ADOPTED ON 05-26-15 – Shiloh is a 5 year old, 10 lb. Black Lhasa Apso. He came to us in terrible condition. His story goes something like this….he and his sister Coco were dumped by their former owner with two children one summer, at the grandfather’s house. Leaving the grandfather to take care of dogs and children he was unplanned for. He was left under a car port in a small crate with no heat even when it was 25 degrees. He was soaked in urine when we rescued him. We are very certain that he had very limited interaction with humans. Despite coming from these deplorable condition, he is learning very quickly that humans can be trusted.

This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794 for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.

RESCUE IS THE SOLUTION, NOT THE PROBLEM 

Shiloh is a spunky little guy with a lust for life. He enjoys playing with smaller dogs, although like many small dogs, he can be a little bossy when he becomes excited. He barks at his foster mother’s larger dogs who weighs about 60lbs but that could be related to the dog rather than the behavior. He did very well with his foster mother’s grandchildren ages 6-7. He did not mind them walking him on leash or their constant playing. He is working very hard on his housetraining and has made amazing strides in only 2 weeks, and his accidents are decreasing.  He will willingly go into his crate if you open the door. He is used to eating and sleeping in there. He rides quietly in the car while in his crate. He did not like the leash at first, but has now become acclimated.

Shiloh’s only known fear is being cornered, he does not like if someone tries to reach in his crate and take him out. This may be an effect from the way he was treated previously. However, if you call him and ask him to come out he will happily bound out to you. He is a little apprehensive of meeting new males at first, but once he has realized he can trust you he warms up quickly. This will get better the more he will a loving stable family. He is a rather high energy little fella however, since he is smaller, he will not have quite the exercise requirements of a larger dog with his energy level. He is always in the middle of whatever is going on, follows his foster mom around, but when left alone with the other small dogs, he enjoys playing with them. He is a beautiful, happy little fella.

Shiloh is ten pounds, but has a moderate energy level. His ideal home would be an active family, who could help him be stimulated both mentally and physically. After he has adjusted to his new forever family, it would be wonderful for him to go to class, as well as help him be exposed to different dogs and people in a positive manner. He seems to be very comfortable around children, and it would be nice if his new home would include children to play with.  It is recommended that these children be 7 or over.  He came from an awful place, but is learning every day what a real life can be like. Can you picture yourself with a little black puff ball who loves to run and play, but is equally willing to be picked up for scratch behind the ear and some hugs? Please fill out an application if this sounds like the right match for you.

  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  • Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG
