Leia and her brother, Luke, were found abandoned in the village of Sokolovo. When she first arrived at the shelter, Leia had a terrible eye infection; however, this soon cleared up with the help of veterinary treatment, kindly funded by our amazing supporters.
Leia is a friendly, confident, and loyal puppy who loves a cuddle! It takes her a while to trust new people but, once she knows you, she's is incredibly loving. Her favourite pastimes are playing with toys and going for long walks with our team members. She's incredibly clever and very responsive to training, which is likely why she's already crate trained and lead trained. Leia is an energetic puppy who will need an active adopter who can keep her busy brain stimulated (we think she'd be amazing at agility!) She can be fear reactive towards new dogs; however, the Street Hearts BG team are working with Leia to correct this. Leia’s adopter must be willing to continue this training in her future home.
Leia's estimated date of birth is March 1st 2022. She is a Collie-sized Barak hound mix, which is a breed of working / hunting dog, and she weighs around 18kg. Leia will need an adult only home. She could live with another friendly and confident resident dog but cannot live with cats. Leia would be best suited to a rural or semi-rural home environment.
