LORENZO's Story...

LORENZO came from one of the toughest shelters in LA City...South Central. This wonderful, 17 lb, 3 yr old, Lhasa Maltese, has been through hell. He was either hit by a car or badly injured in some way...and when he could no longer walk, he was dumped in the shelter. Xrays showed that Lorenzo had a broken elbow and because it was an older injury, we were told it would be a complicated surgery. Poor baby. Once Lorenzo got over a severe case of kennel cough, bordering on pneumonia, the was done...twice, no less, and Lorenzo has been a trouper through it all. Doc didn't like the way his leg healed the first time, so he repeated the surgery to make sure Lorenzo could walk! This young man loves to play, loves to romp, loves to be with you and other dogs and is a little white shadow! He is affectionate and loves attention (but doesn't demand it). One loves to give him lots of love and he eats it up, he is such a snuggler! He does favor his once injured elbow at times, but it doesn't stop him for a moment! He just loves his walks and to be with you!! He will alert you to strangers and can be vocal...but he's just communicating!! He has a wonderful temperament and you could not find a happier dog. Might you have a place in your heart and your home for this little lovebug?? OK with kids over 8 yrs old. Lorenzo is housetrained but will mark -- so no guarantees!! He's a smart little man and with a consistent schedule, will be easy to train! 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 tag! Thanks for thinking rescue and adoption!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

LORENZO, a Los Angeles Lhasa Apso/Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Maltese for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Maltese dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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/Maltese breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
