Milford Women Gives Up Dogs




Volunteers Betty Steele, Hartwick, left, and Arlene Nygren, Goodyear Lake, top photo, discuss how to handle a cage full of Lhasa Apsos, among 52 surrendered this morning by a Milford resident.  The dogs arrived shortly after 11 a.m. at the Susquehanna Animal Shelter in Hartwick Seminary, where they are being processed, and will then be washed and given shots.  At right, Bob Wood of Oneonta carries one of the dogs to the examination tabled, where Vet Tech Sara Haddad of Bainbridge was checking them out and registering them.  Shelter Executive Director Stacie Haynes said this is the largest single rescue in the shelter’s history.   The dogs, some inbred, were not abused, but were being treated for fleas, skin problems, “cherry eyes” and other ailments.   Since the animals were given up voluntarily, Haynes said she doesn’t expect any charges will be filed.   (Jim Kevlin/

    I own a Lhasa Apso they are the most loving, personable loving adorable easily trained a little stubborn a little bold dog I have ever come across. I wish I could adopt but so far away. Please adopt people he is the love of my life. I would take them all if I could or maybe just 2!!

    I think that they were pretty well cared for considering there are so many. Their fur doesn’t look matted and there faces and eyes are not covered with fur. I’ve seen a whole lot worse. These types of dogs need their faces trimmed every few weeks! I applaud the person for surrendering them when it seemed too much to handle. Thank you, I pray each and every one of them find a good home. They are wonderful dogs.

    I would like an Llasa Apso. I’m a previous owner. My precious Ginger passed 3yrs ago. I love this breed. They are the best. I am out of state. Are out of state families considered?

    My name is Julie Luther, and I am the Corresponding Secretary representing the Merrimack Lhasa Apso Club in New England. We would like to help somehow. What are your needs for these rescued Lhasas at this time? We strongly suggest that anyone adopting one of these dogs reach out to us or The American Lhasa Apso Club (online), with any questions about health, temperament or grooming.
    Please let us know how we can help. Thank you
