Hello everybody! My name is Lena, but if you’re sweet to me you can call me “Lean Bean.” I’m a five year old Aussie-Border Collie gal, that just loves life and my people!

I’m into many things since becoming a foster dog, and while I’m learning, I’m also having lots of fun doing it! I’ve been refreshing my basic commands and learning some new tricks and strength exercises. I also really like puzzle games. I like to play fetch with discs and balls. I always give it my all to do my best. I really love hiking and trail walking with my foster brother and sister – I can now keep up more than ever! Sometimes on walks, I see cars, and I am practicing looking and listening to my human for direction (which leads to pets and treats) and not paying attention to those pesky things! 

When I am training inside, I have a game with my foster mom where I am learning not to use my paws to grab things I want (including my HOOMANS). It’s a really fun game for me because I always win and get lots of pets and cuddles!

Sometimes, I get to go for car rides, and let me tell you, do I ever love a good car ride. By love, I mean I just get overly excited about things around me, and I just want to know it all! My foster parents let me stay in a crate to help me relax and enjoy the ride.

As for my overall fitness, currently I’ve lost over twenty pounds in my hopes of becoming much more athletic and energetic. Let me tell you, I’m really fast now. Can you imagine how fast I’ll be when I get to my ideal weight?

Have I mentioned how much I love other dogs? I recently started visiting doggie daycare and it is SO much fun to meet and play with all of the dogs while I’m there.

Lena is looking for an active home committed to continuing her progress toward her ideal weight and with regular interaction with other dogs. Due to her occasional bossiness, she will only be placed in a home with respectful, dog savvy children.

Lena is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on her vaccines. She is fostered in Fuquay Varina, NC. Her adoption fee is $300.
