Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Schnauzer / Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed (long coat)
Weight: 8 lbs
Estimated Birthdate: 6/1/2008
Fence Needed: No
Location: Foster Home in Rocky Mount, NC
Reason for being in rescue: Leo was originally found as a stray and landed at a shelter matted and thin. CPR pulled him from the local shelter, got him healthy, and he was adopted by a loving family. Sadly, life changed and major health challenges forced Leo's family to surrender him back to CPR.
Special Needs: None noted
What kind of home would be best for me: Leo is a lap dog. He wants a home with a retired family where someone will take him for daily walks and give him lots of snuggles. Leo has been the only dog for the past 3 years and would love to find a home where he will once again be the king of the castle
What is my personality like: Leo is such a sweet, affectionate little man! He is curious, playful and gentle. He gets along with all animals and all humans, and loves to be around both. He will play for hours with tennis balls, rope toys or stuffed toys.
He is crate trained and rides well in the car. He is intelligent and willing to please. Leo has a moderate energy level, and knows when it is time to be calm- He loves to lay in your lap or beside you on the couch!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Estimated Birthdate: 6/1/2008
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.
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.
