Leona is a 10-month-old small/medium sized Beagle mix possibly with Whippet. As you can see from her pictures and videos, she's a sweetheart. She's wonderful with people, but skittish/shy until she gets to know you. She's eager to learn, very food motivated, playful, submissive and great with other dogs that are confident and her size or bigger than her.
She's very submissive, but definitely needs continuous training to keep building her confidence. She walks good on leash and does great on outings like going to pet stores or Home Depot. Lol Sweet girl was rescued off of the streets of Mexico City, starving and terribly emaciated so she still eats like it's her last meal ever, she eats fine next to my other dogs but I continue to monitor her. Leona is truly a sweet and beautiful girl, she just needs the love she's never had growing up on the streets. You can't blame her for being skittish until she knows you mean her no harm. Just imagine how many times as a baby she was kicked or shooed away by strangers on the streets. If you saw her before you would be amazed at the transformation. She is under TLC K9 Rescue's wings, and we are so thrilled to have her. 
Leona has been examined with a good health report, fully vaccinated, spayed and microchipped.  
Leona needs a family that will love her as much as she will love you her family unconditionally. If you live in San Diego or surrounding areas have a home with a yard and a minimum of a 6-foot fence and would love to adopt Leona then please complete our adoption application at tlck9rescue.org
