OUR DOG OF THE MONTH:Leah
'Amazing' is the word that we most often hear from our trainers who have met and worked with Leah. At a year and a half old, our gorgeous velvety white pit bull mix is loyal, gentle, fun loving, well grounded and eager to please. Leah is one of those sweet, happy, friendly dogs that loves all people and is especially good with kids, who she has lived with before. She is also great with other dogs and could easily live with another good natured dog with medium to high energy who enjoys playtime. Her playful and engaging nature is perfect for an active home where she could get exercise and social stimulation. Inside, shes a dream...calm, housebroken, sweet and affectionate. Her foster mom says that Leah loves to hang out, whether its plopping down on the dog bed watching her foster mom fold laundry or simply amusing herself when everyone is busy. She is not a demanding dog. She has balanced energy, loves life fully and doesn't constantly have to be at your side. But call her name and she'll be up for anything anytime. She loves having her energy directed...she smart that way! Her real happiness comes from being part of a family, interacting and wanting to please. She embraces life and is very upbeat and outgoing. People who know and love this breed recognize what a wonderful dog Leah is, so it was no surprise she became the shelter's favorite when her family had to surrender her when they lost their home. Since that time, SFTH has been taking good care of her, making sure this 55 lbs amber eyed beauty gets the socialization and training that all dogs need. Now as a young adult, we want to find her a home where she will thrive and be happy. Leah is healthy, spayed, microchipped, hw neg and up to date on all her shots.

Founded in Sept. 2000 Stray from the Heart is a non-profit, volunteer-run dog rescue organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of homeless dogs. SFTH has grown into a network of volunteers who donate their time, expertise and housing space to help abandoned, abused, and neglected dogs find permanent, loving homes.
SFTH is also a member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, a collaboration between animal care groups and the City of New York aimed at developing creative solutions to local animal care and control issues.
To date SFTH has helped rescue over 2,400 dogs, all without the benefit of either paid employees or a dedicated shelter facility. We rely solely on the generosity of its volunteers, supporters and contributors for its continued success.
We are different from other shelter and rescue organizations in that we have the uncanny ability to continuously successfully match up pets and people. As desperate as our little ones are for a home, we will always hold out for the right home.
If you have room in your life for a new best friend, call 212.726.DOGS and speak to an adoption counselor/matchmaker today. Thank you for giving our Strays the chance to experience joy, love and a life beyond their wildest dreams.
