NELLIE's Story...

MEET NELLIE...a zoftig, but adorable, 7 yr old, 21 lb (more of her to love), tan/white with black tips Lhasa Apso female. Nellie was dumped in the Baldwin Park Shelter by her owner and her daughter, on her way to a senior home that did not allow dogs. It's very clear to us that Nellie was never walked and while she likely was loved, she was overfed and under exercised. She really is like a stuffed (literally) cuddly and fluffy! That being said....she is very lovable and once she sheds a few pounds, she will be more lively and happy! She loves to play with toys and entertains herself. She is great with people and kids...she is OK with most dogs, preferably males. She loves to be with you and will throw herself on her back to get belly rubs! She is rather slow, as her foster puts it...but not to the bowl of food at super time! Then, she is faster than the speed of light! Very food motivated you might say! Nellie would love a home where she would be loved to life...walked (even though she will resist!) and snuggled a lot. She would be great in a mature home, although she would be great with the grandkids! She will be a great companion and cuddle-buddy! Nellie is waiting to come home with you!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

NELLIE, 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.
