Meet Leroy, a 9-year-old black-and-white border collie mix weighing 87 pounds. A staff and volunteer favorite, Leroy is a gentle giant and just the sweetest boy ever. He walks well on a leash, rides great in the car and as long as you take him out regularly, he does all his business outside. He even knows some commands such as sit and shake. Leroy is neutered and microchipped and has all his age-appropriate vaccinations. His adoption fee is only $25. Stop by and meet Leroy soon. #20411
