Meet Bubbles …

This is a courtesy posting … please contact the owner directly at the phone/email provided below:

NOTE: THIS DOG IS LOCATED IN ELIZABETH, CO, EAST OF CASTLE ROCK.

“Bubbles” is a nine-year old spayed female, vaccinations up to date. She needs a quiet home with a patient and confident person. In the past, she has been a one-person dog. Gets along with other animals okay; would not trust with children. In addition to being housetrained, she is trained to potty pads in the house.

Needs someone who is familiar with the breed and willing to give her time to adjust to a new home. Her owner just went into dementia care so she has seen a lot of changes lately.

As a double-coated breed with hair, Bubbles will need regular grooming (every six to eight weeks at $35 to $50) so this expense will need to be taken into consideration by the adoptive family.

An adoption interview/application is required and there is an adoption fee ($150).

Paws on the Promenade 2015

Sammy & Budha, waiting for breakfast ...
Sammy & Budha, waiting for breakfast …

Update:  Sammy and Budha were adopted this past weekend (June 20th).  Wishing them and their new owner many happy, healthy years together.  And we are just thrilled that the new owner decided to take them both … dogs are pretty darned happy too!

Always a good time to interact with the dog community … Paws on the Promenade at the Shops at Centerra!  Come on out and join the fun on Saturday, May 16th with a variety of events as noted below.  We’ll be there with our foster Tzus, Sammy (l) and Budha (r), for a meet/greet.  Hopefully, the weather will be better by Saturday … anything but pouring rain or blowing snow!

Sammy is a five-year old Tzu that would love to find a retired or semi-retired couple on which to work his charms.  He’s a cuddle bug and gets along well with other small dogs.

Budha is a two-year old Tzu, originally from Wyoming.  We think he looks like Toothless from “How to Train Your Dragon.” A sweet boy, he’d do well with with an active couple and gets along with other small dogs.

Update:  Gracie has found her new family and was adopted!!

Calling folks in the Midwest … or someone willing to travel/fly!  Gracie is a retired champion looking for a home to call her own.  Some things prospective adoptive families should know:

  • Is a heavy chewer and will need plenty of good chews;
  • Loves attention, to the point of pushing out other dogs for attention (this is a training issue, under resource guarding);
  • Needs a fenced yard to run and play (no invisible fencing allowed);
  • Is crate trained;
  • Needs a home with someone home most of the time or working less than 40 hours a week;
  • Needs to be an only dog or with only one other dog in the house; and
  • An experienced dog owner, someone with no young children.

Please see the flyer for contact more info; an application process is required.  If interested, please contact: jen@sunriselhasaapsos.com.

From the Frozen Hinterland …

… comes a warm and loving heart all wrapped up in a happy boy by the name of Toby!

Toby
Toby

So here’s the deal … Toby is located in Minnesota, around the Twin Cities area.  The local specialty club up there —  Twin Cities Lhasa Apso Club  (TCLAC) — was approached by a vet clinic to take him on when his family couldn’t cover treatment costs for a fractured leg.  The club found a foster home, paid for his extensive treatment and now he’s ready to find a new family.

Toby is a three-year old neutered male, weighing 14-15 pounds.  More information about Toby can be found at this link:  http://www.twincitieslhasaapsoclub.org/#!adoption.  I was told by one of the club members that he’s a great little dog with no negatives … and that if she didn’t have a houseful of dogs, she’d keep him.  That’s saying quite a lot, folks!

If you have questions about Toby, the adoption process or anything else, TCLAC can be contacted at:  TCLAC2@gmail.com.  I suspect they’ll want to keep his adoption fairly “local” so keep that in mind if you’re not in the area by a 300-mile radius.

Let’s help Toby find his forever home to start out the New Year!

For the Apso Afficionado …

… there’s nothing cuter than a passel of puppies!!  And these are about as cute as they come.  Please meet the newest little Canadians (l to r):  Harvey, Vinny, Gossip, Scandal and Flirt.

Show Time!!

Tibetan Apsos at Show …

This is unabashedly a repeat of last year’s post (and the year before, et al )  … the same information holds true for 2013!

Once again, we’re gearing up for the largest dog show in Colorado … The Rocky Mountain Cluster to be held February 15-18 in the Hall of Education at the National Western Complex, 4655 Humboldt in Denver. The Premium List, which contains information on the show, parking, maps and entry, can be found here … Premium List.  The actual times for judging and the ring numbers are not disseminated until just a week before the show; we’ll post a link to the judging program when available.  If you’re thinking of attending, please be sure to give yourself plenty of time for parking, getting into the facility, and then finding the right ring and some chairs (rings are marked by numbers on tall poles).

Parking, depending on where one finds an open lot, can run anywhere from $5 to $10 — and it may also be a very long walk!  Entry fee to the Expo Hall is $5.  Please note that dogs not entered in the show are not allowed on the site.  If considering crowds/parking, Friday or Monday would probably be the better of the four days to attend.   As the largest show in the region, the selection of vendors and their wares is pretty amazing … if it’s dog related, you’ll find it at this show!  From art prints, to clothing, to grooming supplies, to dog beds, to canine-related jewelry, to crates and tables, it will be available.  Might want to bring the plastic along (and keep in mind that the vendors start packing up on Monday for the return home).

Besides the conformation competition, one can also find other venues such as Rally, Obedience, and Agility. These are generally held in the Events Center which fronts 47th Street; Rally is held on the 3rd floor of the main building.  Hope to see you there … it’s a great reason to come out and support the breed!  If you need more information, please feel free to contact me at:  ApsoRescue@aol.com.
