Leroy is a special little dog with a lovely temperament. He loves people, and is good with gentle kids, other dogs, cats (as long as they don’t run!), and stock.
Leroy enjoys daily exercise off the property, but he does have a knee joint that slips out of kilter a bit (common with Fox Terriers) so low impact exercise is best for him.
As with all Pound Hounds Rescue dogs, Leroy must be allowed inside the home (including to sleep) so he can really be part of the family. He will also require a comfy bed, quality food, and regular flea and worm treatments.
