Let's play! Leon here, ready to be your silly, snuggly best furry friend for life! I am a good blend of playful and restful: while I love to play with my doggie friends (I am submissive and "listen" to other dogs well to adjust to their playstyle and behavior), I also loooove to cuddle and will burrow into your jacket so I can get closer to you. Since I am still young, I have some puppyish manners such as jumping when excited and counter surfing, so I would do best with older children for now until I have more training. But the good news is that I am very smart and highly trainable: I love treats and want to please my people so I listen when told no and redirected to more appropriate behavior. I am potty and crate trained already and cannot wait to attend training classes with you to see how much more I can learn. If you have a place in your home and heart for a sweet, adorable, and entertaining little buddy, I would love to volunteer for the position! You can meet me by filling out an adoption application today!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
