MEET THE REMARKABLE MISS FOLLY!  Folly is a cream colored, 5 yr old Lhasa Apso, who came to us from the Coachella Animal shelter with a broken jaw and no eyes.  When we heard about Folly, it brought tears to our eyes and being a Lhasa, we had to take her.  And we are so glad that we did!  Upon her arrival, we saw that her eye globes were intact and open but under developed, gave her no sight and were causing infection.  Our vet said the best thing to do was to remove them, so we did!  This is her “before” pic:

Folly saw the Doggie Dentist, who said that her broken jaw was likely from an attack by another dog earlier in her life. 🙁 It had healed and wasn’t causing her any pain, but we had it repaired so she would be more comfortable.  After 2 weeks eating soft food, she is all healed up and ready for adoption!

Folly is really well adjusted with her “challenges” — she loves her food and she knows where her human is at all times (because she follows you like a shadow)!  She is a very smart girl!  She can get herself on/off furniture without assistance and knows how to use a dog door.  Folly is leash trained, good in the car, quiet and happy to be loved.  She would be fine as an only dog, with an active senior, with respectful older kids or in just about any home where her human is around most of the time.  A yard would be a plus to assist in her potty training, which is going well.  She doesn’t like being left alone, and will bark, but she settles down.  She is mellow and easy going, despite her issues. 

Folly is still young and has a lot of life left.  If you really want to rescue a dog, here is one who NEEDS you!  Do you need to be rescued?  Only serious inquiries please.
