I picked up a Lhasa mix last Thursday, he was not wanted where he was.
I have taught him to not growl and bite and to walk on a leash. Barking is 95% under control.
I have had him neutered, groomed and he has been to the vet a few times.
I need ideas on how to find the best home for him, he is welcome to stay here but I know there is a person out there who would love this dog.
I think my problem is I am picky about where he goes, I could wait and just keep spreading the word, what do you think, A

I'm thinking you should just keep him. You've got a lot invested in the animal now, and if the original owner didn't get him neutered by now, they may not be entirely grateful now.

He is 9 mo old, he is grateful,
he reminds me alot of a pekingese I found many years ago, best dog I ever had, the only problem is the need to run the streets last for a long time.
I have too many animals and it is not fair to anybody, there are only so many hours in one day, but like I said, only the best home for my Boomer, A

Most of the rescue leagues seem to use petfinder.org to advertise animals they have rescued and that are ready for adoption. Maybe it's an option for individuals as well???

Check into a breed specific rescue group as well. Some people will travel considerable distances to rescue particular breeds. Seems Lhaso's might be one of them. The breed rescue people are usually very thorough with their placement process.

One of my dogs did agility training with a trainer who also did Australian Shepherd rescue. They did follow-up for 24 months after placement, and retrieved dogs if things weren't working out to their standards. Tough, but good, those pet rescue folks.
