Darden at Deogi

Hello!!  My name is Darden and I am proud to say that I am a Lone Star dog, up for adoption and ready for my forever home!  I am a sweet 1 ½ year old Lhasa Apso boy.  I have a beautiful short beige coat and a beautiful “pup”onality to match!  My foster mom says that I am a doll! 

I was rescued by a Good Samaritan who discovered that I was living outside, instead of inside, my first home.  She also noticed that I had a limp.  When the Volunteers at Lone Star got me they had me checked out by a veterinarian who said that I have Legg Perthe Syndrome.  That’s a degenerative disease of the hip joint, but I want to tell you that it doesn’t slow me down one bit!   I got an artificial hip, but unfortunately it would not stay in the hip socket, so I still have it, but my hip is not quite right.  I don’t notice that I have any problems and play as long and as hard as all my foster brothers and sisters.  I will probably have to have surgery on my hip sometime in the future due to this problem.

Everyone thinks that I am one great little guy.  I love everyone and love to play with everyone.  I think I could be the perfect dog for your family if you are willing take on my special need. 

Please contact my foster mom at adoptioninquiries@yahoogroups.com and also check out my very own Petfinder page.  I promise that I will love you forever if you give me my “fur”ever home!

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

Hello from sunny Arizona!!!  My name is Marvin and I am a Lone Star dog living in Arizona in a GREAT foster home.  I am a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix boy of about 3 years and I weigh 17 pounds.  I was rescued from one of the local shelters in Texas and was in pretty bad shape.  I had a problem with hair loss, particularly on one of my back legs.  But, with lots of good food, nutritional supplements and love I am healthy, have a great coat, and I am one happy boy.

My most favorite thing is to be with my people.  Wherever my foster mom is, I’m right there.  Or sometimes I prefer to be with my foster dad.  Mostly I like it when they are together because then I get to be with both of them!!!  I particularly like it when they are in the kitchen cooking.  I sprawl right in the middle of the floor to be where the action is, hoping that something might drop my way!!!

I love my foster brothers and sisters and I enjoy playing with them and with my toys.  I am house-trained and even know how to use a doggy door.  What more could you ask for???  Mostly, I am smart, affectionate, funny, and sweet.  I will even talk to you while you are petting me.  My foster mom says that I make a happy little grumbling sound every time she gives me some loving.  I have also been dubbed “Mr. Personality”.  You can tell by my picture that I am a charmer and will steal your heart forever.

The best thing that could happen to me would be that I find my forever home.  I promise to love you and be your best friend forever.  Please email my foster mom at azdoglover713@yahoo.com for more information about me.  Also, check out my Petfinder page.
