Go for walks and car rides! I’m the perfect co-pilot in the passenger seat. I also love my alone time, so if you can’t shower me with attention, that’s just fine!
A squeaky hedgehog toy that I bring with me everywhere.
I get along well with
Adults & most other dogs. Though I don’t know yet how to play, I prefer to be in a house with another dog because I follow and learn from them. It helps keep me company.
I would rather not
Be in a household with young children. They make me a little nervous.
A loving owner who will take me for a lot of walks and be patient with some of my humorous quirks (like only running counterclockwise around objects). A fenced in yard would be PERFECT!
Leila is a very sweet 5 year old Puggle rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri. She was the mother of the litters and until rescued, had little to no interaction with people. She has come a long way – she is now leash trained, potty trained, and trusts people. She has the sweetest disposition and does not bark or bite. Her underbite creates an adorable smile quite often! She is one special girl who is looking for a loving home.
