Leah's Story

This gentle giant is a hound in a Rottweiler body — right down to her love of food. Food is one of her main motivators, which makes her eager to train. (She’s a quick learner!) Leah is people-friendly and craves attention from new friends, but she also enjoys people-watching from a perch at the window. She’s a night owl, waking up slowly and finding her energy in the evening. She is always willing to trade cuddles and tail wags for a chance to nap in a comfy lap. 


Are you Leah’s loving home? You might be if you have older kids, a calm house and no other pets. You should also be an experienced dog owner who mirrors Leah’s positive energy.

Meet Leah

Leah can’t wait to meet you!

If you’re interested in adopting this pet, there are few steps you must complete before scheduling an appointment at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center:

1.   Please start by taking our ComPETibility Quiz to make sure they’re a good fit for your home. Your ComPETibility Score will help you compare your home to their needs!

2.   After completing your ComPETibility Quiz, you will be emailed a link to complete your Adoption Application.

3.   Finally, complete our Foster Pet Adoption Inquiry Form! Once this form is submitted, our Adoption Team will take a look at your adoption inquiry and, if they have next steps, reach out within a few days.

Please note that while we can’t place holds on adoptable animals for your scheduled appointment, there are always plenty of homeless pets looking for a home! If you don’t meet the perfect pet, please feel free to complete a new Foster Pet Adoption Inquiry Form.

Please note that due to current COVID restrictions, to meet or adopt an available animal, you will need to schedule an adoption appointment for animals located at our Lincoln Park Adoption Center or complete a Foster Pet Adoption Inquiry Form for animals in a foster home.
