  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Everyone welcome Oakleigh!! Oakleigh is a 5-month-old male Cairn Terrier mix that was dumped with his sister at a home in San Bernardino when they were just 10 weeks old. He is super shy at first, and probably was not handled much, if at all, before he was dumped. Surprisingly, once you pick him up he loves to cuddle and leans into you to feel safe. Oakleigh absolutely loves to play. He gets along great with all other dogs, is submissive, and not only loves to play with tennis balls, he instinctively retrieves them and drops them near you to toss for him - he was not taught to do this! He also plays with people once he feels comfortable around them and with toys too. He is a very sweet, happy little guy when he feels safe and secure but his bark can wake the dead when he is scared. His adopter should plan on socializing him continuously and taking him out in public to be exposed to new sights and sounds to desensitize him. He has not gotten the hang of walking on a leash just yet but shows promise and has excellent aim on the pee pads! Oakleigh is pee pad trained, fully vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, and will soon be neutered and ready for his forever home. If you are interested in meeting or adopting this sweet boy, please fill out an adoption application at lolr.org and we will be in touch!

Our Adoption Process...

Fill out an Adoption Application at https://www.lolr.org

We'll then have a brief conversation with you to determine your needs and preferences, find out about your daily schedule, and talk about your previous experience with pets.

If applicable, we'll call your veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for.

For renters, we'll check with your landlord to ensure that dogs are permitted and that the dog that you're adopting wouldn't violate any size or breed restrictions.

Lastly, we'll visit your home to see the environment where the dog will live and answer your questions. This is a great opportunity for you to get valuable input on how to integrate your new pet into your home.

Adoption fees are generally between $250-$400 depending on which pup you are adopting.
