Leo Worth's Story...
Hello, it’s me Leo, Leo Worth! 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: White and Tan

Age: The vet says I’m about 5 years old

Weight: 15 pounds

Now for the good stuff!-
Wow - am I ever thankful to Lone Star and all they have done for me. They gave me a second chance when others were going to discard me. How can you discard a face like this? Plus it comes with a pretty neat dog.

I really like my food and am working on not being so greedy so I can keep my figure. I’m a happy-go-lucky boy that likes to play with my foster mom and the other foster dogs. I sometimes get carried away with myself and want to dominate the play but FM just goes uh, uh, uh and I remember what I’m supposed to do. I think I’m a pretty fast learner especially if you have food.

When I came to Lone Star I couldn’t walk and they weren’t sure if I could be fixed. Well, look at me now...I’m walking and running and playing. I do have some limitations since I had back surgery but they are mainly to protect my back so it won’t happen again. I’m not supposed to get on the furniture or bed because jumping down is really hard on my back. Stairs would do the same thing so I need to be in a home that has no stairs.

I’m such a cutie I know I will find a forever home soon. Am I the one for you? Apply to adopt at www.shihtzu-rescue.com. More questions contact my foster mom at foster24ever@gmail.com. You can apply to adopt this adorable little fluff 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leo Worth, 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.
