A volunteer writes: Lenesha is a beautiful young lady. She has greaaat leash manners. She just loves to take an early Spring stroll. She could be strolling with you. Come meet this girl right away.
Another volunteer writes: So good-natured is Lenesha Dyce, it was easy to fall in love with this little blue star. It seems most of the staff and volunteers at Brooklyn shelter are already in her fan club! Although found as a stray, I can only imagine from her stunning grey coat andeasygoing outlook that she was well-loved and proudly cared for until just recently. And truly, she seems to take everything in stride. Easily leashed, she is eager to get her business done and walks with a spring in her step and easygoing wag of her tail. She takes treats ever so gently and immediately settles next to me for a body rub, curving herself into my hands happily and willing to linger with me as long as I like. This is clearly where she is most at home, and for a moment the shelter stress disappears, as she is a beloved friend once again. Having earned an utterly awesome ‘Average’ rating, Lenesha Dyce will fit into most every household, and with her love for life, she would like nothing better than to celebrate Spring with you! Please come meet Lenesha Dyce today in Brooklyn.
