The name Leroy is of French origin, and it means the king. Awesome boy Leroy is hoping to find his forever kingdom soon! We rescued this tripaw from San Bernardino County, and he is a very special boy indeed. Instead of a fourth leg, Leroy has a little nubbin for his front right limb. We think he’s had this little nubbin since birth, and believe us when we say it doesn’t slow him down any! What he may lack in a full limb, he more than makes up for in his dashing good looks and charm. Leroy is an amazingly sweet boy with a wonderful personality to boot. He is a friend to all people young and old, and other dogs big and small. In fact, Leroy was immediately promoted to the ranks of front office greeter upon his arrival at TBL owing to his friendly and outgoing personality. He spent his days in the hustle and bustle of the office, greeting people with a wag of his tail, hopping around after volunteers like a happy shadow, or resting his head on laps or feet whenever he catches anyone sitting. Leroy joined a few volunteers on an outing to a dog-friendly restaurant, and he was a good boy and stole the hearts of all restaurant staff. Most recently, Leroy is enjoying the comfortable foster life in Del Mar and has been an absolute rock star! His foster parents, along with the rest of us at TBL, have no idea how he hasn’t been snatched up yet. Leroy is very lovable, affectionate, cuddly, mellow, easygoing, and completely housebroken. He transitioned perfectly into a home environment, and has still yet to have a single accident in the house. Leroy gets along swimmingly with his foster brother who happens to be a TBL alum, and the two like to hobble around the house side by side, play tug-of-war with toys, and are beyond adorable when they snuggle together on the couch (see photo). This unique and dashing boy is fully matured at just over 4 years of age (as of 2017), and weighs around 45 pounds. One look into Leroy’s handsome face and stunning light grey eyes and he’ll win you over!
