MEET JAEGGER....and he has the saddest eyes. One has to wonder what he has been thru. He is a tan/white, 18 lb, 1.5-2 yr old, Lhasa Apso, who was transferred from the South Central Shelter to West LA because he just got passed over. He had a cherry eye, which has healed, and had a yeast infection from being left outside...to most, too much work. Just like children, dogs need attention...and it does not seem that he got very much. Jaegger is a fantastic dog who will kiss you and love you and let you know how much he appreciates you. He can be a little mouthy, which is like play biting but also can be out of fear. I can put my whole hand in his mouth and he will not bite me. I can put my face in his, and he will not bite me. It's more like playing, but probably eliminates children from his future home. When he knows and trusts you, you can do almost anything to him. He is good around other dogs, but he would prefer to be your one and only. He is great around people, but you have to take it slowly with him. THIS IS NOT AN AGGRESSIVE DOG AT ALL....he is still just a bit fearful and needs to know that he isn't going to be hit or hurt. We believe that his last home didn't have the patience or time to work with him. He is a young dog and definitely will benefit from training, especially with his possessiveness around his human and his toys! He seems to be potty trained (no promises), but will use pp pads if they are available. Jaegger possesses the Lhasa charm and stubborness, at times, but he is very smart, he listens and he wants to please you. We haven't even heard him bark yet, so he is very quiet! He's great in the car, on a leash and in your lap. All he needs is a guardian who will love him unconditionally, as he will love you. Mature home only please; no kids. Sad eyes...but a happy heart :)
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.
