We can’t stress enough how great this American Bull dog mix is!! Leah is about 5 years old, but don’t let her age fool you; she is a sporty girl and will do best with an active family who can keep her well exercised. Although she likes to go for runs and hikes, her favorite activity is Frisbee. She is so good that we’ve contemplated in entering her in for a tournament! Initially, Leah will prefer to be the only dog in the house, but a dog friend in the future is not out of the question just yet. She’s slowly making new dog friends here at our shelter. Leah loves all people of different ages, young and old. She will make a great dog nanny for a family!! Come by to meet her!
The SPCA of Westchester works hard to find permanent homes for our adoptable dogs. Families interested in dogs listed as “Special Adoptions” will work with our trainer to insure that the adoption is the correct placement for that dog. During this time, the dog’s bio will still appear on PetFinder, marked “Adoption Pending”. If another family is interested in that dog, they can fill out an adoption application and leave it for the trainer. In the event that the adoption does not work out, the next application received will be considered as the next potential candidate. The trainer will only work with one family at a time that she deems is a valid candidate for that adoption. Thank you for your understanding.

Also note, even if approved to adopt from us, if you have a dog(s) at home they MUST meet the dog(s) you are interested in adopting from here to ensure they get along before you can officially adopt. All Dogs and puppies are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated (age appropriate) and come with a free 7 day Veterinarian check from a participating Vet!
