Thomas's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Thomas's Story...
I was the beloved rescued companion of a senior citizen (for the past 3 years) who recently had to enter a nursing facility. I am adjusting in my new foster environment but I yearn for a forever person. I am an extremely handsome Lhasa Apso mix, about six years old. I am very laid back, calm and gentle. No high maintenance here, I'm the perfect docile dog for companionship who wants nothing more than to cuddle up next to you. I have several adorable quirks:I don't really play with toys but I pile them up, carrying them from place to place; when taking walks I prefer the cement surface and gingerly prance on grass; love treats but have a selective palate and when its raining I always need my human to accompany me outside to do my business.

Note: Thomas is very quiet and only barks to alert. Presently he is in a household with 2 other dogs. They don’t play but all are friendly with each other. Initially Thomas can be shy and somewhat aloof to humans but comes around in his own time to show love and loyalty. He is the ideal size, around 22 pounds; large enough that he doesn’t get under foot. “Tommy Bahamas” is the best dog for a person or family that wants a non-intrusive pet. He is crate and house trained, doesn’t try to escape and remains near his home when off leash. Although he knows basic commands, he doesn’t always respond immediately but he is sooo good, he has never needed to be reprimanded. Possible food allergy, so I have him on a grain free diet. If you’re looking for a “low key” canine family member, Thomas is the quintessential candidate. Please email to obtain more information about this wonderful little man. He is up to date on HW prevention, flea prevention, vetting and he is neutered.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Thomas, a Knoxville Lhasa Apso dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso for sale in Knoxville, or seeking a Lhasa Apso dog from a breeder in Knoxville.

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