Leonard, adoptable from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society

“Hi! My name’s Leonard and I’m an 8-year-old neutered male hound mix. If you’ve been looking for a loyal, fun-loving companion that will keep you smiling and active, look no further!

“I came to Lucy Mackenzie from Delaware, where I was one of several adoptable dogs that were relocated to Lucy Mackenzie to help make room in local shelters for animals that were displaced by Hurricane Florence.

“Truth be told, I was happy to do so. Not only did I help out a fellow canine, but I really feel like I hit the jackpot — I love it here! I love Vermont and all the people that I’ve met. I’ve been very busy since I’ve set foot here in West Windsor. Not only have I been focused on perfecting my obedience training, but I also ran the Lucy Mac 5K9 in early October with one of my human buddies — we had so much fun! I loved it, and hope that my new family loves the outdoors as much as I do.

“I’ve heard a lot about the New England winters and strongly suspect that I am going to love frolicking through the snow, and I’m so excited! In case you haven’t guessed, my ideal family would be active and love the outdoors. They would also be OK with serious snuggle time.

“It would be best if I didn’t live with young children, but I’m good with older dog-savvy children. I behave well around other dogs, and am open to meeting potential canine companions. So, if you’ve been thinking the time has come to welcome a very deserving, very lovable new canine companion in to your life, stop in and meet me today!”

(Leonard is up for adoption from Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society, located at 4832 Route 44 in West Windsor and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 12-4 p.m. Lucy Mackenzie is also on Facebook and Twitter and can be reached at 802-484-5829.)
