6 year old • Female • 35 lbs
Leena is small and has black short fur. She easily gets confused for a puppy, given her small stature and joyful demeanor.
Leena is an energetic dog and likes to go on long walks, where she can explore lots of new things. She does not get startled easily or seem to be scared of anything, so she enjoys walks through the woods as well as busy Downtown. She enjoys car rides and is up for anything! She likes chew toys and balls and will throw them around and play with them on her own if you are busy.
When she is not playing, she likes to sleep on her dog bed or watch the street from the window, but will also happily cuddle with you any time. She is a very fun and loving dog! She is house- and crate-trained, although she does not like being left alone, so she would love another dog around to keep her company and to have someone to play with. She knows basic commands (sit, down) and is learning to be a bit more well mannered on the leash. Leena is a fast learner and will thrive quickly in an attentive and caring home. She would do best in a home with another dog and ideally a fenced yard (she LOVES to run and play!).
