negative, usually in 4-6 months after treatment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ajax, a Woonsocket Lhasa Apso/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Woonsocket, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Woonsocket.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket 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/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Woonsocket paves the way for another one to be saved.
