Leo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Leo's Story...
Leo is an all around awesome kind of guy (not to mention a super handsome one too!). He adores everyone, human and canine, young or old. He's very friendly, always happy and loves to play. He loves the dog park...where he's famous. Seriously, we walk through the dog park and people call out, "hey there's Leo!" wherever we go. He, of course, thinks that is the best! The only thing he loves even close is snuggling - he is a champion snuggler. If you are on the sofa he is going to be next to you with his head in your lap. When you wake up in the morning...he will need a morning hug. If you've been gone for a while...definitely cuddle time. He is loose in the house while foster mom works and does great. He's housetrained at his foster home too. He sleeps in bed with his foster mom and the resident canines.

Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at http://www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday June 13, 2015, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leo, a Minneapolis Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Collie/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Collie/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
