Leon's Info...

Leon's Story...
My name is Leon and I am a 6 year old who has had a pretty tough time in my short little life. I was rescued from a puppymill when I was 2 years old by a rescue group who adopted me to a family in Colorado. After 6 months the adopter wanted to return me because I was not good with young children. I was taken in by CJCR at which time I was treated for glaucoma. My eye pressure was so high, the vet couldn't believe I was so patient during my exam. CJCR took great care of me for the next year and got my eyes as healthy as they could be. I was than adopted by a woman who had me for 2 years. In August 2012, she contacted the rescue and stated that she had some health issues which would no longer allow her to care for me. So here I am back in rescue for the third time through no fault of my own. I am a sweet boy who loves to go for walks and rides in the car. I am a little shy when I first meet new people, but am very affectionate and loving once I get to know you. I do get eye drops daily, however now that my eyes are doing so well we are down to one type of drop a day. I am looking for an adult home where I am not left alone for long periods of time. I do great with other small dogs and cats. I know there is someone out there just waiting to make me their forever companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leon, a Aurora Japanese Chin dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Japanese Chin for sale in Aurora, or seeking a Japanese Chin dog from a breeder in Aurora.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Aurora already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Aurora breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Japanese Chin breeders who help with Japanese Chin rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Aurora paves the way for another one to be saved.
