Leroy is a 2 year old, 31lb Ori Pei. An Ori Pei is a cross between a Shar Pei and a Pug. They were originally breed to try to correct some of the genetic issues found in the Shar Pei breed...but Leroy doesn't care anything about this. This is what he knows...he turned 2 years old on 1 Sept 13. He had lived his whole life in a puppy mill as a breeding dog. He was rescued on Lola's Legacy Rescue. When he arrived at the rescue, he was covered in ticks, and he has scars from years of ticks and fighting. He met some really great people and they cleaned him all up. He loves everybody and all dogs. He went to a foster home with the Mullis Pups. His new foster sister, Dakota, taught him how to play with other dogs and with toys. He learned about stairs, which are scary, but he can do both deck stairs and carpeted stairs too! He learned that sleeping in his crate isn't so bad as long as the door is open, but he now sleeps in his very own bed with a warm blanket, and he enjoys sleeping all night long. He's house trained already and uses a doggie door! He learned to walk on a leash and found that he's much better at it than his foster brother and sister, Winston and Morgan. He loves to snuggle, give kisses and sitting in a humans lap is pretty cool. Grass is fun and flowers tickle his nose. He loves to go hiking and wears a backpack like his foster siblings. He's learned that life is good when you're free and someone loves you!
Leroy was adopted by the Mullis Pups in October 2013. Please say hello to Leroy Walter Mullis!
