What a guy. You don't see many hounds like Leon. For one thing, he's on the small side for a guy. On the other he has a Roman nose. Seriously. It doesn't show in this pix but in profile (see blog), his nose is very short and kind of humped and he has an underbite, so his canines stick out like tusks. Honest! He's a sweet fellow, easy going. Maybe too smart for his own good as he's already knocked the baby gate down a couple of times and hopped up on the sofa and flopped over like he's the Lord of the Manner.

We are a chapter of Greyhound Pets of America, the nation’s largest single-breed adoption group. Each year about 19,000 greyhounds retire from U.S. tracks and are in need of homes. GPAN finds homes for over 100 of these greyhounds every year.
