Onyx's Story...
Onyx is an approximately 1-2 years old mix of Lhasa Apso and poodle, most likely. He is a high-energy boy that loves his toys more than any dog we know! He is happiest when he is chewing on a big soft squeaky toy and can entertain himself for hours. He loves to go for walks, and then snuggle under the blankets with you in the evening. He’s a great companion for children and gets along with other dogs.

Onyx is easily excited by small animals. He is not aggressive (he doesn’t bite or attack), but he does think it’s a great game to bark very loudly and repeatedly at them, so he is probably best in a home without cats or birds.

Onyx does have a slight dry/flaky skin condition, which may clear up with treatment or may be something that he battles his whole life. It’s not very noticeable, and in fact has improved since he’s been with his foster family and eating a high-quality food.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Onyx, a Portland Lhasa Apso/Poodle (Standard) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Poodle (Standard) for sale in Portland, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Poodle (Standard) dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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/Poodle (Standard) breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Poodle (Standard) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
