Lhasa Apso
Terrier, Mix

An adotable dog in Philadelphia, PA

  • Young
  • Small
  • Male

Elf is a perky little dude with tons of personality. He hasn't had anyone tell him how to behave properly but he's trying his best to please. He would benefit from basic obedience training to help him be the best pet he can be. Elf is allergic to fleas, and somewhere along the line he must have been bitten - his fur needs some time to recover from the experience. Elf could live with other dogs and children over 8, but we don't know about cats yet. Name: Elf Breed: Lhasa Apso/Terrier mix (Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label) Age: 1-2 years old Weight: 13 pounds Reason for surrender to shelter: Elf was found as a stray. If you are interested in meeting Elf, please email [email protected] for an application. If you have questions, please email the above address or contact our adoption staff member at 215-298-9680, ext. 16. Animal ID#A21347116 (Posted on 10/29/13 by lo'b)
