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 robin.baker@cgg.com. Start the process of adopting me or one of the other pups by filling out the application found at www.shihtzu-rescue.com.

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.
