Gizmo's Story...
Cher and Gizmo are a sweet senior couple who would love to spend their golden years together with a family to love them. They were surrendered to Rocket Dog Rescue by their owner, when the owner moved away and was unable to take them. They are a very bonded pair, and need to be adopted together.

Cher is a 14 year old, 6 lb apricot colored toy poodle. She is very sweet and friendly, and gets along with people and other dogs. She loves to be held, and would love nothing more than to sit on your lap or be carried around all day. Gizmo is a 13 year old, 20 lb. black and white parti-color lhasa apso. He is wary of strangers, but if he knows you he's very sweet and affectionate and doesn't take too long to warm up to new people. He loves to snuggle and give kisses.

Cher and Gizmo are both housebroken and crate trained. They're minimal shedders, great for people with allergies (or just an aversion to cleaning up pet hair), but will need to be brushed regularly to prevent their fur from matting if it's left to grow long. They're spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, and have no known health issues. Because of their age and size, they would be best suited to a family with no children, or older, respectful children. They're the perfect pets for a retired person or couple who is home all day and would like companionship, as they are low energy and have minimal exercise needs. They could also do well with a family that is at work/school during the day, as they are happy to nap in their crate together while waiting for you to come home.


Adopting a rescued animal is a lifetime commitment! Adopters must complete a questionnaire, personal interview and home visit prior to adopting a Rocket Dog. There is a non-refundable $240.00 adoption fee which helps us defer the cost of spay/neutering, vaccinations and microchipping, food and medication (Rocket Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization and this fee enables us to continue rescuing and helping animals).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gizmo, a San Francisco 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 San Francisco, or seeking a Lhasa Apso dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Francisco 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 San Francisco 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 San Francisco paves the way for another one to be saved.
