Meet Lenny

Lenny is a 7.5 year old West Highland Terrier X who is around 9kg in weight. He is a beautiful friendly boy who loves being around people. He is people orientated and loves attention and company. He is in need of a new home as unfortunately his home situation has changed to moving around and a loud 2-year-old who constantly chases him around the house and stands over him, Lenny has become anxious and nervous and is constantly being chased around by the toddler.

Lenny will give his new owners love, affection and company.
He walks well on a lead but is generally walked around other dogs to avoid confrontation. He is house trained and spends most of his day indoors. He will let you know when he needs to go outside to the toilet.

He was last vaccinated in May 2019. He is next due for his vaccination in 2022 and needs a kennel cough vaccination in May 2020.
Lenny has been with his current owners since he was a puppy so it’s a very hard decision for them to rehome him but they believe rehoming Lenny would be the best for him.

An Ideal home for Lenny would be
A home where he can be a mostly indoors dog.
A home where the owner is home most of the time and can devote time
and attention to Lenny.
A home with elderly owners is probably an ideal fit.
A home with no other dogs.
A home with no small kids or toddlers.

Lenny is currently receiving on-going Anxiety medication of which comprises of ½ tablet twice daily that is given with his food. It’s expected that this would be an on-going requirement as he has been diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder.

Lenny had bladder stones in 2017 which required surgery, Lenny is on a special diet of Hills L/D food and has an on-going requirement to be fed only Hills L/D food.

Lenny can be dog aggressive especially of dogs coming towards him so he is best in a home where he is the only other dog. He seems to tolerate dogs in other yards. He seems to tolerate cats and gets along with them and its only other dogs that scares him.

Lenny's front feet have been splayed from birth but it does not give him any on-going issues.

Lenny is desexed, vaccinated, wormed. He has good teeth and looks healthy, bright and alert. He has just had a hair cut & grooming to be ready for the hot summer months.

He is a friendly boy who enjoys pats and rubs and likes a good rub around the side of the face and neck. He will thrive in a nice quite home where he gets lot of attention.

Please contact us if you think you can provide Lenny the quiet home that he needs while keeping up with medications and diet.
