Meet Leia

AgePuppy BreedLabrador Retriever/Blue Heeler Sexfemale

Leia’s mother is a 62 lb. black lab whose name is Padme and is looking for a home. We were told the Dad was a Heeler. Some of the pups certainly have the coloring you might expect from a Heeler but two look very similar to each other and are mostly brown. There may have been more than one Dad so we can only guess at their breeds. We only know that they are playful, adorable puppies. They are learning to go nicely into their crate to sleep all night and just starting to learn to sit for a treat. That is going a little slowly with three of them jumping for the treat at one time. They of course have very sharp little puppy teeth right now and may not be suitable for small children who may not like getting little bites. They have not been around children in their foster home but they are very friendly and we believe they will love everyone. Leia has been dewormed, and has received the Distemper-Parvo combination vaccine, Kennel Cough vaccine. She has now received her second puppy vaccine and gotten microchipped. Leia has not been neutered yet and therefore according to VA state law cannot be adopted out of any county that is not contiguous to Bedford County. Her adoption fee is $200, which will also include her spay at one of the clinics we work with. For more information, please call the Bedford Humane Society at 540-586-6100, or go to to fill out an adoption application.

How to Adopt


Visit her at Bedford Humane Society to get acquainted. Call or go to their website to familiarize yourself with what you'll need to begin the adoption process. Remember, adoption is a lifetime commitment, one full of love and reward but also financial and personal responsibility. Take the time to prepare, commit, and fall in love for a lifetime.
