THIS IS FELIX....a wonderful, 15 lb, b/w, 8 yr old Lhasa Tzu, who came to us from the Lancaster shelter 7 years ago....yep, 7 years ago. We thought we placed him in his forever, ever after home, but we got a call from his guardian who had a short sale on her home and decided she couldn't take him with her. I'm sure this wouldn't have happened if Felix was a human child. Felix (who she named "Karma") was always a wonderful guy and his only issues are that he is afraid of big dogs (until he gets to know them) and fireworks! He can be an escape artist, which is how we probably got him in the first place, but if he gets enough attention, he won't want to leave! He's good with other dogs, and still loves to play, needs another dog only if he is left along, as he will bark without a companion! His former guardian says he can be very protective on walks...and that he isn't great with kids -- but he loved her grandson. He would be good in a mature home that is looking for a lover and one with energy. One would never guess he is 8-9 years old! He loves his chewies and plays with toys, gives lots of kisses and is a great guy. Like these breeds, he has his occasional ear and eye infections, but overall, his health is great....so we've been told! Felix has been trained to use a doggie door and is potty trained -- but no guarantees!! He knows the sit command and wants to please. Does this sound like a dog you could love for the rest of his life?? That's what he needs.....
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 Sundays, unless we are doing a special event, we are at My Pet Naturally (12001 W. Pico Blvd., West LA 90064) from 11a-3:30pm. 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.
