Mandisa 20091220 001


Hello!!  My name is Mandi and I am a very happy little girl.  I no longer live in a breeder’s back yard and now am in a wonderful foster home.  I have my very own bed, toys, and a foster family to love me and play with me.  I have truly changed from a scared, anxious little girl to an easy-going, friendly and quite likeable dog!  I am learning what it means to be a dog and I like it!!!


I am about 5 years old and spent most of my life having puppies.  When I was rescued and taken to Lone Star I had just had a litter of pups.  Now my puppies are on their own and don’t need me.  So, I am now ready for my forever home.  I had some problems with my eyes and needed surgery to correct my eyelids so that they would close completely when I sleep.  My eyes turn out a bit, especially my left one.  I may look a little funny, but I can see very well and can close my eyes fully.  I need drops in my eyes every day, but I am a very good girl when my foster mom puts them in my eyes.  I also had bladder stones and needed to have surgery to remove them.  Luckily they were the kind of bladder stones that could just be removed and I am not on a special diet.  Now that my surgeries are over, I FEEL GREAT and life could not be better.


I am a sweet girl and I get along with my foster brothers and sisters great.  We play with each other and just have fun.  I LOVE being a dog!!!  When my foster parents come home I run to the door to greet them.  I also LOVE to follow my foster mom around the house.  Again, that’s something new for me since my former home was a backyard.  I mentioned that I have my very own dog bed BUT, I sure would love to have my very own special person to sleep with in their big bed!  That would be perfect!


Please contact my foster mom at sherry352@sbcglobal.net if you want to learn more about me.  I am an unusual little girl, but I am happy, healthy and full of love.  I just need my very own special family.  Maybe that could be YOU!!  Also, please check out my Petfinder page.  There’s more information there about me and also some other pictures.  Please consider me as part of your family!

My name is Gonzo and what a great little guy I am!!  I am a 7-8 year old Lhasa Apso and I weigh 20 pounds or so.  I have a thick white coat with black tipped ears and am quite the handsome lad!!!  I have a very sweet and loving disposition and love to be loved by my special human friends.  My foster mom says that I am just a down right great guy and she says I’m very low maintenance – whatever that means!  I think it’s a good thing!! 

One of my very most favorite things to do is to go on a walk!  I also like to go for car rides too!  When I see that my foster mom is getting my leash for us to go somewhere I get VERY excited.  I love to see people on my little adventures and will greet you with a friendly tail wag.   I also get along OK with other dogs.  Sometimes if a dog is too pesky towards me I might let them know they are too close, but that’s all. 

I also love my quiet time and particularly enjoy getting pets from my foster mom as I sit on her lap.  That is very special for me.  I sleep all through the night and sometimes I wake my foster mom with my snoring.  I am also housebroken. 

I only have one eye, but that doesn’t bother me a bit.  I still see everything I need to see and I run and play all the time.  I have a particular toy that I like and I carry my little lion that roars all over the house.  Sometimes I have to think if I should put my toy down to eat a treat or to eat my dinner!!  Usually food wins over and my little lion toy is always there waiting for me when I’m finished eating. 

I know I could make you very happy.  I just want someone to love and someone to love me back and take care of me.  Check out my Petfinder page and also please email my foster mom at sunny@lsstlar.org  She’ll tell you all about me.

Benson 10092209 009 

Hello!!  My name is Benson and I am one unique little guy!  I am a 5 year old white Lhasa Apso and I have a little pink nose.  I am unusual in that I am an albino Lhasa.  There’s not too many of us around!!  I think I’m pretty special and very unique looking.  I am full of love and that’s what counts the most!! 


I do have to tell you that I have cataracts from a congenital eye condition.  I have limited vision now and sometimes I wait for one of my foster brothers and sisters to walk ahead of me so I know what to expect.  My foster mom says that my vision problem does not affect me and that I am one happy little guy.  She would like to see my forever home be one that has another dog to help me along. 


I am quite sweet and very loving and love to get attention from anyone who will pay attention to me.  I really love to be with my foster siblings, especially Nailah.  She is always willing to play with me.  I also love to be with my foster mom and I follow her all over the house.  I have a very special little toy that I carry  all around the house.  Sometimes my foster parents play tug-of-war with me and I really like that.  I am protective of my favorite toy, so my foster mom thinks that if my forever home has older children rather than younger that would be best for me. 


I do have some allergies that are controlled with high quality food and supplements, so I will need to continue that in my forever home.


Please think about me as part of your family.  I know that I have special needs, but I’m definitely worth it!  If you want to talk to my foster mom about me, please contact her at sherry352@sbcglobal.net.  She knows me and loves me and will tell you all about me.  Also, please check out my very own Petfinder page for even more information.
