Lenya is still available for adoption. She is in foster care. She has special needs that requires medication. From her Petfinder profile: “Leyna arrived to UPAWS after her beloved owner fell ill and was no longer able to care for her. Leyna is longing to find find a new home where she can be loved and spoiled for the rest of her days. She appears to get along with most other respectful canines and people. What she would love most is a new, loving companion that she can devote herself to. Can you be the retirement home that Leyna longs for? With Leyna’s age, she does have some medications that are necessary to keep her happy and healthy. UPAWS will help to cover the cost of these medications during the transition to her new home.
