Ever had a Lhasa Apso? They are cute, low energy dogs which is great for senior citizens and anyone not wanting to play fetch and tug-o-war as soon as they get home from work. If you're looking for a dog to cuddle by the fire with and take on leisurely walks, this is the dog for you. These dogs are from a puppy mill and may need special care so be sure to click on the puppy mill link below.
The New Albany Floyd County Animal Shelter has taken in a group of puppy mill dogs that are in various stages of assessment/adoptability. The Lhasas range in age from 18 months to 4 years in age. We will be accepting applications for the 1st 2 dogs of the group tomorrow at noon on a 1st come 1st served basis. They will not be ready to leave until we have the results of their heartworm tests tomorrow afternoon.
More Lhasas will be available next week and in the future as they begin to recover from their puppy mill lifestyle. If you are interested in these dogs, make sure that you read the info on the website about rehabilitating a puppy mill dog before you apply to adopt one. These are special needs dogs, and interested adopters need to be informed!
