Meet Riesling

VISIT LEIASHOPE.ORG FOR OUR ADOPTION PROCESS.

Riesling is known as a Teddy bear (shih tzu/Bichon). She weights approx 4 lbs and was born Sept 3.

Riesling was consigned to a dog breeding auction. Instead of being purchased by a breeder, Leia's Hope secured her freedom.

Riesling is a delightful puppy that loves to play with the other dogs in her foster home. She enjoys tugging on the golden retrievers face and ears (he's not so much of a fan of it, but tolerates it ok) and rolling around with the little dogs. She rides great in the car and will sleep contently in the passenger's seat. She can't hold her bladder/stools through the night yet, so her new family will need to be prepared to take her out at least once in the middle of the night.

We will be seeking a home with a young playful dog and or children (5+ age) to help her continue in her socialization and learning to be a friendly pup!

Riesling's adoption fee is $415. Due to her age she has not been spayed. A spay contract will be signed by the adopter. If visiting our vet, the spay will be paid for. Riesling is current on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on flea and heart worm prevention monthly. Visit leiashope.org for our adoption process.

WE DO ADOPT OUT OF THE AREA, HOWEVER, WE DO NOT SHIP NOR ARRANGE TRANSPORTS. YOU WILL HAVE TO COME TO DECATUR, IL TO MEET THE DOG. IF FLYING, DOGS MUST FLY IN THE CABIN AND THE EXPENSE OF THE HEALTH CERTIFICATE IS ON THE ADOPTER.

THE APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED AND SUBMITTED BEFORE WE CAN START THE PROCESS.

IT CAN TAKE AT LEAST 7 DAYS TO PROCESS AN APPLICATION SOMETIMES LONGER DEPENDING ON VOLUNTEER AVAILABILITY AND NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS RECEIVED SO PLEASE BE PATIENT AS WE ARE VOLUNTEERS WITH FAMILIES AND FULL TIME JOBS AND DOGS OF OUR OWN TO CARE FOR.

IF INTERESTED IN A PUPPY (UNDER 9 MONTHS): YOU MUST HAVE A FLEXIBLE WORK SCHEDULE OR SOMEONE HOME ALL DAY. PUPPIES NEED TO BE LET OUT TO POTTY OFTEN, THEY NEED SOCIALIZATION AND BONDING AND NEED TRAINING (HOUSETRAINING AND BEHAVIORAL TRAINING). IF YOU WORK LONG HOURS, HAVE A BUSY SOCIAL SCHEDULE OR NOT FINANCIALLY SECURE THEN A PUPPY IS NOT FOR YOU. PUPPIES ARE A 15+ YEAR COMMITTMENT, ADOPTERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO COMMIT TO THE LIFETIME OF THE PET!
