MEET LENTIL…who is tiny, savory and delicious!  We don’t do it very often, but we took this puppy at 13 weeks old (DOB 12/15/2021 est) from Downey Shelter, when he was ailing with Parvo.  Gratefully, we got him in time and he is about 90% recovered.  Lentil is currently 3-4 lbs, and probably will be 6-7 at maturity (no guarantees!)  He is black and white and cute all over!

Lentil is a typical puppy….but a well behaved one!  He is loving but not demanding.  He isn’t destructive, although he does enjoy moving the rugs around!  He is very affectionate, gives lots of kisses, pays attention, is very responsive and very smart.  He is well on his way to being potty trained, as he is going mostly on the pp pad with occasional misses!  Like all puppies, he is very active and while he can jump on the couch or the bed…he can’t jump down!  He is so tiny, he isn’t able to climb the stairs yet, but he is a determined little man.  

We typically like our puppies to go to homes where there is another young, small dog to show them the way.  We have determined that he would be happiest with another canine companion!  AND….Lentil’s foster is acclimating him to cats, so cats would be okay, too!  Kids over 10 yrs old welcomed.

Due to Lentil having been ill, we are waiting to vaccinate him; and he is too tiny to neuter.  He is currently 15 weeks old (estimate) and he will be vaccinated and chipped in the next couple of weeks.  He will be adopted on a s/n agreement, with a $250 deposit which will be refunded after he has been neutered.  His adoption fee will be $600.  He will not go home until the last Sunday in April.
