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.
Lenny & his big (human) brother
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??

Lee Miller will be taking part in the Marathon Maple Festival pancake eating contest this Saturday April 7th to raise money for Hubbard’s Hounds Dog rescue! Come cheer him on at 9AM in the auditorium at the high school. Donations can be made there.
Would you like to make a HUGE difference in the life of a dog? It is a wonderful experience to foster, rehabilitate, and then send a dog to a wonderful forever home! Many worry they won’t be able to give the dog up…I worried about that also, and I have failed a couple times. But I’ve also placed many, many dogs in their forever homes! It is a very rewarding experience and there is always help to guide you through.
If you are interested in doing a great thing for dogs, and you’d like to be considered as a foster family, please fill out the application here.
Our fosters stretch out across a wide area of New York State, so no one is too far away! Please apply today!
HOME VISIT VOLUNTEERS
Another way you can help our rescue is by doing Home Visits for potential adopters. Our applicants come from all over the state and sometimes we don’t have foster homes in those areas (or our fosters are just too busy handling the pups!) Having a broad network of trusted people to help us check the homes of our applicants is vital to getting our dogs adopted! We have an easy checklist that you can take with you on a Home Visit and we’re always available to handle any questions or concerns. Please apply here!
Unable to volunteer? Consider making a donation to help support the rescue. Our continued success is dependent upon donations from the public. All donations (100%) go to the care and adoption of the dogs we rescue. All rescuers are volunteers and take no money in return for their work with this dedicated organization. Won’t you please help a dog in need?
Hubbard’s Hounds Would like to give a HUGE thank you to Connor and Hayden! These two generous kids had a lemonade stand to benefit the rescue. Many thanks for contributing to the rescue and the work that we do. The pups give you two paws up!
We have recently received a large number of applications, which is a WONDERFUL thing. However we could use some extra support in checking applications that come in so that we can let folks know as soon as possible about their potential new best friend(s). If you have been interested in helping out, but are unable to foster or perform home visits, this is a perfect way to give back.
Application checkers need to have regular access to the internet to access, fill out, and return a form back to us. They will need to be able to make phone calls to check references, vets, and landlord permission (when applicable). The vet calls will need to happen during their business hours, but reference calls are usually done later in the day (as most individuals are not available during the work week during regular working hours). Volunteers need to complete application checks within 48 hours whenever possible
If you are interested please fill out the Volunteer/Foster application, and include that you are interested in checking applications in the last section.
Hubbard’s Hounds makes sure that all of our foster dogs are fully vetted before adoption–for our healthy pups, this may “only” include vaccinations, spay/neuter costs, flea/tick/heartworm preventatives, etc. But for many of our dogs (most have had a rough life before us) this also includes deworming medication, antibiotics, heartworm treatment, dental work, surgeries, etc. Additionally, we also have many “forever fosters” (dogs who will likely never be adopted for medical or behavioral reasons) whose medical costs we also fully cover for as long as we are blessed to have them. In short…WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Some very generous folks have offered to print and sell these adorable shirts for us–for every shirt ordered, the full purchase price (minus shipping cost) will be donated directly to Hubbard’s Hounds to help with our vet bill! This is a great opportunity to directly help the dogs currently in our rescue and to celebrate our mission to give dogs a second chance at life…one dog at a time! (Please email us if you have any questions!)
We have an emergency with one of our fosters. She has fallen and I need to move several dogs. If you can open your home and heart to any of the ones in need, please let me know as soon as possible. Many are puppy mill dogs that needs special care so puppy mill experience would be a huge help. firstname.lastname@example.org. She also has several dogs of her own that will need places to go.
Buddy is about 5 months old and has been passed around to 3 different owners. His owner now loves him very much and is getting surgery for his broken leg even though it is a financial hardship. I offered to take Buddy, but he really loves him and does not want to give him up so he is putting the surgery on his CC so the dog is taken care of. He is having surgery with Dr. Bookbinder in Canastota tomorrow morning and if anyone would like to donate to help this young man out, it would be greatly appreciated. Buddy will never live a normal life without the surgery because of where his leg is broken. I want to help as a rescue because this young man is willing to do whatever he has to in order for Buddy to have a normal life. Buddy is a very sweet boy and deserves this chance.
Donations can be made on our website or called directly into the vet’s office: Dr. Bookbinder, for Buddy Lasalle at 315-363-4433. Thank you so much. It is nice to see an individual doing the right thing for his dog and I would very much like to help.
