On your left is B.J., a 9-month-old Lhasa Apso we are fostering. He came to us after being rescued from a dog warden in one of the outlying counties, and he is a bit under the weather after being neutered late last week.
We have taken to calling him "Tanka," which is a name with Tibetan religious and artistic connotations, given his heritage. Tanka has a good disposition, but is a bit skittish at times. He is very affectionate, and loves to run around the yard.
I suspect that he has spent a lot of time in crates, of which we are not fans. He was infested with fleas when picked up, but I think the vet has worked wonders in ridding him of his parasitic irritants.
For those of you thinking about getting a dog, please consider adopting a rescue pooch. Every resuce dog we have taken in has been housebroken, good-tempered, and loveable. For more information on adopting rescue dogs, see The Toledo Area Humane Society, Planned Pethood, or Petfinder.com.
