Facts about Leo

  • Breed: Welsh Corgi
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Leo was left in the Miami Dade Shelter in Florida. This place is well known by rescues as being one of the worst in the country. Poor Leo was taken there when his people couldn’t afford to have a huge tumor removed on his hip. So there he was in one of the worst of the worst shelters and in need of medical assistance.

The shelter posted him incorrectly as a 10 year old Welsh Terrier. What a bunch of geniuses!!! He’s actually a 7 or 8 year old Corgi! So because of the incorrect posting no Corgi rescues would take him because although they realized he was a Corgi the thought he was 10 with issues. Their words were “we’d rather save our resources for a more adoptable dog”. WOW!!! That’s some rescue! So we were asked once again by the corgi community to save Leo’s life. Of course we said yes with no hesitation. Just like always.

So Leo had the tumor removed. It was the size of a grapefruit. It’s called a Neurofibroma and is a tumor formed on a nerve cell sheath, frequently symptomless but occasionally malignant. Thankfully Leo’s is not malignant but because of the edges in this type of tumor not being clean it will most likely come back. We are now looking into other options and want to check into Cryogenic surgery for him. He's healing from the last surgery pretty well.

Leo will not be available for adoption until we have a plan of treatment for him.

If you would like to sponsor Leo please consider making a monthly donation towards his care.

Leo is located in Freeport NY and is spending his days playing fetch and playing fetch and playing fetch and and and……….. LOL!

About Our Best Friends Animal Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of animal lovers that came together so that we could save more of the voiceless animals that haven't gotten a good start.
All of us work at least one full time job and the rest of our time goes for the little souls that need our help.
We are as dedicated to each other as we are to the animals. Together we are making a difference. We have volunteers who help us on all levels but always need more help socializing and helping with taking dogs to vet appointments and picking them up. Going to the groomer and much more.
There are some who handle networking, mass emailing, etc. Others who help on Facebook. We have fosters who take in our rescues for a period of time, so that a rescued dog learns to live in a household and so that we can get to know the fur baby a little better so they can be placed in their proper furever home ~ also the fosters assist us in getting the animals OUT of the shelters faster & more efficiently. There are also those wonderful people who do volunteer transport !!! That's so so important !! and everyone else, who just likes our page or shares our pictures ~ we are ALL in this together.

Our Adoption Process...

An adoption application must be completed before any meet and greets or extensive information is given out. All of our animals are home fostered and we must be diligent about protecting our volunteers. Our adoption fees range from $0 to $500 and are determined on a per case basis. Our puppies that are to young to be spayed or neutered will be adopted out and a contract will be signed committing the adopter to perform the procedure as soon as the puppy is deemed ready by a veterinarian. This will be done no later than 6 months of age.
Our animals are rescues. We sometimes don't know everything about the animal as they are usually in our care for a short period of time. We disclose EVERYTHING are aware of at the time of adoption. We cannot be responsible for an issue that occurs weeks or months or years after the animal is adopted.
Opening your heart and your home to a rescue animal is a commitment. It is not for as long as the dog is easy to care for, or, for until you get tired of it. It is for the life of that animal. We will be very selective as to who we allow to adopt our angels. We expect you to be open and honest during the adoption process.
