Leila's Story...
Name: Leila
Breed: Lab/Aussie type mix
Age: Mature Adult
Gender: Female

Leila is a mature adult female Lab/Aussie type mix, about 35 pounds and was sitting so quietly and forlornly in her kennel at the pound that she almost got missed.... almost. Luckily a volunteer who works with us discovered this gem who was too polite to be at the front of her kennel making a fuss and brought her to safety. Leila is a very mellow, affectionate, lovable girl who does well with other dogs and equally as well on her own. She enjoys the visiting kids, and walks well on the leash. She is house trained and crate trained, so quiet in the crate and so grateful for a bed of her own. She looks to have lived a hard life, has some scars from living on cement before and was so neglected her hair was falling out... but she is looking much better now with basic care and love. Although an older girl, she has plenty of years and heart left to love someone with everything she has stored up for so many years.

Requirements: No special requirements

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leila, a Minneapolis Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
