    I am looking for my perfect home within 50 miles of Chicago Illinois Our Adoption Process... Adoption Application Meet and Greet Home visit Adoption Contract Adoption fee COME SEE MORE PHOTOS AND UPDATES AT . My name is Mikey and I am an 9-10yr old 15lb male super sweet Lhasa Apso or Lhasa Apso mix. I did get my dental done and yes sadly I do have cataracts, the rescue would love to see about correcting this but with minimal funding and other dogs in the rescue that may not be an option. This means is I can see shadows but in the dark have a harder time and may run into things and eventually I may ... (Read More)go blind. I also seem to be hard of hearing, the vet said there is nothing wrong with my ears such as infection or anything but I do not respond to voice or barking of the other dogs, I could have been born deaf, very stubborn or a big language barrier but we are leaning towards hearing impaired. Neither of these things mae me not love and enjoy life and I love life just the way I am. My handicaps are why I can not go into a home with children and I need a home that will approach me slow cause if you scare me I turn like I am going to nip you but I have never bitten anyone. My foster mom says I am super sweet and love to be in the company of my humans, I will sit and cuddle with you and am very happy to see you. I am doing very good with my housebreaking but have had a couple of mistakes but my foster mom does have a busy schedule and I may need to go out a little more frequently but I do only piddle on the tile never the carpet, a little more work and I can be perfect. I do great with the other dogs and cats in the home and never show aggression towards them.I am looking for my final forever home even with my disabilities I am still a loving dog and I just want love and love furever. Can you be that family? . **Feb 2nd 2015** Well my microchip address was no longer valid and the phone number listed was no longer valid, after much research the family was found and contacted. ..They changed their minds they no longer wanted me **Feb 6th 2015** My foster Mommy came and sprung me out of the shelter and I am super happy. I am currently staying with her until my furever home and vetting can be completed!! My foster Mommy does think I may have a hearing issue so that will be checked out to make sure it is not selective hearing, language barrier or upbringing. I do like to hump the other pets that will be something that will be worked on esp since if I am truly deaf could get me into trouble with another dog giving me a warning that I will not hear. . Feb 10th 2014 Foster Mom says I def live sleep on the bed and the soft beds that are laying around. I'll even drag clothes, towels or other pillows into my bed too make it even more comfy. I appear to be doing very good and appear to be housebroken so far and only have had a couple accidents which is too be expected due to all my stress. I am doing great and will be going in for my dental soon. . Feb 18th 2015 Well I did have a couple more accidents in the home but it was in the basement on the concrete only, not on any of the carpets in the house. My foster Mom does have a busy schedule, I'm still doing great with the other animals, Foster mom has noticed a few things I still act like I dont hear which could mean, stubborn, deaf, hard of hearing or know Spanish. I seem to be running into things lately, having a hard time seeing. I do prefer women over men and I am timid sometimes with certain men and great with other men. . March 6th 2015 I finally got my dental done..yeeaaaaa! No teeth had to be removed and now I have nice clean teeth. The vet did say I had a slightly high reading on one kidney but said it is nothing to worry about and it could be I have been eating cat food when I can sneak it in. . March 18th 2014 Hello everyone, well it has been decided I will definitely need an adult only family due to my eyesight. I have cataracts which means I don't see like I should and I can spook very easily... if you approach to fast or suprise me I get scared and may nip. I really love women over men but will deal with most men. I need a family who will go very slow and allow me the time to adjust to my surroundings and get the layout. I do love to snuggle but I need to come to you. I am a little hard of hearing and you need to be close for me to hear you. and quite family who will give me the time to adjust. I LOVE me walks and so very well walking on a leash. I do well with cats and dogs but I am food aggressive so I would need to be fed separate but me being the only dog may allow me to adjust better to my own home. The rescue would love to fix my cataracts but the funding is preventing that but they are still researching options. Please don't pass me by due to my eyesight I do have much love to give if you will give me the time to do it. Tail wags Mikey (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Lhasa Apso in Illinois
    Lhasa Apso Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Lhasa Apso is a darling long haired lap dog. Lhasa Apsos have a loud bark and make good watchdogs. Lhasa Apsos are friendly, but do not like to be teased by children. Lhasa Apsos are best suited to homes where they are the only pet, and need a firm master. Lhasa Apsos need to be with their people, and are good dogs with which to travel. This breed can live in an apartment if it gets enough activity and is walked every day.

Lhasa Apso
lnteresting Lhasa Apso Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The Lhasa Apso was once used as a monastery watchdog. Lhasa Apsos are named after the Tibetan city of Lhasa, a sacred place. Lhasa Apsos only belonged to Tibetan royals and holy men for thousands of years. According to Tibetan legend, when the master of a Lhasa Apso died, his soul would enter the body of his dog, and so these dogs were considered sacred.
