**PUPDATE: Tink is in training until October 1, so she will not be at adoptions until October 8
THIS IS TINK…aka Tinker, Stinker, Tinky, Cranky and, well, you get it! Tink is a tan/white with black tips, 12 lb, 4.5 yr old mix of Shih Tzu and Pekingese! Her story is sad…her senior human mom got her as a puppy and was told she was pure Shih Tzu. Nope — she does shed a tiny bit and those Payot sidelocks are a dead Pekingese giveaway! Tink’s human loved her to pieces and took wonderful care of her…but when she went blind, she was afraid to take Tink outside for fear she would ingest something she shouldn’t. So, Tink used PP pads mostly. Unfortunately, when mom went into assisted living, Tink couldn’t come, so she is now with us. On walks, she can be like a tornado chasing after anything that moves… big trucks, anyone on wheels and runners…so definitely will benefit from leash training.
Tink has a big personality! A sweetheart except when she wants to be a stinker! It takes her a bit to get to know you, so she needs a ‘get acquainted period.’ Once she trusts you, when you are resting she will climb all over you like a billy goat and plop herself across your body to protect you! She will follow you everywhere and sits between your legs peeking out when you stop on a walk! Can be nippy when she feels threatened (she has bitten) or is guarding something. She will come to you and kiss you on the face, but doesn’t like you in her face. Does guard her food, so you need to be aware of this when handling her treats or food. Tink has found her voice and will bark for attention…and she is a big snorer! Tink is such a character you have to love her to pieces like we do. But she definitely needs training.
Best home would be one where she gets a lot of attention, training to be a model citizen and love with parameters. Tink is more of a one-person dog, but she is okay with other dogs (doesn’t play) and multiple people. No kids please. An experienced, patient home that will work with her idiosyncrasies and learn to adapt, is what she needs. Once she loves you, she loves big, bonds like glue!! AND….she just started playing with toys!!
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!
