W e have neighbors who are completely irresponsible and, frankly, awful. Over the few years we have been here, we have rescued 10 dogs from them and placed them in loving homes. Most recently this sweet boy, Leo showed up on our property. They came and reclaimed him 5 times. He has now been with us for over a month. It is now clear we need to find him a forever home.
Leo is sugar sweet and LOVES hugs. He leans his big, sweet head as far into you as possible ♥
He showed up with another dog so we assume he is good with other dogs. He's smart and very good and quiet. He is also young (around 1 1/2). We have neutered him and had him tested for heartworm (negative-yay!). The one and only negative about this little smartie is he can clear 6-8 foot fences. So, he needs a home that can manage that. With that, he will be the most wonderful, loving family member. ♥ He would also be GREAT at agility or scent work, because he's so smart and wants to please.
We believe Leo to be a Pointer/Lab mix. AKC describes says about pointers "... in his expression are the loyalty and devotion of a true friend of man"
This is so true of Leo.
