To meet any of our dogs you must first complete our online adoption application on our website. For more information and the adoption application for Leah, please visit our website below
Leah is likely a GSD/Collie mix, but is definitely as soft & fluffy as all get-out and a lover of people. She prefers to be with her people as much as possible and is a very loyal companion, but does fine in the house when left alone. She gets along with other large dogs and is great with kids, although she doesn't like them taking things out of her mouth, so older kids would be best. She has been working with a trainer on learning 'drop it,' 'leave it,' and 'give it' and is doing very well. If her adopters continue this work, they won't have any issues! If you have large dog experience and are looking for an obedience trained girl who walks well on a leash, is potty trained, great in the house, knows how to use a doggy door, gets out of the way of a Roomba and gets in line for treats, Leah is your girl!
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
