MEET CODY….an actual Lhasa Apso!  This handsome brown/blk/white, 2 yr old, 18 lb, boy came from the Carson Shelter with a bad rap…he’s a Lhasa after all.  Cody is a wonderful dog 85% of the time.  He is fun, playful, happy, good walker, joyous, great with other dogs, quiet (for the most part) busy, loving and cuddly.  But when you do something he doesn’t like — like putting meds in his ears or trying to groom him — not so much.  He is getting more trusting and those are the only things that bug him that we’ve noticed… but we believe and hope with training in his home he will become a trusting dog.  He is a kissyface…he could be alone a few hours (not more than 3-4 please) but we want him to be in a home where he will get a ton of attention, along with parameters.   After all, he is a 2-year old puppy, who likes to prance and play and hasn’t ever had training.  Another dog in the home would be outstanding.  That being said, he seems to be potty trained, but no guarantees at your house.  Cody has a funny haircut because we tried to groom him when he first arrived and he got tired of the clippers!  It would be perfect if you like to groom your dog!  But we want Cody to go to a home where you LOVE and understand the breed. He just needs manners!  No kids please (only because they pull tails).  Cody is not unpredictable.  His eyes get really red when he is mad!  Mostly, he is too busy kissing you to fight!  Are you looking for a Lhasa who is looking to be a part of your family?  He’s looking for you!
