Brooklyn, NY – Looking for a family dog that is very possibly smarter than you? With his Border Collie super intelligence and his Labrador Retriever friendliness, Leo may well be that dog! This incredibly cute 2.5 year old neutered male dog is looking for the best home ever. He’s so good with everyone he meets, from other other dogs to people of all ages and sizes.

If dogs were placed as diplomats, Leo would be a shoe-in. He’s that friendly and charming. He is so eager to please, happy, funny, cute, and very engaging. He is also very well behaved, and already knows quite a few commands. He is house trained, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. You could probably even teach him to help you with household chores!

Leo is very much loved by his owner. She had planned to be his forever owner, but life threw her a curve-ball in the way of a relationship break up. Now she is alone trying to give Leo the time, attention, exercise and care that he needs and deserves. Unfortunately with her job schedule and living in a Brooklyn apartment, Leo is not getting what he needs, and it just isn’t fair to him. Out of deep love for this amazing dog, she is hoping to find him the right home so that he can be given everything he needs in life.

Leo’s perfect home would be with owners who own a home with a securely fenced yard. Ideally they would be home most of the time, active, and die-hard dog lovers. He would love a doggie friend or two, and some great kids to devote himself to. He has not been around cats, but would probably be fine, so long as they are accepting of him

Please offer Leo the loving, forever home he needs and deserves today.


There is a $150 adoption/rehoming fee. All supplies will be included.

He is very loving, sweet, playful, and friendly. He is the dog park “greeter”, always going to greet every dog and person that enters the dog park. He plays well with EVERY dog. He does not ever show aggression. He knows all of the basic commands and is incredibly smart and gentle. He adores to play with his balls and chew on his bones. He’s not destructive in the house and does not have accidents indoors. He loves to cuddle with people more than anything, he is the biggest ham.

My ex-boyfriend and I adopted Leo as a puppy 2 years ago. We had plans to get married. 6 months ago, we broke up and I am in the process of relocating across the country and my ex is not able to take care of him because he lives in an apt that doesn’t allow pets. The only reason I am thinking of finding Leo a new home is because I am never home now and traveling for work most of the month and he is not getting the attention that he deserves. He’s an absolutely terrific dog and it is heartbreaking to have to think about finding him a new home.

About New York City Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
