Lenny is an adorable Mountain Feist mix. This terrier breed originates in the Southern Appalachian and Ozark Mountains and were likely companions to original North American pioneers (George Washington and Lincoln even wrote about these pups!) True to breed temperament, Lenny is curious, intelligent, alert, and physically active.
His foster family is working on house-training (Lenny figured out the dog door in less than a minute) and he’s been learning a lot about what to do (and what not to do) in a home. He is a great companion dog and thoroughly enjoys being around his foster family. He would do best with another young, active dog to keep him company (he adores his senior foster sibling but is a bit much for her!) He has done well with the toddler in his foster home, but has a lot of energy so would ideally do best with older children who can appropriately engage with him and handle his high activity level.
A high-fenced yard or leashed walks is a must for this guy since his nose and prey-drive lead him and are always “on”. Similarly, he needs a home without cats or other small animals. Lenny can be a little mischievous on occasion, but is a very good boy when exercised appropriately and will be a wonderful addition to the right family. He is currently crated overnight or when the humans leave and has done very well with it. At 4 months old and ~25lbs, Lenny’s the perfect size. Did we mention he is also neutered and fully vetted?! In short, Lenny is ready for a home for the holidays–can you help??
