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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about me. Also, check out my Petfinder page.
