Sorry to have missed the Denver folks who were planning to come visit at the Golden Petco Expo. Between our schedules, pressing committments, inclement weather and gas prices, we were unable to attend. Hopefully, we’ll be able to connect with our dog families in the near future. Seeing the little ones with their new owners is apsolutely a joy!
Last week we had a new arrival. An owner surrender, he was relinquished for not getting along with the 19-month old baby in the house. In keeping with tradition, he was given a Tibetan name, “Tashi,” (Ta-shee) meaning prosperity or lucky. Tashi will undergo a complete rescue exam and a neuter Monday morning as we get him ready to put for adoption.
Tashi is a laid back little guy and has settled into his foster home like he’s always lived there. Almost without fail, our fosters move seamlessly from one home to the next. They live in the moment, accepting of whatever befalls them. Given love, attention and the structure of routine, they quickly adapt to their new surroundings.
Tashi, a white Apso with black mask, is three years old. He gets along well with other dogs and, despite never having seen or been around a cat, does fine with Michelle’s cat. Oddly enough, we find this true of the majority of our fosters. Apsos have often been described as being “cat like” in their temperament (aloof). Perhaps they connect on some deeper level at first meeting! While Tashi is not crazy about his crate, he is crate trained … and housetrained. Yes, that is not a misprint … he is housetrained. He also loves to play ball and will entertain himself with it even after he’s worn you out throwing it for him.
If you’d like more information on Tashi, please contact me at ApsoRescue@aol.com. He’s going to make someone a wonderful companion!
