PAISANO's Story...

MEET, friend, comrade....this boy just wants to be loved and love back. A 14 lb, 2 yrs old, charcoal and white, Lhasa Apso with possibly a pinch of Shih Tzu....Paisano was just dropped off on a corner where many dogs are dumped and their rescue angels could not find his guardians. He's such a good boy and was not in horrible shape, we cannot fathom how he ended up homeless. We got him neutered and up to date on his shots....chipped him and now he is ready to go to YOUR house! This is a family dog who loves people and kids (please over 8 yrs old), but he is a Lhasa and is a bit apprehensive for the first 10 seconds! Paisano ideally would love another single or female confident dog to play with, and maybe kids to wrestle and cuddle with. He responds well to training and would be great with a family who wants to teach him more and engage him. He is not a high maintenance dog, but he will need regular grooming and training. Seems to be getting the hang of the potty training thing...but we never guarantee. Paisano is very attached to his pack and needs a home where he can be a part of the action. He should not be left alone for long periods of time by himself as he does not like being left alone. He really wants to sleep on the bed with his humans, but we have learned that he becomes a little possessive of his human, so he either needs to go to a home with just one other, confident dog or a very engaging family. This is a dog who needs to be part of your family....and he is so worth it. A lover!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PAISANO, a Los Angeles Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu 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/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
