ARBY's Story...
ARBY is a cream, 3 yr old, 20 lb, Lhasa Apso. This happy, beautiful boy is dominant and loves people and other dogs...but he needs structure in his life to know that he is not #1 and he is NOT the alpha in the household. He is very playful and loving, but as many lhasa are, he is protective and guarding. His ideal guardian(s) will have an active lifestyle and MUST have lhasa experience!! He needs to be walked/run on a daily basis. He needs to go into a home with or without another dog, but he loves to play play play and play some more!! Arby needs to know that he is loved but is the #2 dog if he goes to a home with another dog. He's dominant so he needs a firm but loving guardian who will remind him of all the things he learned in training at Doggie Land's bootcamp program! Arby comes with 2 free lessons at Doggie Land. Arby responds to positive training....he is food motivated and will do anything for a treat!! Once he knows you, he is just happy, happy, happy all of the time. He is extremely affectionate and very playful. Lots and lots of kisses and his tail never stops wagging. A yard in his life is imperative. You can almost hear him yelling yyyaaaaawwwhhhoooo! He needs a structured home that will keep him on track and remind him of his training. He really is quite vocal if a "conversation" with others is happening....he likes to speak his mind!!" and he will bark at strangers (that's what he was bred to do!). He was a champ at the groomers, despite the fact that he was totally infested with ticks (no longer!!). Arby wants to please you....but he can be stubborn! He may mark in your home but he knows how to use the doggie door and we believe him to be housebroken (but we will not guarantee).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ARBY, a Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles, or seeking a Lhasa Apso 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 breeders who help with Lhasa Apso rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
