    Meet Miss Belle! She is a 3 year old female Shih-tzu / Lhasa-Apso mix. She weighs approximately 13 lbs. and has a very sweet disposition. She is black and grey in color. Belle came to us from a Shelter down in KY when her owner dropped her off. The shelter was getting ready to do a transport of other dogs to Puppy Pals Rescue and the shelter people called to see if we would take Belle. Belle was put on the transport to PPR. When Belle arrived it was obvious that she needed our help. Her fur was matted and full of ticks and fleas. She had two cherry eyes which needed repaired and she needed to be completely ... (Read More)vetted. Once she settled into her foster home, she was taken to the veterinary office for an exam and it was discovered that she needed to take Doxycycline for Lyme disease for 30 days prior to receiving her shots and surgery for both eyes and being spayed. We understand that if your dog does develop clinical illness from Lyme disease, the most common signs are lameness, fever, lethargy, and enlarged lymph nodes. Clinical illness is expected 2-5 months after infection. The majority of dogs respond very well to antibiotic treatment with Doxycycline. Belle was on Doxycycline for 30 days (which is the treatment). PPR also noticed that Belle has a slight front leg limp which we thought was a sign of the Lyme disease. This was not the case. PPR had arranged for her to have a series of x-rays of her leg and it was discovered that she has an 'olecranon elbow' defect according to our vet. Our vet stated that it is most likely a birth defect and there isn't much you can do for it with medicine. She suggested that we consider taking her to an orthopedic dog specialist. Doing some research on the defect, it looks extremely complicated and would require surgery if possible to correct with a pin or band (if it's even possible for Belle). We have an appointment set up for June 8th. We will take her for an examination to see if there is anything that can be done to correct her limp and to determine if she is experiencing any pain. Once we get their opinion, we will determine the next step. Belle is a loving dog - she is very laid back. Her favorite spot is on the back of a chair or couch taking a nap. She gets along with the other dogs in her foster home. She appears to be 98% housetrained - she has had a few accidents. Belle loves to spent time outside laying in the yard. I have a feeling that she might have been kept as an outside dog because at first, I had to coach her to come into the house. Belle's ideal home would be with an older couple or a single person. At this time, we would only consider a home with children that are older due to her leg. Her leg doesn't seem to bother her as she does jump and gets around just fine without complaining. A fenced in yard is preferred as she loves to spend time outside. She loves to play hide-n-seek and has this funny grin where she shows her teeth when she is happy to see you. She is very sweet girl and one of a kind. PPR will do all that we can to try to help her. We will provide updates after her appointment.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Lhasa Apso in Ohio
    Lhasa Apso Dogs can make good pets in Ohio 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.
