Leela is a 4 year old female Wheaten Terrier mix who looks like a Yorkie Terrier mix but weighs about 31.3 lbs. She came into our rescue as a very pregnant mom from the shelter. She had beautiful puppies and now is the time to hang up the Mommy Apron and find a home of her own. If you're looking for a bestie who you're prepared to spoil rotten, shower with pets, and a companion for your daily walks, whether that's from the kitchen to the backyard or a couple laps around the block, Leela is your girl!
Leela is very sweet and is quick to befriend humans. She's a dog who loves her people. Leela does zoomies when the leash comes out and loves to get out in the neighborhood where she gets to meet other people. She is equally happy to take a nap while her humans are nearby. Her foster family says, "Leela is an incredibly chill, low maintenance pup when she is near her humans. She is just content to be near you. She is incredibly sweet and just wants your love and all the pets you can give."
"We wake up at 5:30am, head out for a walk. We have breakfast around 8am. Leela hangs out at home while we work from home. When we go into the office, we do utilize the crate. She gets another walk in the afternoon, has her evening meal around 5pm, and then is happy to spend the evening relaxing. She typically has another walk between 6pm-8pm. Leela is happy to sleep in her dog bed at night. She has proven to be housetrained."
Leela is a pretty good walker on the leash, but does pull if she gets excited by squirrels and birds. She is a little uncertain when other dogs are approaching, but she wants to follow them as they are walking away and sometimes startles when other dogs start barking at her. She does enjoy the company of other friendly, calm dogs but would be happy as an only dog too, especially if her people are around! She's a great combination of lively and energetic as well as a great lounger. She's learning to play with toys.
Leela came to us with only one eye. She has been checked out by a vet and is no pain, and the injury requires no further care.
Leela is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own in the last five years. If there are any children in the home they need to be over the age of ten
