Unfortunately I have not been able to visit any gorgeous dogs at Wood Green, The Animals Charity recently, due to attempt at Olympic Loft Falling as per earlier blog post.
I had already seen him on YouTube doing an mini- agility course, he is uber intelligent and apparently does anything for food, in the form that he can be trained easily to do an agility course with just a treat in your hand.
I fed him some treats through the bars, before taking him for a walk, just as a brief bonding session, he was taking the small treats from my fingers with ease, again, similar with Bouncer, I was apprehensive about feeding from hand, but as much as I could feel his teeth taking treat it was done in a very gentle way.
What I did find really sad were the 2 couples that viewed him while I was feeding him treats, the first looked and said he did not look ‘rottweiler enough’ , the second couple said he did not look ‘labrador enough’ – this really bothered me, Lenny was gorgeous, with a personality to match. I wanted to scream at these people… I had not even taking Lenny for a walk and I was sold.
He was a treat to walk, happy to greet other dogs and humans, while walking at our sides the whole time, never pulling on the lead.
Lenny is a dog that would suit a family with a large garden, he would enjoy lots of exercise, I can imagine you could walk him for days and he would still be happy to walk some more, so this is why a large garden would be of use as he could exercise himself, however he would still need at least 2 twenty minute walks a day.
Lenny is a very intelligent dog, to save him from boredom the staff at Wood Green give him a box at night time, filled with cardboard and treats, he enjoys pulling the box apart to find the treats.
The strange thing about Lenny is why no-one has taken him home… there has been no interest in him for 1 month now.
With Harry he used to sit at the back and not come to the front to see people and sell himself, JoJo was stressed so in a seperate room so not seen so much and then there’s Bouncer, he was a scruffy dog, and some people love this, but unfortunately some people don’t.
Lenny has been at Wood Green since May, he is just over 1yrs old and has plenty of love to give so come on…. Lets Find Him a Home!!!
If you can not offer Lenny a home then perhaps you know someone that can, if so forward this blog post to them, he’s an adorable guy and just wants some cuddles and fun (don’t we all!)
