Greetings! I am Leo.
My journey with TIGR began many months ago when I found myself in a local shelter and heartworm positive. My foster mom scooped me up and started heart worm treatment immediately. The treatment is complete and in a few months I will go back to the vet to make sure I am clear of those nasty buggers.
I can't remember my birth date but my best guess is I am young 8 years old with an attractive tan and white coat weighing in at a sleek 13lbs. My face looks a little like a lion. I guess that's why they call me Leo. I get along very well with other dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds. If there is a lot of activity in the yard I like to police the play with my bark or give chase. Are you a foodie? I am too. I prefer to eat my meals alone out of my own bowl. My crate and house are kept clean because I am smart and know the best potty spots in the yard.
My favorite daily activity is snuggling in your arms or next to you and/or another iggy in bed. If you would like to meet me please fill out an application and contact TIGR.
