MEET SHANTI....which means, "peace, health, wellness." That describes Shanti perfectly. This petite little 8 lb, white/gray, 3-4 yr old Shih Tzu mix sat at the Hesperia Shelter continuously overlooked. Why, we have no idea. She is an angel. She loves to cuddle and kiss, she is great with other dogs, probably good with cats but no guarantee....and she is a character if we ever met one! Shanti loves to play with her human -- and even by herself! She will wiggle her little butt and let you know how much fun she is to be with!! The only time we have heard her bark is when you first leave (she'd rather go with you) but she settles down quickly and is better with a canine companion. She has demonstrated some food aggression -- which she can be trained out of -- but for that reason, we don't think she should go to a home with kids. Shanti will give you gentle little kisses when she knows you and let you know how much she appreciates having a warm bed, good food and a happy life. Can you give her one? She would not be good in a senior home as she is continually under foot. :(

Our website is updated daily. Please do not apply for this dog unless your home fits the specified criteria. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, groomed, vet checked, dewormed, deflea'd and come with a leash, collar and ID

If you are interested in adopting a pup from Lhasa Happy Homes, please complete the Adoption Application before calling. We will contact you once it has been reviewed.

UPDATE!!!! Lhasa Happy Homes will be now holding our adoption events most every Sunday at ROVER KENNELS on Main Street in Santa Monica (check calendar link below for special events and directions). Rover is located at 2116 Main Street, in Santa Monica, CA. Here you will have an opportunity to interact with the dogs and see which might be a perfect fit with your household. Main Street is famous for its innovative shops and is close to the beach! Make a day of it!! Metered parking on the street and free parking on 4th and Bicknell Streets.

Here you will have an opportunity to interact with the dogs and see which might be a perfect fit with your household....and do some fantastic shopping at the same time! Please do call us if you are coming to see a particular dog to make sure he/she will be at adoptions (we do not bring sick dogs to our adoption events). Please bring a copy of your application and pictures of your home and yard if we have not done a home check! Most importantly, if you have a dog, make sure you bring him or her to do a compatibility match with the dog you are interested in adopting!

Don't forget to check out our Events Calendar for more information on upcoming events!

See our home page for more details about our adoptions at Lhasa Happy Homes

Thanks for thinking rescue and adoption and for considering saving a life. It will be the best gift you ever give yourself or your family.

About Lhasa Happy Homes Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lhasa Happy Homes is a private rescue and foster care organization, created for the safe haven and permanent placement of homeless pups, primarily Lhasa Apsos, Shih Tzus, Maltese, Pomeranians and other small mixed breeds. Each of the dogs who come to Lhasa Happy Homes is cared for in a home-like environment, with an abundance of love, attention and special care. These dogs have been through a lot...and it is our objective to make them feel secure, safe and protected... so that when they are placed in their forever homes, they will stay there!

We are NOT a shelter. We rescue from the Los Angeles city and county shelters, and Orange County shelter. We accept Lhasa Apso, Shih Tzu, Maltese and Pomeranian owner turn-ins who are need of re-homing for whatever reason (to save them from even a temporary stay at a shelter).

We advocate the spaying and neutering of all animals -- no pup will be adopted from this organization before he/she has been altered. We also treat these pups as if they were our own, providing them with care, attention, a loving environment and rehabilitation, when necessary, to prepare them for their forever homes.

We are a non-profit, 501c3 organization. The adoption fee for each pup goes towards subsidizing the expenses involved in preparing the pups for adoption. This includes altering, grooming, de-worming, flea treatment, medical attention, prescriptions, vaccinations and home delivery. Transport, where/when applicable, is not included.

Our utmost goal is to adopt to humans who will provide the perfect "forever" home for these little furbabies -- wonderful animals who deserve a second chance at a great life.

Our Adoption Process...

How do I start the adoption process to adopt from Lhasa Happy Homes Rescue?

1. COMPLETE THE APPLICATION ON OUR WEBSITE AT WWW.LHASAHAPPYHOMES.ORG
If you are interested in any of the pups at Lhasa Happy Homes, the first step is to complete the application. Until we know a little about you and what you are looking for, it is impossible for us to tell if a dog is right for you and your family.

2. APPLICATION WILL BE REVIEWED
Once your application has been reviewed and hopefully approved, we will contact you (either by phone or by email) to discuss this adoption further and to set up a time to meet the animal of your choice. You might find us a bit "invasive" with the questions you are asked…that's why they often call us the "Benevolent Lhasa Nazis." Our only objective is to make the perfect match, and we truly go that extra mile in search of exceptional homes for our little furry friends. Each has their own unique personality and characteristics. Their lives have been interrupted for one reason or another, and it's our job to make certain wherever they go next is the last time they will have to move! We endeavor to match the pup with what you are looking for so that they are yours forever more! We do not adopt to families with children under 5 yrs old; generally not under 8 yrs old and we rarely adopt out of state.

3. HOME CHECK WILL BE ARRANGED
The goal here is to make sure the home is secure and that the dog is not likely to get out and lost again! This will either be arranged prior to or after you have met the dog you are interested in. We may, at our discretion, accept photos of your home in lieu of a home visit.

4. REVIEW AND SIGN AGREEMENT
Pay a donation (adoption donation starts at $200-400). The donation includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, grooming, vet check, deworming, defleaing, leash/collar/ID tag and microchip. Then take home your new child!

We would be honored to help you find
your new family member.
