Pin It

Lenny2Adoptable dog’s name: Lenny

Location (city, state) of adoptable pet: Hopewell Junction, NY

Age of adoptable dog: 2 years old

Breed: Lab mix

What makes this dog special: Lenny was the last of his “siblings” at a high kill shelter in NC. He was heartworm positive and only had hours to live. He spent 2 months in foster care in NC while his heartworms were being treated, then came to NY to await his fur-ever home. December 20th, he will be in foster for 8 months. He has had only one inquiry. He is a special boy who just needs a forever home. He’s a beautiful sleek, shiny and loving boy that would make a great companion to any family.

What kind of household would be best for this dog?: Lenny would love a home with children! He doesn’t have issues with other dogs but is so playful at first meeting we feel he may do best with a female dog. Sometimes other dogs aren’t happy with his playfulness.

Special recommendations, restrictions for adoption of this dog: None
