Arthur Deogi 04-05-2009-3047.JPG

Hello again!  My name is Arthur and I just wanted to say “I’M STILL HERE!!!!”  I am in a wonderful foster home with a great foster family, but I sure would like my very own forever home.  Here’s my little story when I was featured as Fluff of the Week back in April.  Read about me and check out my Petfinder page too.  My foster mom will tell you all about me and what a great companion I would be for YOU!!!  You can reach her at robbie@shih-tzurescue.com


Hello!  My name is Arthur and I’d like to tell you a bit about myself.  First of all, I’d like to say that I REALLY, REALLY want to find my forever home.    I was found as a stray right before Hurricane Ike passed through Texas.  I was very lucky to wind up at Lone Star as I was not very healthy.  I had kennel cough and also was heartworm positive.  My heartworm treatment is finally finished and was successful.  Now I am healthy, happy, and ready for my new family to find me. 

I am a 2 year old black and white Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mix.  I weigh about 14 pounds or so.  My foster mom tells me that I am a sweet boy.  I’m a bit shy when I first meet you, especially if you are a man.  But, WOW do I ever love the ladies!  Actually, once I get to know you, even if you are a man, I will love, love, love you.  I know that I could be your forever friend.

My ideal forever home would be a quiet one with no young children.  I get along well with other dogs and I would also love to have another dog in my forever home.  Please think about me as part of your family.  I promise that I will be your forever friend.

You can read more about me on my Petfinder page.  Or, better yet, please email my foster mom at robbie@shihtzu-rescue.com.  She will tell you what a special little guy I am.  I deserve to find my very own special family.  Please let that be you.

I am altered, up-to-date on all my shots and am heartworm negative.

Hello!  My name is Chula and I am a 3 year old Lhasa Apso girl.  Chula is Spanish for pretty and you can see by my picture that I am definitely that!  Actually everyone says that I am cute, cute, cute!!!

I have been with my foster family for only about two weeks.  When I first got there I just didn’t know how to act.  I was bouncing all over the place with great exuberance and I think my foster brothers and sisters were a little scared of me.  But, my foster mom started teaching me manners and I am so much better and calmer now.  I just needed to learn how to be a dog!  I am very smart and I catch on to things quite quickly.

I LOVE to be around people.  My foster parents take me to Starbucks and another local restaurant all the time and I am SOOOOO good when I am there!  I really enjoy watching all the people.  I sit patiently waiting and watching and hoping that someone will drop something for me!  I also love to go in the car for rides and I get very excited when I hear my leash jingle.  That means that I am either going for a walk or on a new adventure.

Speaking of adventures…………..take a look at my picture in PetsMart.  My foster mom took me there and it was amazing!  I love squeaky toys and will play with them until they squeak no more.  When Mom took me to PetsMart and I saw ALL THE BINS WITH TOYS, I just couldn’t believe it.  Mom laughed at me and just had to take my picture because I was in seventh heaven.  I kept taking toys out of bins and a PetsMart employee followed me and put them back in the bins.  It was a great game that we were playing.

You can see that I am a fun-loving little girl who would love to find her forever home.  Please email my foster mom at mina184@yahoo.com.  She’ll tell you all about me.  Also, please look at my Petfinder page for even more information.

Hello out there!  I just want you to know that even though I have been at Lone Star a while I am up for adoption and definitely ready for my “furever” home.

I am a 7 year old Lhasa Apso lad.  I do have a bit of “Lhasatude” but what Lhasa Apso doesn’t??!!  I just need to know that you are the boss and I will then love, love, love, you.  And, I will be very loyal to you.  I am really a very sweet and loving boy.  I do love to be close to my foster mom and I especially like it when she scratches my ears, chin and back.  That is definitely the good life!!  I also will curl up next to my foster mom on the bed and give her kisses.  If she doesn’t start petting me or has stopped, I will “paw” her hand for more.

I have the Good Citizenship award, so I definitely know how to behave, but sometimes when my stubbornness kicks in so does the Lhasatude.  Because of that I need to go to a home without younger children.  Anyone over the age of 16 would be great though!  My perfect home would be one where my family understands my breed and also where I can be the only child – oops I mean dog!!

I really am a good boy and would love to find my forever home.  If you know, understand, and love the Lhasa Apso breed I’m your man!!  You can contact my foster family at adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com if you have any questions.  Also, please check out my Petfinder page.  I promise to love you.
