Leia – From Abandoned and Starved to Healthy and Happy – ADOPTED!

You can see that Leia was skin over bones. So sad.

Leia is such a happy girl, as well she should be. Leia was abandoned as a puppy when a family left town. She was spotted by a neighbor, totally starved and literally skin over bone. We’ve included a photo of her at rescue.

Boat rides are a favorite.

Well, that is behind her now. She is a healthy, happy, 12 week old (as of Feb. 3, 2017) labrador retriever mix with a beautiful, shiny coat and a playful, happy disposition.  She’s a healthy 18 pounds now, so we think she will be a large adult dog.

Leia loves being at the lake.

Like all puppies, Leia will benefit from puppy classes. She is such a smart girl that she’s sure to be the star of her class. She knows how to use the doggy door in her foster home, is good in her crate, loves a ride in a boat, and loves her housemates – several other dogs and two cats.

Leia loves her bed and her toys.

Leia is all lab puppy – that means lots of energy, chewing during her teething episodes, and jumping for joy when she sees you. Adoptive families should be prepared for all of the fun and turmoil that having a puppy entails.

Because she is so energetic, her family should have older children. Energetic puppies and small children are not a good fit.

If Leia looks like your girl, email Warm Hearts by clicking on the “Request an adoption form …” link on the right side of this page for an application to adopt. That is the first step in the process. Leia’s adoption/vetting fee is $175.00. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, de-wormed and has started her heartworm prevention.
