My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Handsome Leo is patiently waiting for his new permanent walking buddy to walk through the shelter door and take him home! Leo is a friendly guy that is very treat motivated- staff and volunteers are working with him to help him learn some manners- he has to learn that not everyone wants to be greeted with a big hug! He can be strong on a leash but has made a lot of progress with walking calmly next to you. Leo would thrive in an active home dedicated to continuing his training. Due to his exuberance and strength we are not recommending that he live with young children at this time. If you are interested in learning more about Leo please give us a call at 516-869-6311 or email us at to request an adoption application.

*Reminder* We are currently facilitating adoptions through appointment only. If you arrive at the shelter without an appointment to meet a dog, we may not be able to assist you.

Please call the shelter (516-869-6311) during working hours (Mon. to Fri. 9AM-4PM; Sat. 10AM-4PM) for more information about this dog, the adoption process at the shelter, and to confirm availability. Please go to for more information about and directions to the shelter.
