My story

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

Adoption Fee $200

Leo has a tough story that unfortunately we will never have access to every chapter to.
He is a 4-5 year old Cane Corso mix. We think.
He was in Wichita on the euthanasia list for heartworms. He received treatment last spring and is heartworm NEGATIVE!!
He was found as a stray last February and his owner did not reclaim him.
Leo has exhibited a fair amount of fear reactivity. He bonds hard with the right person but he needs a routine. Change can be upsetting for anyone but it seems to hit a sensitive guy like this harder than usual. He needs to know what to expect. Leo NEEDS to be able to trust that you know better than he does. If you're uncertain, he is too. Leo is big on the communication scale. He is extremely expressive with his body language, eyes, ears, face, noises. He's giving us a lot of hints that people who hold things up in his direction are scary. People that corner him are very scary.
I can't say I blame him obviously but it's been a long road to get to know him and gather information.
Leo is looking for a specific stubborn, strong willed, kind, understanding person with no kids or animals. He has been indifferent towards many animals but within the home he is very protective of his things. He loves car rides, couch lounging and to sun bathe in the backyard. I know this type of home is a STRONG reach so we need YOUR HELP!!! Share far and wide please, please!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All of our animals are housed in foster homes, so once an application is approved, the adopter will be contacted for a meet and greet. If all goes well, the adopter signs an adoption contract and is allowed a short trial. Once the trial is complete, and the adoption goes through, the adoption fee will be processed. Adoption fees vary by dog.
