Guess what? It’s me, Leah, and I’m available for adoption! I’m 30 lbs of sassafras and I’m ready to find my furever.
A lot of my life I have been struggling with some serious itchiness and ear infections. In fact, that’s how I found myself here in my foster home. I have been treated for chronic ear infections and the dogtor (veterinarian) said that because of my past infections, I have narrowed ear canals. I can still hear you (selectively, I mean, I am a Frenchie) but I need a little extra help keeping my ears clean. I also have a lucky ear, yep! Just like Nemo’s little fin. I have a crinkled ear flap from a baaaaaad ear infection that led to a hematoma (blood filled ear flap). I think it helps me stand out in the crowd. I have a bit of an expensive palate; my prescription food runs about $100 per bag. It’s been really helping with my allergies and what can I say? A queen should eat as a queen!
I have to say something that may be a little controversial. I don’t really like other dogs! I know, sounds funny coming from me… but I really prefer my people to be just that - MY people. I haven’t exactly fought the other dog in my foster home, but I have to say I have given them a stern talking to and charged them a time or 2. Why? I don't know, my foster parents said it’s unprovoked and unpredictable… For this reason, I need a home with no other furry friends. I can assure you that with a girl like me, one fur friend is MORE than enough!
I recently started sneaking into my foster parent’s bed. I don’t know if they noticed, but it’s the best night's sleep I’ve ever had. I’d REALLY like it if my furever family lets me sleep with them. I also love chewing bones, belly rubs, hanging in the backyard and snacks! I do have a part-time career. I am a permanent member of neighborhood paw patrol AKA neighborhood watch. I spend my afternoons watching and documenting the comings and goings in our neighborhood. Sometimes if the sun hits just right, I accidentally catch a little snooze… Don’t tell HR!
Tiny humans are going to be a "no" for me. I like them, I really do… but I accidentally knock them around from how excited I am! I would do great in a home with older dog savvy children who can help correct me as well. I really love to paw at people and jump on them for attention. I am getting the hang of house training but have been on prednisone for a lot of my time in foster care. This causes me to have to go more often but I am learning to alert my people by going to the back door. At only 3 years old, I’m still young enough to be taught and I know there’s a family willing to work on things with me and learn together.
Do I sound like the new queen of your castle!? Apply for me!
