Introducing Leche, a four-year old handsome male pitbull who loves to cuddle and be a lap dog. Leche does well in a crate when he is left home alone, and will be a good boy while you are out running errands. Leche walks well on a leash and knows "sit and "down commands. Leche loves his toys - especially his stuffie toys - and he will amuse you endlessly as you watch him tossing his toys in the air!

Leche has never lived in a home, and will need someone who is patient, and can help him adapt to home life. Leche likes to be a solo pup, and prefers the company of his humans. Leche is unsure about meeting new people, and he will need slow introductions. Leche is heartworm positive, but all that means is he will need a couple months rest at APA!'s expense. But that is no problem as Leche loves to be on the couch cuddling in your lap.

Leche has a look of hopefulness every time he looks at you, and he always looks like he is asking to be yours forever. Leche wants to be loved endlessly, and never forgotten. He is gentle and loyal as he wants nothing more than to be by your side. Will you give Leche his new, fur-ever home? Come meet this amusing, lively, loyal and gentle boy today, and show him how sweet humans can be!
Come meet your new best friend
