When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

1. Why are you giving up your dog?

2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?

3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?

4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?

5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?

6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?

7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?

8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?


Leilanie is currently available for adoption at San Francisco SPCA. Leilanie loves playing fetch and she's a pro at it. She will take off after the ball and politely bring it back and drop it at your feet. She is kind-hearted but can take a moment to warm up to new folks. She would love to escape city life to a slower-paced community where there isn't so much scary traffic.
Leilanie has been with SF SPCA since October after being adopted from us as a puppy in 2019. In her previous home, she lived with children (including an infant) and was the only pet.
We have noticed that Leilanie is hand shy, for that reason she would be best in a home without small children. She is also leash and barrier reactive to other dogs, but she has been working on skills to decrease reactivity. Her previous owner took her to dog parks, but she was said to avoid other dogs. We recommend that she not be taken to dogs parks.
