I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
he Amazing Lenny
He would be considered “special needs” to some, but frankly Lenny is a great asset to any family that admires a Little dog with lots of personality. Lenny was completely neglected and somehow wound up in a local shelter. Yes!!! Hard to believe a Shih Tzu in a Shelter. He was taken into foster where it was discovered he was deaf and had limited vision. His foster family did not let him feel sorry for himself. They included him as part of their normal routine and integrated him with their pack of 4 dogs and the occasional Foster passing thru. He does well with children, big dogs, little dogs and we suspect he would do just fine with cats…or any species for that matter. He is a low key kind of guy…except when he’s hungry…..then he is referred to as “Hangry Lenny”. He is quite vocal when he feels its feeding time. He maps out any environment he ventures into and figures out where he is rather quickly. For a dog like Lenny, 4th of July is a breeze, he doesn’t bark when the doorbell rings and just loves to sit and watch tv with the family. He does piddle on occasion so we have introduced him to belly bands and knows the changing of the guard (or pads so to speak). He loves evening walks in the moonlight with his people & settles in for bed afterwards.
You see “special needs” is really just the Need for a Special Family to see how AMAZING he truly is.
