My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Leia may look intimidating, but she is such a sweet and loving girl. Leia would do best in a home with older children, and people who understand boundaries. Leia does well with older or calmer dogs. She is a resource guarder, so she needs a person who understands this. Leia is leash trained and potty trained. She is a huge couch potato and would love someone to snuggle with. She does love her treats, but it wouldn’t hurt to not give her any LEIA has been at the shelter for 5 YEARS!!! 5 YEARS!! When will she get a family and a shot at a forever home!Please visit our website, to fill out an application today!
