MEET S’MORES…and why did we name him that? You have never met a kinder, more loving, sweeter 22 lb, 7-8 yr old, tan/white, Lhasa Apso ever! This chunky teddy bear of a dog is absolutely wonderful…smart and cuddly. He is sight challenged — not 100% blind but may only see shadows. He doesn’t really bump into things and is very smart. He is good following another entity (person/dog) and gets the lay of the land quickly. Give him a belly rub and he’ll follow you anywhere! He learned to go up the stairs quickly…and down the stairs in 24 hours. He also knew the path to reach the stairs — after skiing down them a couple of times! We love this boy.
S’mores LOVES toys! He will squeak them until the cows come home! He gets really excited when it’s time to go for a walk, happily wagging his tail. When he arrived from the Downey shelter, he was a bit of a mess and had a skin rash and was a bit itchy, but that is all calming down. The only time we have heard him bark is when a big dog got in his face and he felt threatened — but generally gets alone with everyone. He would even be good with kids over 8 yrs old.
The best home for S’mores would be one where he is doted on a gets a ton of attention. Experience with a blind dog or at least the patience to work with him is best. A yard and few if not any stairs would be optimal to help him with potty training and avoiding any potential stair accidents. That being said, he is smart and wants to please, so if you can handle it…he probably can too! Training for him to get the lay of the land is the best way to set S’mores up for success. Are you up for the task?
