Guido Needs a Home – Let’s Give Him One!

It’s Pet finder’s Internet Day!

What does that mean? It means that Opie and I have pledged to tell at least one person about a pet that needs adopting!

We’ve decided to tell EVERYONE on the INTERNET about GUIDO!

You’ll want to adopt Guido when you hear his story. Guido is being taken care of by Lhasa Happy Home Rescue. Just a little background.

When we made the decision to adopt a dog, we looked on Petfinder.com. We knew if we went directly to a shelter we’d end up with a dog we loved, but that might be completely inappropriate for our family. I would happily have spent the rest of my life on allergy medication with the pup we fell in love with. However, that was not the right thing for us to do. It’s not the right thing for anyone to do. Find the pet that fits you and your family. If more people did this, I believe we’d have fewer dogs in shelters and in trouble if people used their heads just a little bit.

We found Opie on Petfinder.com , but he was being taken care of by Lhasa Happy Home Rescue. Guido is one of Lhasa’s dogs.

Here is a cut and paste of his story form Llasa and some adorable pictures.

THIS IS GUIDO….and a luckier boy you will not find.  This handsome, 17 lb, white, 3.5 yr old, Lhasa Apso was dropped off at the vet to be euthanized because his owner just didn’t want him anymore.  No reason given, she just didn’t want him.  His guardian angel, Tori, saw him and said, $#@? 

She took him home and said to this almost perfect boy, “we’ll find you a home” and she called Lhasa Happy Homes!  We’ll never be able to understand his human’s mindset…but we are grateful to Tori for saving Guido’s life.  Tori reports that this boy is a stud!  He is a lhasa with long legs, but a purebred who did come from a pet store in Westminister originally (birthday March 3, 2007). 

He understands “sit, let’s go, come, go potty and high 5!” 

He is good with older kids, dogs, cats, men, women…you name it!  He is a dog for all seasons!  He loves to ride in the car and is a perfect gentleman; does need some leash training, but does love his walks!  He doesn’t like crates, but is fine when he is getting groomed.  He loves toys…and is a little hard on them — so please have plenty back-ups ready!  He isn’t a barker, but will whine if he is left alone….still probably suffering from being abandoned….but likely will get over this.  He would love to be in a home with another dog…or a cat….he LOVES cats…and will give you kisses to show you how much he appreciates your caring for him after he knows you better….oh yeah, and he will sleep at the foot of your bed and move the toys off to make his comfy place!  He is a very loving dog who just wants to be back in a forever home where he can cuddle and love you …and let you know he truly wants to be your very best buddy!  

 If you love the breed, you’ll love Guido!

If you are interested in adopting this dog from Lhasa Happy Homes, please complete the Adoption Application on our home page and submit before calling. We will contact you once it has been reviewed

    Guido is such an adorable boy! Why is it that his humans can do such a thing to such a lovable “thing”? How can they just send him to be euthanized just because they don’t want him anymore? Can their children do that to them one day when they do not want them anymore? $#@?

    Hope Guido finds a forever home and gets lots of love.

  • Opie and Opie's Mom

    You guys make a great point. I don’t know what goes through these peoples heads. Actually, maybe it’s a problem of heart. Their hearts are very, very small. It’s too bad that dogs like Guido have to pay for it. I imagine that they are not so great with humans either. Anyone that mean — well, it shows!

  • According to Gus

    Guido is so very cute…are you sure Opie doesn’t need a brother? 😉

    Our hearts go out to all the doggers that need homes and we’re hoping that all of these great posts will speed up the process.

    Kudos to Opie for sharing his blog for sweet, Guido.

  • Opie and Opie's Mom

    I’ve thought about it, but Opie’s Daddy is satisfied an happy with his “dawgins”. Then there’s the sibling rivalry issue. I have enough of that on the human level, I don’t know if I could take it on the doggy level.
