Our handsome boy, Lee, is a debonair fellow who would charm any adopter.  He joined us in late 2019 from NYCACC after his owners abandoned him to an uncertain fate. Lee seemed to fare pretty well in the shelter setting, but he did display some understandable fearful behavior as he adjusted to the shelter process.

Although Lee received good behavior evaluations, he seemed to show signs of stress as he adjusted to shelter life. He was overwhelmed and overshadowed in the shelter adoption program.  In a short time, he caught the shelter kennel cough and was relegated to the euthanasia list.  We are happy that our shelter contacts rerouted him to our Rescue.

Lee is a delicate Miniature Pinscher mix with a stance and carriage that screams "King of the Toys". We see a smidgen of Chihuahua in his apple head shape, and black-white coloring. Lee has a tall, leggy physique and weighs 16 pounds. Six years old, Lee is an adult dog, well past the puppy mayhem stage.

We think that Lee would most enjoy a quiet lifestyle with an adult single or couple, who love lap dog companionship. He tends to steer clear of chaos, and would not be a good fit for a busy family bursting with kids.  He is an active dog, and loves to play, but he would thrive with a few brisk leash walks each day. Lee could easily join a multi-dog home with one or two other laid back dogs with proper introduction and supervision.  

Lee has good house manners, and is house trained, crate trained and can easily be persuaded to use a wee wee pad in inclement weather. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. 

Lee is in excellent health, and is at a lean body weight. He is recently neutered, and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings. He has been dewormed, and microchipped. He has been on appropriate heartworm and flea/tick preventatives.
