EMERSON's Story...

THIS IS EMERSON...and even though it's difficult to take a picture of a coal black dog....Emerson is so adorable, his cuteness clearly shines through the camera lens! This 14 lb, 2 yr old, Lhasa Mix is a sweetheart of a pup! He loves everyone....people, other dogs, kids (over 8 yrs old please) -- just about everyone and everything! He is very submissive, he is even good with cats! Emerson came from a high kill shelter towards Central California, where little dogs like him just don't get adopted. We're not sure if it is because he is black or if they just don't understand the breed...but Emerson is about as sweet as they come. He came to us unneutered, so he was marking at first -- but even that has subsided. Putting him on a schedule will definitely be the way to go for success. He seems potty trained now, but no guarantees!!! He is a kissy face romeo...who loves to be with his peeps. He does like to play with other dogs but could go to a home without another dog as long as he is not left alone all day. He'd prefer having a companion of one kind or another...and a lot of people time. His favorite place is with his head in your lap....and he loves to snuggle! While he isn't allowed to sleep on the bed in his foster home (only because their bed is too crowded) -- if he had his choice that would be it! That being said, Emerson is smart and knows the word "no!" and does listen. Training definitely should be in his future, so that he can be the best companion he can be. If he sounds like your type of pupster....come and get him!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

EMERSON, 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.
