Bootsie Barkley's Story...
Hey there, Bootsie here! I’m about 3.5 years old and 11 pounds and lots of fluffy, soft fur. I am super sweet and if I had my choice I would want to be held or cuddled all the time. I love my person! I use my big, round eyes to look up at you and you can’t resist and up I go into your arms for some cuddles. Just what I was after. I would be fine as an only dog or with other dogs. I’m crate trained and if you tell me to ‘load up’ I head to my crate expecting a treat. I lay down and get comfortable as I’m used to sleeping in my crate and it is my safe spot.

I have some special needs as I had back surgery. When the rescue first got me, I couldn’t walk and they weren’t sure if I would walk again. Well I do walk and run! My walk and run is a little stiff but I get around just fine. Due to my back surgery, I shouldn’t jump on furniture or go up or down stairs.

I’m working on my housetraining as my foster mom isn’t sure if I’m just being stubborn or if some of it is because of my back injury. I will go outside and do my business but sometimes I don’t make it outside. You might want me to wear a belly band inside just to be sure until I can show you I am trained.

I am ready-to-go and am looking for my forever home. Am I the one for you? Contact my foster mom for more information: foster24ever@gmail.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bootsie Barkley, 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.
