Leo is a very enthusiastic, playful, and goofy shepherd mix. He is an amusing dog. He loves walks, runs, hikes, and especially fetch! He is quite the athlete, his fetch skills are next-level. He’s a super affectionate dog who thrives with regular TLC. He’s the type of dog you can take out for a fetch session on the beach and then come home and curl up with. Leo is VERY food-driven and exceptionally intelligent making him a breeze to train. If there are treats involved he picks up new tricks in minutes. He knows about a dozen commands including all the basics. He has been trained to walk with a slack leash. He has also gone through group training as well as working with individual trainers. His big issue was leash aggression but that has been mostly smoothed out. He is 100% house-trained. Leo has a ton of energy and needs regular exercise and mental stimulation. I wouldn’t describe him as a low-maintenance dog but he is definitely worth the effort as he is truly an incredible guy. With enough activity and affection, he is a total sweetheart and a breeze to own. You’ll know, when he’s in his happy place, he will look up at you with the sweetest softest eyes…it will melt your heart. He can get a bit anxious and stir-crazy without enough activity, so he’s a better fit for an active individual or someone with a yard he can romp around in. A lot of work has been put into getting Leo adoption ready and he is there! His transition into your home should be relatively seamless. This dog has had a rough life, he was abandoned and has been bounced around ever since. He deserves a chance at happiness and we hope you can be the one to give that to him 🙂
