What can we say about Leroy?
It’s hard to believe that when Leroy first came to Club HUHA he was so fearful he would’t let anyone touch him below his head. Every time we carefully ran our hands down his back for a soft stroke he flinched and bolted away. We couldn’t put a collar or lead on him without him spinning around and whimpering.
So we never pressured him. We offered our love, support, routines and respect. Leroy soon realised he could have cuddles when he wanted … or not! It was all on his terms. Letting him make the choice to engage with people or not was life changing for sweet Leroy. He quickly flourished with the people he knew and loved. Slowly that extended out to folks he didn’t know as well!
Nowadays, we stand there watching him lean on a stranger’s leg asking for an ear rub and shake our heads. How is that the same dog??? Who would have thought he would become so trusting that people are kind and good?
That’s the HUHA magic right there. Letting the dogs discover and develop at their own pace surrounded by love and their doggy friends helping show them the way.
Leroy is ready now. Ready for the next step in his journey. HUHA has been a life-changing stepping stone for him, but now it is time for him to step into his new life with his new family that will adore him as much as we all do.
Loveable, leg-leaning Leroy is looking for a rural home with lots of space to zoomie and another dog to be his bestie/guide dog to show him the new world of being a much loved pet. This sensitive boy would unfortunately not cope in the suburbs. He needs quiet, wide open spaces to occasionally bark his head off with joy.
If you can offer Leroy his dream home where he can sleep inside at night and be snuggled everyday, please call 022 249 1020 or email email@example.com
