Leo is approximately 18 months old and a large crossbreed. He came to the branch at the beginning of May 2012 to find a new family, due to his previous owner’s ill-health.
He is a lovely boy with people but due to not being socialised very much is unsure of other dogs although he walks well with Pippa.
Leo needs someone with large dog experience and continue the training he’s been receiving as he can be very bouncy. Our volunteers have been working hard with Leo and his manners have improved vastly. He will sit, wait, lie down, roll over and offer kisses. He is a strong puller on a normal lead but we have been walking him with a canny collar which he walks lovely on.
Leo is turning into a beautiful dog that would make a wonderfull addition to a family. He is house trained, obedient and just loves his cuddles. He loves being around people and his attitude to other dogs is also improving (but we still feel he would be best as the only dog in the household). See below for video and update!
*Update July 7th*
Leo has always been a friendly boy but was very giddy when he first came in. My goodness, his manners have improved brilliantly! Even though he was excited at another visitor he managed to sit and wait while I opened his apartment door and attach his lead. As you can see on the video below he did have an excited bouncy moment but managed to sit and wait for toys to be thrown. He doesn’t fetch them back though – it seems the big tyre was far more interesting. He was also very interested in the staff while they went about their work, his tail wags for England when he sees someone! What a lovely handsome boy he is. Whoever adopts Leo will be very lucky indeed.
