Are you looking for a dog whose heart is bigger than his brain??? Look no further than Leroy, a big mush of a dog who would like nothing more than to find a home that is going to give him all the love in the world!
Having a rough start to life with owners who neglected him, his journey to a better life began when a shelter worker from another shelter saw him and fell in love with his big, goofy personality. She instantly fell head over heels in love with him and made sure he made his escape from that rural shelter, giving him a second chance at life.
The shelter worker who rescued him did everything in her power to secure rescue for him so that he would never go back to the deplorable conditions that lead to his being heartworm positive. He received his treatment at the shelter and then made the journey to RR where he has been doing beautifully!
Leroy is well on his way to recovery and is now looking for his perfect home. He is EXCELLENT with all types of dogs and can easily coexist if the dog doesn’t engage or will willingly play if the other dog is looking to have fun. He is living with three other dogs and happily chews bones right alongside his canine companions.
He is such a good boy in the crate, especially considering he needed crate rest in his recovery from those nasty heartworms. What he lacks in intelligence, he more than makes up for with his lovable personality. He absolutely LOVES everyone he meets. He would make an incredible family dog and he just adores people. He is doing very well with housetraining and knows how to walk on a leash.
We just can’t say enough wonderful things about this sweet boy. The shelter workers saw something truly special in him, fighting hard to make sure he would only have the best life going forward, and we can definitely see why!
Leroy is Blue Tick Coonhound who is about 5 years old and weighs about 57 lbs. He is currently being fostered in Bethlehem, PA with three dogs, two kids, and two crazy foster parents!
