MEET BUGSY (formerly Oreo)…a gorgeous, black/black and white, 13.5 lb, 4 yr old Lhasa Tzu, whose family decided they could no longer keep this lovebug so they unceremoniously dumped him in the shelter.  While he just arrived, we cannot figure out why they did this…except maybe they didn’t have any time for this sweetheart!  His matts broke three of our groomer’s blades, he was in such bad shape!! 

Now, we are accustomed to taking dogs who are a mess, but usually  they come with other issues as well…but NOT Mr. Bugsy!  Aside from the fact that he doesn’t like being left with nobody around (fine with another dog or people), we haven’t found a single issue.  He does like to make his presence known and will bark for your attention, but not annoyingly so.  

And if you are looking for a dog to shower you with kisses, or chase after a toy and then not know what to do with it, or walk well on a leash by pulling you a long…easily remedied with this smart boy…he’s here for you.  All you have to do is provide love, support, attention…and another dog to keep Bugsy company when you are gone.  He seems to have the potty training thing down, but no guarantees at your house.  He will use a pp pad if necessary. 

Bugsy just arrived so we’ll be updating as we learn more, but this is a wonderful dog who just needs a home where he will get the training and attention he needs to be the best pup and loyal companion he can be.  Does he sound like he would fit in your family?

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
