Leo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Leo's Story...
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.

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization. Adoption process includes an adoption contract and home check. Adoption fee for dogs are $300 - 500 and for cats are $175. All of our animals are fixed, vaccinated, and chipped.

If you are interested in adopting or have further questions, please fill out the application at LAAR.ORG under the Adoption Process page.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leo, a Los Angeles Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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 Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
