I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

THIS IS SHAKESPEARE.....who is really a ham on the stage of life!! This gorgeous, black/tan, 20 lb , 2 yr old Lhasa Apso X, was a favorite amongst the shelter volunteers....but didn't do so well with the "men in uniform" who really scared him!! Shakespeare is very active and will need lots of playing and exercise. This is not a couch potato! He is very friendly with people, and wants to be near his human. He does settle down but probably would do best in a home where there are older kids and the activity level is moderate to high. He LOVES his toys and he LOVES other little dogs....but will bark at big dogs. His former home left him outside and he never really learned how to play with dogs, so he was an "in your face" kind of playful pup. However, now that he has gone thru Doggie Bootcamp, he is much better. He needs a guardian who will keep him in line and exercise and love him to life. He'll need some housetraining pointers but will do best with outside access (no apartment living for this dude). He graduated from Doggie Land Bootcamp with honors. He is absolutely NON AGGRESSIVE with anyone or anything. He loves to play fetch and is very curious. He's bigger than your average lhasa, more to love! He gives kisses and when he looks at you with his big brown want to put the world at his paws! This dog can be seen at the Westchester Petco, 8801 S. Sepulveda Blvd., 12-4pm on October 21. Or, if she is not adopted, come see this pup at our adoptions event on Sundays in Brentwood at the Farmer's Market between Montana and San Vicente on Gretna Green Way, (mapquest 740 Gretna Green Way, Brentwood, CA). Please bring a copy of your application and pictures of your home and yard if we have not done a home check! See our home page for more details about our adoptions at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SHAKESPEARE, 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.
