About Lenny

Distance: 212 Miles
UPDATE 7/4/2020 Precious Lenny arrived on 6/24/2020—owner surrendered because they have too many dogs.  He is an 8-month-old Heeler/JRT (mix) and he weighs @40 pounds.  (His birthday is 10/22/19.)  He wears a cute red and white coat and his big brown eyes, circled in black, will melt your heart.   Right now, Lenny is shy and worried because he is a smart, careful dog.  It is understandable that he is concerned that everything and everyone he has ever known, has suddenly disappeared from his life, and he seems to be assessing everything new to determine if it is dangerous or not.  Sigrid says:  “Lenny is trying to come to trust people but is still unsure.  Because of his nervousness, he likely would not thrive well in a chaotic household with lots of children or visitors.  The person who surrendered him said he is not good with cats.  Lenny would likely do best in a calm environment with experienced dog lovers who are very patient.” In the past couple of weeks, he has developed a friendship with Fonda and she took these photos of him.  Fonda says:  “He turned to mush when I sat in his room with him and took his photos.  He even pawed at me so I would not stop petting him.  He is very handsome.”  He is also growing to trust Renee and Scott (they feed him) and is affectionate with them too.  Lenny will do best in a calm household with adults who give him the time necessary for him to trust them.  He needs a person very savvy about fear issues who knows how to work patently to gain his trust.
