MEET MASTER HOWIE…a very smart, 1.5 yr old, 17 lb, white w/ gray markings Lhasa Apso mix youngster, who came to Lhasa Happy Homes from the North Central shelter intact, with a broken pelvis and a cherry eye!  He was obviously hit by a car, with blood on his head and his tail…but lucky dog, he didn’t need surgery and his pelvis is healing well; cherry eye repaired and neutered.  He didn’t like wearing the “cone of shame” — but he is a wonderful example of the breed.  We’re not sure of his mix, maybe Bichon as he has a more cottony coat, but the sweetest disposition…we all got lucky!

Howie would love to play with his foster buddies, but we can’t allow him to get that active at this writing.  So, he plays laying down!!  He will try to go after a toy, so we know he likes them, but we can’t let him chase.  He is a great eater and we believe he is potty trained, but we never guarantee.  He goes out and does his business and will love to walk once he can go further than a half a block!!  

We know that Howie really wants a canine companion and you to give him love!  You will be rewarded with him giving  you gentle kisses and big hugs.  Howie will bark for about 3 minutes when you leave then will settle down.  He is wonderful at feeding time and never bothers the others because they eat slower than he does!  He has good manners (although he does like to hog a bit of the attention) and while he is trying to be very active, he understands “stay back” and “wait.”  So, if you are a family with another dog or two…and kids over 8 yrs old (he is so gentle, he deserves well behaved kids)…and you are waiting for a guy like Howie, he’s waiting for you!!  He will be at adoptions to meet (bring your dog with you to meet him).

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
