Leela is an energetic, playful girl who would love to finally have a family of her own. Sadly she has been in shelters since mid-2019 and came to us from a municipal shelter in West Virginia. When she was young, she was hit by a car, causing permanent damage to her left eye but it causes her no pain and does not require any current treatment or medication. You would never know she is practically blind in her left eye because it doesn’t slow her down one bit. In fact, she’s super aware of her surroundings and has a strong prey instinct so she can’t go to a home with farm animals, cats, birds or any similar species.

Leela absolutely loves to play fetch and is amazing at it. If fetch was an Olympic sport, you would want her on your team! She is so smart and just wants to be around people all of the time. Do you want a dog to go with you on a hike during the day then return home to just Netflix and chill with you on the couch for the evening? Then Leela’s your girl! She will be by your side in so many fun activities from playing in the water to hiking up a mountain; she is the sporty sidekick you’ve been looking for. Need some cuddle time? She will snuggle up right beside you.

Leela just wants to be your best friend and aims to please the people in her life. Her reaction to seeing you when you walk through the door will make you feel like the most loved person in the world. If Leela sounds like she might be the right match for you, head to our website to fill out an Adoption Application.
