About Wham

Wham A229884 Wham is a 1.5 year old female who came into the shelter on July 12 as a stray. Handling 7/18: https://youtu.be/chcVBkyIH-o Handling video: https://youtu.be/3SfRfTDSHnI Leash test: https://youtu.be/LmwFVkaeBOc Wham is little but mighty. And she will let everyone know she’s around by announcing her presence wherever she goes. Wham is young and bounces during leashing. She gets frustrated in her kennel and bored, which isn’t a great combination for getting a dog out easily. Once the leash is on she’s a typical puppy. Wham is energetic but calms down each minute she gets outside. Go figure, the more exercise she gets, the more relaxed she becomes. Wham will jump for attention sometimes, another typical youthful behavior. This is where the small but mighty comes in. Her short legs have hops and she likes to slam her love on us when she gets excited. Wham already knows some commands and is food motivated. She loves to chase toys and can get some serious air when she catches a ball on a high bounce. We think her athletics would continue in the water, she loves the pool. She currently just sits in to cool off and will accept some snacks while she lounges, but would be an adorable swimmer in a larger body of water. Wham allows handling all over and will give affection back. The shelter isn’t going to be her stage to shine brightest, she will need someone to take a chance on her.

Leonardo A228303 Leonardo is a 3 year old male who came into the shelter on 6/3 as a stray. Handling 6/8: https://youtu.be/PPC3lEGQwEk Handling: https://youtu.be/_rZG2eFaSbE Leash Test: https://youtu.be/Vcc52ZHmVWY Some dogs come into the shelter and just trust you immediately. This is the case with Leonardo. When we approached his kennel, he immediately stood up and offered his head to be leashed. Leonardo followed us outside without hesitation. He just seems to have a happy joyful disposition and has those eyes, those eyes make a girl’s heart skip a beat! He seems quite young and already such a big boy, but very easy to handle. Leonardo takes treats like a gentleman! He seems to want to be right by our side the whole time that we were outdoors. When we would stop rubbing his sweet head, he would nudge us to restart again. Leonardo did a little exploring around the play yard but he certainly likes to be near humans. Leonardo can be bouncy, especially likes to jump behind his handler as we walk. He seems starved for attention. We can’t imagine someone isn’t looking for this boy, but are continued to be dumbfounded time and time again at the shelter with all amazing dogs come in as “strays“ and nobody, nobody comes for them. Leonardo is looking for a family that will help him grown with continued training and lots of love. show less
