My Story

Date into Rescue: 08/09/2019

Reason for being in rescue: Leo was found as a stray and landed at the animal shelter. CPR pulled him from the shelter.

Special Needs: None noted

What kind of home would be best for me: Leo is as easy-going as they come. He would be great for a retired couple looking for a constant companion or for a first time dog owner. He is great with other dogs, but would be happy as the only dog. He is cat-friendly.

What is my personality like: Leo is an absolute sweetheart! How this precious boy ended up wandering the streets, matted to the bone, is a mystery. He is kind and gentle and has a heart as big as the United States. Leo loves laps, cuddles, an occasional toy, and sunning on the back porch. 

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly

Tips and Tidbits: We affectionately refer to Leo as a modern-day Benjamin Buttons. When he arrived at the animal shelter, they estimated his age at 15 years based on his condition. A haircut, dental and neuter later, and our vets estimate that Leo is actually between 8-9 years old. 

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
