MEET BUGSY (formerly Oreo)…a gorgeous, black/black and white, 13.5 lb, 4 yr old Lhasa Tzu, whose family decided they could no longer keep this lovebug so they unceremoniously dumped him in the shelter. While he just arrived, we cannot figure out why they did this…except maybe they didn’t have any time for this sweetheart! His mats broke three of our groomer’s blades, he was in such bad shape!!
Now, we are accustomed to taking dogs who are a mess, but usually they come with other issues as well…but NOT Mr. Bugsy! Aside from the fact that he doesn’t like being left with nobody around (fine with another dog or people), we haven’t found a single issue. He does like to make his presence known and will bark for your attention, but not annoyingly so.
And if you are looking for a dog to shower you with kisses, or chase after a toy and then not know what to do with it, or walk well on a leash by pulling you along…easily remedied with this smart boy…he’s here for you. All you have to do is provide love, support, attention…and another dog to keep Bugsy company when you are gone. He seems to have the potty training thing down, but no guarantees at your house. He will use a pp pad if necessary.
Bugsy just arrived so we’ll be updating as we learn more, but this is a wonderful dog who just needs a home where he will get the training and attention he needs to be the best pup and loyal companion he can be. Does he sound like he would fit in your family?
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

Lhasa Happy Homes will be now holding our adoption events the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month on Main Street in Santa Monica (check calendar link below for special events and directions). Our event is located at 2116 Main Street, in Santa Monica, CA. Here you will have an opportunity to interact with the dogs and see which might be a perfect fit with your household. Main Street is famous for its innovative shops and is close to the beach! Make a day of it!! Metered parking on the street and free parking on 4th and Bicknell Streets.
Here you will have an opportunity to interact with the dogs and see which might be a perfect fit with your household....and do some fantastic shopping at the same time! 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 pictures or video of your home and yard if we have not done a home check (preferred)! 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!
Don't forget to check out our Events Calendar for more information on upcoming events!
