Sweet, shy and a total lovebug—that’s Lenny for you! This pup is truly an old soul. The big city is way too much for this sensitive boy, so Lenny would thrive with a patient and understanding adopter who enjoys the quiet things in life and can take things slow with him! Could that be you?
Big fan of: Belly rubs! Once Lenny feels comfortable around you this guy rolls over onto this back and sticks his feet way up in the air, just begging for tummy rubs! Not only that, but Lenny sometimes even sticks his little tongue out while doing so. When he isn’t busy getting plenty of pets, there’s only one place Lenny likes to be—in your lap! This pup is the definition of snuggle bug and loves curling up with his human friends, especially if it means getting lots of gentle scratches in the oh-so-sweet spots around the face and neck. But, don’t let the cuddly side fool you—Lenny is still young and spry and loves indulging in playtime! A game where he can chase after treats or plush toys is always welcome—especially if there are other dogs involved! Lenny really comes out of his shell and shows his true colors when he’s around friends who speak his language.
Working on: His confidence! Lenny is a southern gentleman through and through, so he’s pretty nervous of the hustle and bustle of New York City. Fast movements and loud sounds—both outside on the street and from people indoors—are scary for this pup, and he makes it clear through his body language. When he feels comfortable, Lenny sometimes gets a little too excited and uses his mouth to get attention. He would blossom with obedience training to help boost his confidence and show his enthusiasm in more appropriate ways.
Dream home: Lenny is a sensitive guy, so he’s looking for a patient adopter who has a quiet home and backyard outside the city and understands that this pup will need to take things at his own pace. Lenny can sometimes be a little too much for small kids because of his mouthy behavior, however he has been reported to enjoy their company and generally do well with them. When it comes to furry siblings, sign Lenny up! He’s previously lived well with cats and would greatly benefit from living with another dog. If you think this sweet boy might be a good match for you, come meet him today!
