Adopt-a-Pet: Jack the Lhasa-poo [Updated]
Breed: Lhasa Apso/poodle mix
Age: Approximately 1 year
Weight: 12 pounds
About Jack: "He walks great on a leash, is calm, quiet, affectionate and very polite," shelter volunteer and Animal Match Rescue Team Inc. founder Laura Beth Heisen says. "Pick him up and he melts in your arms. He is very playful, yet he knows when to tone it down, so he is always a joy to be around."
For more information: Meet Jack in person at the South L.A. shelter, 3612 11th Ave., or call (888) 4LAPET1 with his ID number to learn more.
[Update 11/9: Jack has been adopted! Congratulations, Jack!]
