Meet Lenny! This sweet man has honey eyes and a heart of gold. Lenny’s early life lacked socialization and he is still learning that people aren’t so scary.
Lenny is seeking a patient and understanding guardian who will provide him with a safe and loving environment. Lenny is an intelligent boy who is eager to please! Lenny is an active boy who loves to run and play fetch. He is still working on his leash manners and reactivity to traffic but would make an excellent hiking companion.
Lenny is curious about other dogs but needs to work on his social manners. Lenny is best suited in a home without other animals, where he can be spoiled and have a couch or bed to himself. Lenny is a loving and protective companion who is waiting for the right family to welcome him into their lives.
Adoption counselling with staff and multiple visits will be required. If you are interested in welcoming Lenny into your home and heart, please submit an application online or contact the shelter at 250-493-0136 for further information.
