Ruff Ruff! My name is Wookie
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Male|
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.
Wookie is a 3 year old black lhasa neutered male. He has had a lot of changes in his life and is learning to relax and feel safe. He was found as a stray and taken to a local county shelter. Another rescue took him but returned him to the shelter 45 days later for nipping at a volunteer as she tried to leash him. Well, here at St. Martin’s, we truly are “no kill” and when we got Wookie, he was severely matted and underweight. We had the matts groomed off of him and because they went down to the skin, he was pretty much shaved. We imagine he was quite uncomfortable with those matts. He does not like a hand coming up over his head but does ok with a gentle hand coming on the side of his face or under his chin in order to leash him. He walks very well on a leash and is housetrained. He also knows how to “sit” but a treat must be offered to him under his head and not over his head as this makes him nervous and he will growl. He has put on good weight, but should still be fed away from other dogs. Ideally, he would be in a home with no other dogs or perhaps a real mellow older dog. He is okay with cats, though, and seems to just ignore them. He likes to play with other dogs and would probably do fine in a neutral territory such as a dog park in order to offer him some socialization. He is very loving and allows handling and seeks out attention. He loves to be rubbed on the side of his face will give “head butts” to your legs. We are looking for an experienced lhasa owner with no children or grandchildren in the home. Wookie is otherwise healthy and is current on all vaccines including rabies and is microchipped.
