We adopted Stryker on October 28th, 2008. Oops sorry, HE adopted US! When we arrived, the once shy pup who stayed away from the potential adopters, ran up to my husband immediately. We were told he never reacedt to a visitor like that and we were done. That our dog had found us. Stryker is a tibetan terrier/lhasa apso mix according to his papers. But some think there is shih tzu in there too. Whatever the mix, we couldn't ask for a better companion....he has been a complete JOY (his given name) and we just love him more and more every day!
