THIS IS BERKELEY….who is a wonderful dog, a 15 lb, b/w, 6.5 yrs old, Lhasa Apso — with a dash of Shih Tzu! Berkeley really is a sweetheart of a dog.  He was abandoned on the streets in Lancaster 5 yrs ago, likely a result of the economic demise, with no ID or microchip. Lucky for Berkeley he was rescued and not eaten by a coyote or hit by a car.  He was only 18 months old at the time and yet had the best temperament.  We placed him in a wonderful home, where his parents worked from home, but their situation has changed and they are now gone all day.  Berkeley is not happy, and so they are rehoming him.  He is not good left alone in long stretches — but an hour or two with other dog(s) and he’s an angel. His first foster called him a dream dog!!  He is a loving, laid back boy, who likes to play and is very social. We think that Berkeley was traumatized when he was initially abandoned and seems to have separation anxiety as a result.  He is fine at his daycare when left 2-3 hours alone with the dogs.   Berkeley would be best in a mature home where he has company all day (human and dog(s) — he is just an absolute lover, plays with toys….but can’t go to a home where he is left alone all day. He is a social guy, follows you around everywhere….wants to be part of the family…and so he should be!  You’ll need to reserve his place on the bed… because he’d love to share one with you!  He seems to be potty trained at his present home, but we can’t promise at yours! He’s a very smart dog, so with patience, he’ll definitely aim to please you.  His next home will be his last home, so if you are looking for a fabulous dog to pamper and love, this is your boy!  He will give back 500%.

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
