George: Lhasa Apso

George has been REHOMED.

After years of neglect, George likes to take things slowly and quietly and take in the sights at his pace. He loves a quiet relaxed cuddle and to potter about the garden, taking his time to sniff and investigate, when he is done, he will happily retire to his bed and watch the world go by, he is a lovely calm little fellow. Used to dogs in his previous existence, George has been mixing with dogs of all ages and sizes in his foster home with no problems at all. He also ignores the dog savvy cat and the chickens and rabbit he is in foster with. He will approach new people for a stroke after a quiet introduction and will then he goes back to his bed for a snooze.

George has started on his basic training, helped by his love of food which makes him ideal for training, he has been out for short walks on a lead but is still nervous about this new noisy world, so patience will be required to help him progress. He is clean in his bed but needs reminding to go outside, but he is improving daily with his housetraining. He is quiet at night, except for his snoring!, and travels fine in a car. George has had his coat clipped short due to matting, but is is happy to be groomed for short periods while it grows back.

George would love a quiet home, either with another confident dog or on his own. He is happy being left for short periods and is crate trained, though he is fine being left in his comfy bed. As George would prefer a quiet life, school age children who visit and understand to be gentle would be fine.

Please note that this breed does require regular grooming, so make sure you take these costs into consideration before submitting an application.

George is 6 years old, neutered, vaccinated, chipped and worm & flea treated, and is currently being fostered in near Folkestone in Kent.
