Lee (homed)

“I am being sponsored by Toni! Thank you! Please visit Sponsor a Hound if you wish to sponsor another of my kennel mates :)”

This poor boy was apparently found wandering loose in a small town about 60km from Tamworth- no doubt dumped. He ended up at the pound, and would have been put down if we hadn’t taken him in. As he had his checkup, microchipping and vaccinations the Vet asked his name. Peter said he did not have one, that he’d come from Tamworth but Tammy was a girl’s name, so she suggested Lee after Lee Kernaghan the country singer! So Lee it is.

He’s an all-round nice boy with kind eyes. Lee is not cat friendly. He’d really benefit from a foster home to build up his health in more comfort than the kennels can provide and also to teach him some boundaries. Lee used to be quite bouncy, but he has settled down since being in the kennels for a while now.
He was so keen to meet the photographer that she had no choice but to take some time to share his kennel and give him a hug.  She wasn’t sure whether it was her or the treats he was more interested in, but it soon became apparent that after the treats were handed out, he was just as pleased to be spending time with someone and getting some long deserved attention.

A super friendly boy, this lovely hound has so much love to share, he is ecstatic that anyone takes time to give him some affection.  His condition is not ideal, with patches missing from his fur and a few scars here and there, and like many hounds, he is a little underweight.  Despite this, he is the most loving and friendly boy you could ever hope to meet.  A very happy soul indeed, considering his past was probably quite grim.

At 6 and a bit he still has some energy to bound around the yard. However he sat there perfectly behaved and did not mind at all having his photo taken.  Actually he was quite the super model; changing poses and direction without even being asked!

Lee is not cat friendly but surely there must be a home without a cat readyf or him? He deserves to wait in a foster home, please consider becoming a foster carer 🙂

Lee is:

* 6 years old (dob ’06)

* heartworm checked and treated

* vaccinated and microchipped

* desexed

* adoption costs $300

    Lee is a really special dog. Considering where he’s come from, he’s trusting, affectionate and such fun! In the 2 or 3 weeks he’s been at the kennels he’s really come out of his shell and just loves people and playing fetch! He’s already one of my favourites..

    Hi Rebecca
    Lee is in kennels still and would love a foster carer. He is Ok, but not great, with small dogs (we think this will improve) but hasn’t had much exposure to children. This doesn’t mean he won’t be good with them- most males are marvellous with kids of all ages. If you’d like to arrange to visit one or both of the kennels with your small dog and child, please let us know. Peter and Jan are away til 4 Jan but Nora and Verity among others are holding the fort at the kennels for now! Let us know

    Rebecca, Vincent, Chief and Kernaghan would each be worth meeting- they all need fostering. You can email nora@dieppedesign.com if you’d like to arrange a meeting!

    Wonderful Lee. He deserves a bit of luxury.

    I picked up Lee from Justin and Cindy’s place this afternoon. So far, so good. He’s pooped and been asleep most of the time but I think he will be a joy.
