THIS IS NIKKO….a happy, outgoing, black/white, 2 yr old, 17 lb, Lhasa Apso, who is thrilled to be out of the Inland Valley Shelter!  This poor little guy came out of the shelter with a slit eye, like a botched surgery had been done and left unhealed.  Poor Nikko had to be in pain, but we took him to the vet and had his eye taken out.  Lhasa have keen senses and he is doing just fine with one eye! Nikko does not like being left alone, he is very people and dog oriented…but he is a bit on the dominant side!  He likes to be large and in charge!  He is always the first to get on the leash to explore the neighborhood!  And the first to the food bowl — but he is not food aggressive or aggressive in any other way.  He is good on walks, but he does pull on the leash and will need obedience training.  He is great in the car and loves to go for rides!  He would be best in a household where there is another (small) dog who can be his buddy and kids over 8 yrs old are welcomed.  He might bark at him to urge him to play though!  He does quiet down and it’s just to show his pals he’s ready!  Nikko is a super dog and will be even better with training.  He is adorable carrying around one of his favorite toys! He would best be paired with a female.  A yard would be a plus, as he does bark to alert at times and apartment living would probably not suit him.  If you like to go hiking or running….he’s your partner!  Could you have this boy in your life forever?
