Good news for this pooch
Lenny has a new 4ever home!
Here’s the scoop
If you haven’t been following the drama, read the full story here.
For the past seven days, the shelter (Jackson County Animal Shelter) sequestered Lenny from the public while they evaluated him and took care of medical needs (shots, neuter, etc). We visited a few times but were unable to see him. On Monday afternoon, the shelter phoned to tell us Lenny was officially up for adoption and in the public viewing area. Yay!
Less than one hour later, I returned the call asking if I could stop by on Tuesday to snap more photos to share with prospective new parents (and selfishly spend some time with him). That’s when they informed me someone already scooped Lenny up. You see, Lenny is THAT special. He was in the public/adopt-me area and in 10 minutes (literally TEN minutes) someone felt the love and wanted this adorable, lively, spirited, silly boy to be a part of the family. The only thing I know about Lenny’s new parent is that he’s a guy. The shelter gave him my number, so hopefully he’ll call. I’d like to give Lenny a proper farewell smooch on that cute nose.
A big thank you to everyone who shared the post and/or expressed your concern. Lenny’s post had a wide circulation in one week’s time. Folks from all over were lending a virtual helping hand. Man. This social media thing can be so fantabulously awwwsome. BTW: The dumper is still at large.
