MEET CHICKLETT and BEAR….a pair of Lhasa mix boys who came from the West LA shelter (with those names). Chicklet is a tan/white, (also liver with light gorgeous eyes), 16 lbs, 5 yr old, Lhasa Mix; Bear is a tan, 22 lb, 7 yr old Lhasa Mix. Their story is one we hear so often — owner became incapacitated and went into a nursing home, leaving them behind. The shelter gave them to another rescue, where a volunteer accidently dropped Bear on his head…no damage was done, but they didn’t take him back and the shelter called us.
Chicklet and Bear are something! They are lovable, active, playful boys who act like puppies!
Chicklet has long legs unlike a Lhasa but they both have long bodies and Lhasa tails! Chicklet can be a bit reactive to other dogs on the leash, but we are working with him on this. They are very quiet — haven’t heard them bark — but they just arrived! Chicklet will whine when he wants attention, but he is very loving when he takes a minute to settle down.
Bear is a little more laid back than his bro (not siblings) but he still has a lot of zoomy in him! He especially loves to play with toys and is very kissy and affectionate. He is a little bigger and could use losing a few pounds, so we are working on this! Nevertheless, he keeps up with Chicklet on a leash and acts like he doesn’t have a care in the world. Well, he really doesn’t! They both love their walks!
Ideally, the boys need an active home with a yard so that they can run around and play…kids would be wonderful and welcomed. If you don’t have a yard, then take them to the park often and that would make them very happy! Sadly, this wasn’t their first time in a shelter, as that is where the mother got them four years ago. No idea why anyone would give up there boys as they are wonderful. Even seem potty trained (but no guarantees). They are the sweetest, happy-go-lucky pups and would love just playing and sleeping the day away! That is what dogs do!! If you are looking for a pair, we want these boys to be home for Christmas. Can you make that happen?
