Britches Jefferson's Story...
Hi there, I’m glad to see you checking out my page! I’m Britches Jefferson 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: Lhasa Apso

Gender: I’m a boy

Colors: Black and White

Age: The vet says about 6 years old
Weight: Around 25 pounds

Ideal Home: I would probably do best in a home where I am the only dog or maybe with another small female dog. I don’t like other boy dogs…at all. Sorry guys.

Now for the good stuff!-
I’m a really playful dog! I will run after a toy as long as you have energy to throw it. When you are tired, I will come and get into your lap. I love laps! Like a lot of Lhasa Apsos, I have what they call ‘Lhasa-tude’. I tend to fall in love with one person and I feel the need to really protect that person.

I want to be close to my person as much as I can, preferably in your lap! I love, love, love toys. I like to go on walks a lot. I also like to ride in the car but don’t crowd me with other dogs. I like to go into my crate and take a nap but I really don’t like you to close the door. Though I am a touch Lhasa, I’ll cry if you shut me in!

I was successfully treated for heartworms and have no known medical problems.
If you’d like to ask more questions about me, email my foster mom at 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

Britches Jefferson, 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.
