Leif is a special needs beagle boy. Leif has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition called mega esophagus. He requires special medication twice a day before feedings, his food needs to be elevated while he eats and his food need to be liquified as well. So far this has seemed to mange his symptoms but there is a possibility of future medical needs and expenses in his future. His adopter needs to be aware that his condition is lifelong and needs to prepared to provide the necessary vet care he will need for the rest of his life.
Leif came to us as an unclaimed stray and significantly underweight. He loves food, though, so his foster family is He is a shy sweet boy that is learning what it is to be in a home and be loved. He loves warm blankets and soft laps. He will roll over for a good belly rub. As with all beagles, he needs to be supervised while outside because he will try to escape the yard if left alone. He is doing great with his foster brothers and sisters in his home. He loves kids and lights up when they walk into the room.
Leif is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He is current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative.
