THIS IS JERICHO....a handsome, exhuberant, happy, 15 lb, tan w/ black tips, 3 yr old Havanese mix...who is really dying to become your very best friend. Even though we think of dogs as "man's best friend" -- for some reason, Jericho's former owners didn't feel that way. We don't know who they are...only the obscene thing they did....they put him in a crate, soaked in urine, and left him in front of Petco Grooming with no information about him. He was a matted mess, obvious that they had not taken proper care of him.
He was not neutered and while he is a young dog, his teeth looked like he'd been eating dirt. Nevertheless....Jericho has risen above it all and is a dog who really does want to please...and like most Havanese, is very smart (and a little stubborn!). He will need some love, patience and training....he seems to do his business outside -- well, afterall, we think that's where he has been living all this time but no promises on his training. No doubt he will need a refresher course! We've had him a little while now and he has calmed down tremendously and is no longer afraid over every guest who comes to your house! He is a gentleman and loves attention. He probably was a dog who came into a home where people worked all day, didn't have time for him and stuck him outside. Havanese and small dogs are very social and they need to be groomed, loved and trained! Jericho is typical, insomuch as he will bark at "some" strangers on the street...but he listens when you say "no" and then goes to lick the stranger! He doesn't have any aggression in him at all. He is kind of oblivious to much other than playing, kissing and being a very active boy. Another dog most definitely should be in his future....a yard...and a family who wants to train him to be the best boy he can be. His transformation has been amazing...we want to make sure he is in a home that will continue...and make him the king of the hill!! Does that sound like you? He'd love to go running, hiking or just playing fetch with you!
Our website is updated daily. Please do not apply for this dog unless your home fits the specified criteria. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, groomed, vet checked, dewormed, deflea'd and come with a leash, collar and ID tag!
If you are interested in adopting a pup from Lhasa Happy Homes, please complete the Adoption Application before calling. We want to give you the time you deserve, so please help us help you!! We will contact you once it has been reviewed.
Most every Sunday, unless we are doing a special event, we are at Century City Mall (10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles 90067 behind the Concierge Booth near Brooks Bros) from 12-4pm. You can see this, and many more, adorable pups at this weekly event! Please do call us if you are coming to see a particular dog to make sure he/she will be at adoptions (we do not bring sick dogs to our adoption events). Please bring a copy of your application and pictures of your home and yard if we have not done a home check! Most importantly, if you have a dog, make sure you bring him or her to do a compatibility match with the dog you are interested in adopting!!! And don't forget to check out our Events Calendar for more information on events we may be doing! See our home page for more details about our adoptions at Lhasa Happy Homes.
Thanks for thinking rescue and adoption....and for considering saving a life. It will be the best gift you ever give yourself or your family.
