THIS IS WIZARD….and he will sneak into your heart before you know it!  This handsome, white/cream Lhasa with black tips, long eyelashes and a perpetual good temperament is an angel, despite what he has been through.  Wizard was dumped in the Riverside Shelter with a horrible ear infection affecting both ears….worst we’ve ever seen.  He required a lateral ear ablation, but only one canal was removed so his hearing is fine.  The pain he suffered was unfair and unkind of his previous home….and we have a feeling that Wizard was not treated so well there 🙁   He’s fearful when reprimanded with a harsh tone if he has had an accident, but he doesn’t have an aggressive bone in his body.   He is learning to live life all over!  He loves to go in the car, go on long walks and socialize with other dogs.  He’s great with everyone.   Wizard will need a trainer who will work with him patiently and supportive.  His training will be done with benevolence and love!  Wizard can be a little possessive of his human with other dogs — he’ll just butt right in if he isn’t the center of attention!  He would be fine with another dog and would like that, but he isn’t all that playful — just for companionship because he doesn’t like to be alone (a few hours okay).  Wizard needs a family who will love him and work with him with gentle persuasion…a yard would be great for his training….but love is the most important factor in Wizard’s life.  He will work his magic on you and your family….and everyone will live happily ever after 🙂

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
