    Lenny's Story . . .
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Original:  Prior to her owner’s retirement, Lenny had enjoyed a year of hunting.  She would likely welcome taking up that activity again.
     
    Miss Lenny came into MAESSR’s care along with her mother, Lady.  Their surrendering family was an older couple in New Jersey who were having mobility problems.  This made it difficult to care for the two girls, so the extremely difficult decision was made to allow MAESSR to find them new families.
     
    Lenny is a wonderfully sweet girl that loves attention.  She is housetrained and has excellent indoor manners.  She is crate trained but, since she is so well-behaved, crating isn’t necessary.  Lenny walks well on a leash and loves going for car rides. 
     
    Like most all Springers, Lenny enjoys people.  She has been raised with children coming into and out of her home, so she’s good with them as well as teens and all adults.  She tends to bark when visitors approach the house but is fine once they enter.  Once the newcomers are inside, she welcomes them and quickly begs for their affection!
     
    Prior to her owner’s retirement, Lenny had enjoyed a year of hunting.  She would likely welcome taking up that activity again.  She also loves to go for walks and missed that when her owner could no longer take her for such outings.
     
    Well trained, well-tempered, and accustomed to being loved, this good little girl will be a fabulous addition to some lucky family.
