Dogs of the Week: Jim and Leroy

Julia D Dog of the Week

We have two dogs we want to feature this week. They are not related and they don’t need to be adopted together. We just love both of them and wanted to showcase them both.

Come and meet Jim!  He is a one and half-year-old Chihuahua mix.  He loves life!  He is good with cats, kids, men, and especially other dogs.  He loves playing with other dogs, large and small!  He is kennel trained and slept through the night day one!  He’s working on sit and come but we are just in the beginning stages. He stays in his kennel during the day while everyone is at work with no issues.  He chews only his toys and like a puppy is curious about other household objects, but leaves them alone when told.  He loves it best when he can be wherever his human is at.


Introducing Leroy! He is a one-year-old hound mix that was abandoned at a vet clinic in Missouri after a serious injury. Dropped off by his family that never returned to pick him up, left to heal at the clinic that took on the cost and recovery and wanted to see Leroy have a happy ending, they called a local group to help get him into rescue. That group called Last Hope and Leroy’s journey north to a new life began! Being a hound mix, Leroy is a very smart and busy boy. He will need an active family that can keep up with his puppy energy and cuddle with him when it’s time to nap. Leroy is crate trained, loves toys, and potty trained. He does good with other dogs but still likes to play rough like a puppy so if there is another dog, they will need to be tolerant and playful. Cats and smaller pets are not a fit for Leroy as he thinks they are toys to play with and not a family member. He seems to like kids but we recommend kids over 8 as he will probably knock little ones over with all his excitement.

Jim’s adoption fee is $250 and Leroy’s adoption fee is $300. Those include neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, microchips with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
