AUSTIN, TX: Oh, Leroy. Can't you see how desperate he is for your attention? This almost 8 year old boy has been lingering in the shelter for over eight months. His story has been reposted from SSD over 2,200 times!! But still nothing has panned out for him. Leroy's ideal spot is a low traffic home without stairs because of his stiffness. His size and age have been the major deterrents for potential adopters, but Leroy is just a big softie. And, as you can see, Leroy is a toy-loving, puppy at heart! PLEASE SHARE! 🐛🐛 @austinpetsalive wrote, "Leroy is a big guy who gets ZERO attention at the shelter. He's in one of our larger kennels to accommodate his size but it's still a kennel which isn't ideal for this sweet, old man. Plus it's in a back corner that people don't always notice. And he deserves air conditioning and humans to love on him.
When other dogs Leroy's age are mostly interested in the couch, Leroy still loves toys, loves playing fetch, and still gets the zoomies around the yard! He loves his toys and enjoys picking a toy out of the chest each day. Not that he doesn't appreciate the couch. A lot. His signature move is to lay a big sloppy kiss on you and then run away as if you wouldn't know it was him.
For all his goofiness and affection, Leroy can be a bit nervous with new people. But you won't have any trouble knowing when you've earned his trust (see: big sloppy kisses). Treats are the quickest way to win his heart and mind.
Leroy needs a low traffic home (without stairs). He could go in a home with older kids and/or well matched dog. He is heartworm positive but treatment will be through APA so a local adopter would be ideal." To adopt Leroy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to apply!
