Meet Lenny!! This cuddly pittie is about 6-7 years old (although one vet estimated his age at 4 years) and weighs just under 60 pounds. He was found as a stray and taken into a shelter where he stayed for just over 6 months. Fortunately for Lenny, Underdog ResQ had an open foster home where Lenny would make a perfect fit. In early February Lenny was transported to his foster home where he has been loving the constant attention, good food and warm cozy bed!
Most of all, Lenny LOVES human touch and cannot get enough love, hugs, pets and brushing! When the attention stops he'll lean over and nudge with his head for more. He is a great lap warmer and oh so snuggly.
Lenny is smart. He knows Sit, Lay Down, Come, Paw/Shake, Stay, No and In your bed. Lenny is crate trained and has never had any accidents in his crate. He has never needed to be crated in his foster home while his foster mom is home. Lenny walks well on a leash but can be stubborn at times and needs a little coaxing to walk in the direction you want to go. He is a nice low energy dog fit for people who work from home, love watching TV or prefer to go for short leisurely walks. Active people who are seeking a jogging partner should stop reading his bio now.
Lenny lives with a cat and two small canine brothers and does very well with them. Low energy dogs would be best if Lenny were to have canine siblings. If you have a dog at home and wish to pursue meeting him, please be advised that he does have some food resource guarding with other dogs, not people, so you have to know a lot about canine behavior to manage feedings at home. Lenny has not demonstrated any problems when meeting dogs outside.
We haven't seen Lenny with kids so far but expect him to be okay since he is not a jumper. But, we think older teens or just adults would be a good match for him due to his mellow personality.
All in all, Lenny is a super sweet dog with a great big heart. A family that's looking for a low energy big lap dog would love Lenny!! Lenny's foster mom feels like he may even have some Yellow Lab in him.
