Description:Other Pictures of Gabby (click to see larger version):
Gabby is a 10 yr old Lhasa Apso dog. This breed is originally from Tibet, where they were used as watchdogs in the palaces and monasteries. Gabby does have resource guarding tendencies and she will guard her food fiercely. Gabby is small in stature at about 20lbs. She is a dog that can adapt to just about any home, including an apartment. She will make a new owner a loving family member.
Gabby suffers from dry eyes and she will need medication twice per day for the rest of her life. We also recommend feeding her food specially designed for senior dogs to keep her fit and trim.
Lhasa coats can be long, thick, and beautiful but that requires daily brushing and combing. We have had to cut Gabbys coat short but it will soon grow out again. She was picked up as a stray and seemed to have been fending for herself for a while when she was rescued.
We believe that Gabby will do best with an owner that is at home most of the time. This is a dog that enjoys car rides or hanging out on the couch between walks, just taking each day as they come. Older children, or young children who are gentle with dogs could work with Gabby.
Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue microchips all dogs and cats before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the shoulder blades and are another form of identification should the animal get lost. The microchips are registered to Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue. The adopter's information is added once the adoption is complete. The adopter is responsible for a $19.99/Year registration fee or a $45.00/Lifetime registration fee to change information. Dogs and Cats still need to have collar with tags should they get lost.
