Pet of the Week – Leia

Please meet Leia! Leia is almost 2 years old, and is a beautiful Bullmastiff mix.  Leia was relinquished to Green Hills Animal Shelter in August 2019, and she took being left at the shelter very hard.  She didn’t understand her new surroundings and spent her time hiding in her kennel.  She was scared to interact with anyone, and even too scared to go outside.

Dogs that are scared have a very hard time being placed, and so Leia waited in the shelter, too frightened to show anyone the amazing spirit and the heart full of love underneath her trembling fur. Fortunately, a very special volunteer made Leia her mission and began working with her to teach her to love and trust again.  Now, several months later, Leia has transformed! She has gone from a sad girl who was too scared to even have a leash put on her, to a happy girl who loves to go outside.  She loves everyone, and she can’t get enough walks, belly rubs, or kisses!

Leia is a big girl, and we think she might still have some growing to do because she has the most wonderfully large paws! She would love a home where her new family would continue to shower her with the attention and love that she now craves. She wants nothing more than to be your loyal companion, and she would love a family who would continue to show her how wonderful life can be when you are loved!

Leia has been spayed, de-wormed, heartworm tested and is up to date on all her vaccinations, including rabies. She has come such a long way – could she continue her journey with you?
