Laverne is an adorable purebred Lhasa Apso, who lived her life being used as a breeder dog. Excuse her terrible haircut, she was ‘groomed’ before she retired and made her way to Lucky Chance Rescue. She has proven to be a very loving, sweet girl, although is somewhat timid when meeting new people. She has not been socialized with humans so it takes a little while for her to understand that people are loving and kind and want to snuggle her.  She gets along great with all the dogs in her foster home. She really good about going outside to go potty and comes back to the door when she’s finished. She is not leash trained, she just lies flat when her foster mom tries to take her for a walk. She will learn over time, but needs patience, and a fenced yard to keep her safe. She deserves the best life with someone who will give her lots of love and time to feel secure. Having another dog in the house would be perfect for her so she can learn to ‘dog’ from a 4 legged sibling.  If you have a huge heart and patience for this sweet girl, please apply to adopt her and give her the home she has been longing for.  We adopt within 60 miles of St. Louis & St. Charles County, Missouri.
