12/20/18 FOSTER UPDATE: You know the old song, Pennies from Heaven”? Well after a few days with Lenny I think it could have been titled, “Lenny’s from Heaven” because he sure acts like an angel. It’s hard to believe he was kept outside because he’s so well-mannered. He hasn’t had a single accident and is trustworthy outside of a crate when left alone. He’s pretty laid back for a two-year-old but does enjoy a romp with my dog. If you have cats, not to worry as he’s completely indifferent to my two. He has also turned into quite the loving lap dog too.
Lenny is timid at times. Not so much frightened as uncertain. It’s like he’s asking, “are you sure it’s ok if I do that?” Poor pup just needs to learn that not every dog is kept outside on a chain. Lenny is truly a gentle soul who will be a great forever companion!
We are so relieved that Lenny’s owner surrendered him to the shelter that reached out to us for help. He was kept on a chain for the entire 1.5 years of his life. Compound that with fleas, ear infection, dermatitis, and numerous other treatable issues that have all been addressed. Neglect would be an understatement, and amazingly, he is the sweetest dog imaginable. How dogs have the capacity to be so kind and loving in spite of all this is nothing short of miraculous. Lenny truly deserves a very soft bed, good quality food for his undernourished 60-pound frame, and a tremendous amount of love.
