MEET CYRUS…a handsome, 20 lb, black/white, 4 yr old Lhasa Mix.  We would say pure Lhasa, because he does have the intelligence, wary of strangers and Lhasa stance…but his nose comes from another unknown breed!  Cyrus came from the Harbor Shelter, the family adopted him but never came to pick him up!  He needed surgery for a wall hernia, which was done and no big deal. 

At first, Cyrus is very guarded and aloof.  He’s a Lhasa!  When he trusts you, he wants to rub his head and body all over you, and claim you for his own!  Once he bonds…he bonds like velcro!  LOVES TO CUDDLE.  He definitely wants to sleep in bed with you!!  He might lift his lip to let you know he doesn’t like something …but with consistency, LOTS of love and attention, he learns quickly that you are not going to hurt him.  He loves to follow you around, snuggle with you, he is great on walks, seems to be potty trained (no guarantees!) and very quiet.  We haven’t heard him bark!  He loves going in the car with you and is VERY food motivated.  But, don’t try to take a bone out of his mouth…his bones are his best buddies!  He is kissy and loves attention but is not for the faint at heart — he is a Lhasa who needs training to be the best boy he can be.  He is not aggressive; a bit fearful but once you get past that, he’s a terrific companion. 

Best home would be no kids, a single or couple who want to give a wonderful, special boy a forever home.  Previous Lhasa parenting would be a great plus.  He is good with dogs but doesn’t really care either way as long as he has you!!

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
