Lenny - This Gentle Giant Loves to Play.........
Susan Daffron talks to Eddie Nichols from the Foothills Animal Rescue in Arizona about a dog named Lenny who is available for adoption. Lenny is a 3-year old large yellow Labrador retriever mix who weighs about 70 pounds or so. Eddie calls him a "gentle giant" and says that he loves to run around the yard and play. It would be ideal if Lenny could be an only dog, since in the past at the rescue facility he was somewhat selective in the dogs he got along with. Now that he's in foster care, he's more relaxed and seems to be getting along better with other dogs. But if you have a dog already, you'd still need to do an introduction before adopting Lenny to make sure the dogs like each other.
The ideal home for Lenny is one that has adults and older children that will be gentle and loving. Right now, that two teenage girls at his foster home love walking him because he's very good on leash. Lenny does know basic commands and will sit nicely when you ask him. Eddie points out that even though Lenny is doing well in his foster home, he needs a forever home. When you adopt a dog, you make it possible for the foster family to help another dog.
