RIVA's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

RIVA's Story...
RIVA is a 6 yr old, silver gray, 15 lb Lhasa Apso. They had mis ID'd her at the shelter as a Poodle...they couldn't tell what she was under all the foxtails and burrs. This little girl was a champ at the groomers, getting all those stickers pulled from her coat....now she dons a summer cut and pretty red bows. She is very quiet, laid back and would be great in a senior home or a home that wants a loving, appreciative lap dog. She might even be housetrained, but we never promise. She would be happy being an only dog, or could have canine sibblings. Probably gets along fine with cats. She's just a great companion animal! She has recovered from Kennel Cough and will be at adoptions this week. She is still quite thin so she will need a home that will pamper her and fatten her up!! Come see this pup at our adoptions event on Sunday 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
Lhasa Happy Homes.


If you are interested in adopting a pup from Lhasa Happy Homes, please complete the application at the bottom of our home page at Adoption Application, fax or email before calling. We will contact you once it has been reviewed. Thanks for considering saving a life...it will be the best gift you ever give yourself or your family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

RIVA, 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.
