Facts about Leroy

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
A little over a year ago, a litter of puppies were found living with their parents in a field. The mom was a petite Beagle/Shepherd mix and dad was a handsome Chinese Shar Pei mix! A rescuer was able to catch and bring all the pups, plus dad into safety, while mom was too scared to be caught. Months later, the same person found another puppy in the same spot who ended up being a littermate to the puppies she found earlier! That was Leroy. Leroy is Mr. Adventurer. While all his littermates were placed in loving homes once they were fully vetted, Leroy wasn't quite as easy. He had never been around people before, but was desperate for love. The rescuer worked with Leroy for 6 months, showing him how to love, be loved, and most importantly, how to "dog"! He isn't a fan of loud noises, and takes time to adjust to new people and places. Once he knows you, you're best friends! He would do best in a lower energy household, without young kids. He loves the company of other dogs, as they have helped teach him how to be a dog. Because of this, Leroy requires another pup in his forever home. He's met both cats and birds as well! He doesn't mind the cats, and is very watchful of the birds, curious as to what they are! Leroy has been working on continued training, desensitizing, and socialization in his foster home, and would benefit from a forever home who will keep up with his training. Leroy does require a physical above ground fenced in yard to keep him safe. While Leroy isn't much of a cuddler, he's always by his people's side, listening for his next set of directions; he aims to please! If you think you can handle staring at his cute face with his tiny little ears for the rest of his life, apply online today to make Leroy a part of your family!

To adopt this pet, please visit

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.

For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application here: - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home.

An application does not obligate you to adopt, and can be transferred to any pet. You will receive an automated confirmation once your application is successfully submitted. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the dog you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call ASAP. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please email your confirmation number to

We are a foster based rescue and do not have a shelter location where dogs can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page at for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a dog in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal. Please note that we do not perform same-day adoptions.

Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
