MEET JULIAN…one very lucky dude.  This handsome, sable colored, 15 lb, 5-6 yr old Lhasa Shih Tzu was dumped near a VCA Hospital with a perianal hernia.  He must have good karma because a good Samaritan was going into the hospital to pick up her dog’s ashes and she saw him wandering on the street.  Picked him up, had him scanned for a chip (there was none) and set out to find his owners.  When all that failed, she called us and the rest is history! 

Julian is a lucky boy but we are the fortunate ones!  He is a total sweetheart and a LHH fave.  He had a major perianal hernia and it’s not fun to have your behind surgically repaired!  He wasn’t healing, so we took him back in only to find out he was re-herniated and had to have a another surgery on 4/21/2022, and then a third on 9/9/2022.  He had some complications — not life threatening — but he needed to heal completely before going home.   AND HOW HE IS 100% HEALED!!!!!  YEAH!!  Julian had his final surgery on 3/14/2023 and it was a success!!   This wonderful little booger is worth every penny and soon enough, all those surgeries will be history.  Seems to be potty trained, but we never guarantee.  He really is a special boy. He will be coming to adoptions now.    

Julian is VERY active and loves love.   He has a great temperament  and takes his meds like a champ!  He loves his foster buddies and really wants to play!  At first, the toys had to do and Julian is a toy maniac — took every single toy out of the box and played with all of them!  Now, he’s playing with the pack and loving every minute!  He told us he wants a canine companion who can hang with him and play, so we want to make sure he has one!  He doesn’t love being left alone and will bark, so whomever adopts him should work from home.  Julian can be a bit of an acrobat as he loves to jump on the furniture and you!  Loves his walks, good with everyone he meets, he would be good with kids over 12 yrs (only so he doesn’t knock them over) and he doesn’t have a mean bone in him.  Do you have enough love in your heart to be patient with him and love him to life?  No out of state adoptions.  This is one special dog!!

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
