About Chutney

Chutney A229885 Chutney is a 2 year old male who came into the shelter on July 12 as a stray. Handling 7/17: Handling video: Leash Test: Chutney and his flappy jowls are fun and funny. We don’t think Chutney knows he’s funny though, his face is always trying to be so serious. He is ready and waiting in his kennel and usually find him standing on his hind legs to great us. Chutney can be a spring board during leashing and sometimes likes to fly for attention when we are outside. When he stands up he’s almost our height and might not be done growing yet. It’s hard to tell if he’s a puppy or just never given any real rules of engagement. Chutney is so skinny and his ears are crusty and bloody from healing wounds. We aren’t sure if he was kept outside or surviving on the streets for long but he wasn’t super dirty. Being so skinny, Chutney is very food motivated and already knows the sit command. He allows handling all over and takes treats gently. Chutney was non stop tailing wagging outside and loved all the attention we were giving him. He’s a nice boy looking for a nice life.

Leonardo A228303 Leonardo is a 3 year old male who came into the shelter on 6/3 as a stray. Handling 6/8: Handling: Leash Test: 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
