Thank you for your response to Chewey. She is a great girl and I'm looking for a great home for her. She is currently being fostered in Ponce De Leon, FL but I am flexible about shipping. She is a rescue Lhasa. I will get pictures of her and send them to you this evening. We are asking $150.00 for her adoption to help cover the expense of her rescue. If you are still interested, please let me know. She is white with light brown markings on her neck and back. She weighs about 10-12 pounds. She is housebroken, but is sure to make mistakes in her new home, until she adjusts. Your family sounds nice, your children are about the age of my children and Chewey loved being the center of attention. She is truly a lap dog and enjoys snuggle time.

Thank you again,

hello, i love the pics and my son like it as well. i am okay with the asking price $150 but i will offer $180 for the pet as the amount added will serve as the feeding fee till the arrival of my shipping company , as i have told you ealier that i have a shipping company that are capable in shipping pets across the coast and they assure safe delivery of the pet more so the payment will bear the cost of the pet plus the shipping cost which means that the payment will come in an excess. you can as well contact the shipping company at , and they made me know that the pet will be picked up right at your door step so you dont have to stress your self about the shipping. so if you are okay with this kindly forward me with this information , name to issue the check,your address to se

nd the check to and your phone number . i await yor response.
