Casey's Story As Told By Casey

Hi, everybody!!! My name’s Casey and I was rescued and adopted about 2 years ago when I was just a 10-11 month old baby. Would you believe someone didn’t want ME? Hard to believe – I know. My family dumped me - who knows where - and the people from the shelter picked me up.Casey, how could someone dump this cute little guy?The shelter held me for a few days but my time was running out. It was really crowded and there was no room for a little Lhasa like me. You know what happens to dogs like me in overcrowded shelters, don’t you?

Somehow a miracle happened and the folks from Lhasa Apso Rescue found out about me at the shelter. They even came by to check me out. I was in a cage when I heard one say to the other, "Let’s keep an eye on this one.” After they left it seemed like forever went by. I was getting more and more scared. Then the day came. My time was up at the shelter. Tick-tock. I kept wondering where those rescue people were. I thought they were going to keep an eye on me. Did they forget me? I kept looking up at the clock. Then, guess what? YEAH – there came one of those rescue people right through the front door and got me out of that place in the nick of time!! That’s what I call a rescue!!

Casey, isn't he adorable?I was still scared and didn’t know what was to come of me after being rescued, but I knew I was with Lhasa Apso people because they were really kind to me. They said I was messy and dirty but that I was really cute and nice. I could have told them that.

After I got all cleaned up and saw the vet, the rescue lady took me to my new home. Boy, did I luck out. I got into a great forever home with other dogs my size and even cats. Best part about it is that I never have to leave. Mom Nancy will never let me go. Good thing. I love it here.

Mom Nancy always has projects for me now. It was getting a little slow around the house and I could see that mom was thinking up some stuff for me to do. First I went to obedience class then I liked it so much I took some advanced classes. I even got my Canine Good Citizen certificate on my first try. I did my therapy dog test, too. It’s a cinch when you’re smart like me. Then it happened…

Casey, the celebrity!My brother and I suddenly found ourselves up on stage in a local production of "Annie” – you know, the Broadway musical starring dogs and I think a curly headed little girl had a part, too. That did it! I was bitten by the show business bug, especially after the good reviews. Since then I’ve been to other auditions and a modeling agency. Producers always think I’m photogenic. No kidding. My mom’s got a real portfolio on me now. I’m trying to get into some magazine ads, but my dream is to have my own TV show someday. It’s just a dream for now but so what! Who would have ever thought I would get this far? I did pretty good for a little rescue that nobody wanted, don’t ya think?

Casey is one of the few lucky ones, more often that not healthy dogs are euthanized for lack of homes.If you ever get a chance to adopt a rescue dog, please do it. We all come from tough situations and we need a place to live with nice people. And when you do get a dog, please love him. We’re all special and it’s up to you to bring out the best in your dog. Maybe you won’t be lucky enough to get ME, but you might get a dog just as cute. We’re all Lhasas, you know! I can sure recommend Lhasa Apso Rescue to help you out with a nice companion. Just give them a call or write them an email. They were there for me when I needed them and they are here for you. Good Luck.
