Shelby's Story...
Hi! I'm Shelby, a fuzzy ball of snuggliness and happiness. I am a very sweet 5 year old male Lhasa/Poodle mix whose owner passed away. Though I am heartbroken, I am ready to move onto my new family! Now, I know I'm cute, and I cannot argue with you there, but let me tell you a little about me so you can see if we'll be a good fit or not. Now, I like laps, sitting next to you on the couch, and sleeping next to you in bed. I like to be the baby, and I have to admit, my owner never left me alone much, so I'm looking for a home where someone is home all the time. I won't make a very good condo, apartment or townhouse dog due to the fact that I can be pretty vocal when left alone. I hate being alone, don't you? I enjoy having the run of the house, and am housebroken, but I never really caught on to that whole "letting the people know" when I have to go outside- but if you just let me out every so often on some sort of schedule, I'm willing to do all my business outside. Maybe you could teach me to ring some sleigh bells when I have to go potty? I'm a very snuggly boy, and I'm looking for that special someone to love me forever. Is that you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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