Poor Leo finds himself back in BBR's care after an unfortunate change in his family's dynamic. Leo is a great a dog; he sleeps well in a crate, is entertained for hours by chew bones called "chomps" (he even knows what you mean when you say chomps), is house trained and follows his owner everywhere. He does pretty well off-leash, too. As with all dogs (and humans for that matter) he does have his quirks, though. Leo is not a fan of children and will growl and act very "strange" around them so he would do best with a couple who doesn't have children or plan to have children (or has older children who are grown).
Leo loves to play and will get bursts of energy where he is full force goofball for about 15 minutes and then he calms down. His favorites games are tug of war and fetch. He loves belly rubs and being with his people. He gets very excited when he hasn't seen you for a few hours and he will make sure you know that he missed you. His strength and excitability is another reason why he should go to a home without small children.
Please consider sponsoring Leo to help with medical bills.
Intake info: Leo was surrendered to BBR initially with a note that just said "unwanted gift". He was adopted out in May 2016 from BBR but returned after his family situation changed and his parents couldn't move with him.
Thank you to my sponsors!:
