Hi there, I’m West, a 5yr old, 15 lbs,  happy Lhasa mix boy. 

I’ve been with VIP Rescue for several weeks. You may have read about my story earlier on, because upon arrival I was in horrible shape, but a lot has happened and changed since I got here. I had to go right to the “dog”tor, because I had a very badly injured leg and the Vet thought it best to amputate it. But you know what? VIP Rescue got me all healthy again and gave me some much needed Vet care, love, and a safe place to lay my head at night. I really needed the last couple of weeks to rest and relax for my recuperation, and thanks to my “paw”some foster Mom, I’m now ready for my fur-ever home.   My surgery on my leg  has not hindered my ability to live and to LOVE. I love to play, eat, go on short leash walks, snuggles and ATTENTION. I’m learning house manners, if you get me out often, I do great.  

I get along great with other dogs or I could be your one and only. I’m learning to play with toys now and I’m really having some fun! Since losing that leg is new to me, I can do a step or two but no more than that.  Maybe in time I could do more, but that seems to be the only thing I have a problem with at this time. In fact, I get around just fine and am enjoying all the great things my new life has to offer. I think I’d do best in an Adult home, and one that’s going to love me and give me lots of attention.

I’m an easy-going, fluffy boy that will require regular grooming. Please keep that in mind if you’re thinking about adopting me. The regular schedule would be every 8 to 10 weeks with an approximate cost anywhere from  $60-$90 per visit or maybe even more. 

I am up-to-date with my vaccines, I have been neutered, had a recent dental, and am on heart worm and flea prevention along with being given a clean bill of health! Woohoo! Do you think I might be the guy for you? If so, please submit an application with VipRescue.org

Adoption Requirements: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt. To qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, be current on all vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care. If you’ve had more than one Vet in the past 3 years, please provide all the names and number for each vet. This breed typically lives 13-18 years, so please keep that lifespan in mind, as your age should be appropriate for the pets estimated lifespan.

All of us at VIP Rescue are Volunteers, with families, jobs and pets of our own, so please be kind and patient. We select the most fitting application for the dog, not necessarily the timeliest adoption application. Please make sure to read the entire bio on the pet you’re interested in before applying to adopt to make sure you meet the pets needs. Thank you for thinking rescue.
