LECHE – A838825 – 1 yr old male pittie – 52lbs – OS, 11/20, owned one year, no time to care for.
He is in adoption ward, meaning he is healthy and has good enough behavior to be adopted but is still in a kill shelter.
A VOLUNTEER WRITES:
Leche is a 1.4 yo male relinquished on 11/20 to the shelter. Leche was pre-owned and his actual owner had no time for him anymore. Leche is said to be a very loving, affectionate and highly caring companion animal. He would be very good toward people, children and other dogs. His owner says that Leche is deaf. Leche weights 53lbs and has some type of non contagious dermatitis, may be nutritional. He was rated No Concern upon arrival.
Leche is a gorgeous white dog with blue eyes. He is a bit on the hyper side and at first, jumps at his caretaker. No aggression in this young fellow. He wants to play and snuggle with you. He would love to be a lap dog and dreams to be a teacup Chihuahua. Leche is indeed very friendly. We have not seen any display of aggression toward other dogs, on the contrary. He seems to be housebroken. Deaf dogs can be wonderful in the right hands.
