Facts about Lenny

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Lenny is only about a year old, so he is just a big happy, friendly, stupid puppy. Lenny gets along with every single person and dog. He lives with a 10 year old and he loves her, but he isn’t always aware of how big he is so he’s working on his manners. He is being fostered with two other male dogs and he gets along great with both of them, and all the neighbor’s dogs too!

Lenny hasn’t had much consistency in his short life so his foster home is working very hard on his house manners. He’s adjusting well to being crated, he does cry for a few minutes (worth a try right?) but then quiets down for the rest of the night. He knows that the command “go to bed” means: go in your crate. He also knows sit, down, and come.

When we asked his foster mom to give us some words to describe Lenny she said: Adorable, Squishy, Tank, Dopey, Sorry, Clumsy, Snugglebug. Most of these are self explanatory. She also said he is is a little goofy and is very easy going. He will roll over and show you his belly and let you pet him and handle him anywhere. Nothing bothers him.

His foster mom thinks he would do best in a semi-active home. He likes to run and play, but when he’s done...that’s it, he plops down and there is no moving him. He loves to play with his doggy foster siblings. Lenny also likes to rip the fuzz off tennis balls, and to disembowel stuffed toys.

Lenny is a class A snuggler. Once he is tired from playing Lenny becomes a big couch potato. He thinks he is small enough to sit on your lap, and loves to crawl up next to people while they are napping. He sleeps in his crate at night while he is polishing his house training, but eventually he would probably love to sleep in bed with someone, if you’re into that.

Lenny is an ideal dog looking for someone who is looking for a dog that is friendly and social with everyone and every dog. Have we said enough that Lenny is the nicest, friendliest, most social dog ever. The trade off is that his foster mom says he maybe isn’t the brightest bulb on the tree so it takes him a little extra time to catch on to new things.

About Lulu's Locker Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve.

We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Our Adoption Process...

We encourage potential adopters to ask friends, family, and Lulu’s Locker about companion animal experiences in their lives. We want to ensure the animal we adopt to you fits well in your home environment. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about long-term animal care prior to adopting! Please contact us via email or phone 708-325-8581.

Everything we do is for the animals in our care, and is aimed at giving them the best possible chance of finding a permanent home.

- Fill out this online Adoption Application to get the process rolling! Copy and paste this URL into your browser -->

- Once your Application is completed, you will have a phone conversation with an adoption counselor.

- Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask your counselor any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.

- You and all members of your household will then be invited to visit the foster home or boarding facility where the animal is currently living. If you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (dogs only).

- Animals are subject to a home visit prior to completion of the adoption process.

- You will ALWAYS have continued support from Lulu’s Locker after your adoption! We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns!
