Facts about Leo

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Leo is a 3 to 4 year old, male pitbull. He is a big teddy bear. His foster says, "He lies flat out like a handsome, shiny, black frog. He's sometimes called Big Head Fred because of the size of his noggin. He's so gentle with that sweet paw action. And his eyes can melt the most stubborn heart. Leo is love. Through and through. He's gone from being quite rough and tumble -- a bully in a china shop -- to being so, so chill. Leo's the perfect house dog/cuddlebug."

He is eager to please. He's crate trained and not a chewer. He's great on walks! As you can see in the video link he doesn't mind the dogs behind the fences that are trying to get his attention. He looks to you to check in every so often. He's a pleasure to walk.

He's been fine with female dogs his size. Shows too much interest in little yapper dogs if they are high energy. If they are calm he doesn't seem to notice them. We are saying no to cats to be on the safe side since he does seem to have a tendency to look for squirrels and wild bunnies. He is fostered with other large dogs and gets along with them.

We pulled him from the shelter where he was about to be euthanized. He was rough then showing signs of a hard life. His coat was not in good shape, had bad ear infections, was very thin. Now he is healthy and his coat is shiny. He's now a very happy & appreciative boy.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please fill out an application on our website, LAAR.ORG. Go to the page titled "Adoption Process" for the application.

Our adoption process includes an application, home check, adoption contract and adoption fee.

We do not "sell" animals. We re-home animals and we ask for a donation to be made to our organization to help cover some of the costs we incur when we take on an animal. Quite often the animals are not in the best of health so they are immediately taken to the vet and given whatever medical attention is necessary. *The adoption fee for dogs is $300-500 and for cats/kittens is $175.
