ADOPTED ON 01-23-16 – Leo is big, he is beautiful and he has survived hell! Our boy in this case is Leonard (Leo), a magnificent German shepherd of about 2-3 years, a wonderful silver and black coat, a weight of 85 pounds going on 100 and super strong desire to live. Typically we do not stress the back grounds of our rescues but in Leo’s case it is essential so that his new owners can understand what an incredible young man that is being placed in their care.

Leo’s story is simply this, he survived locked in a cage for 10 days without food or water. When found Leo could not get up or raise his head but you could still see the beauty of life in his eyes. Leo today is a strong, loving dog that though physically healed still bears the marks of his psychological abuse. Our boy is quite loving and very gentle but he prefers female humans over males, he seems to build trust faster with the ladies. Once Leo decides that he can trust you he will follow his person around constantly and revel in receiving praise. We have worked with Leo for an extended time and we feel that we represent his nature very well: he gets along great with other dogs, he is fascinated with children, he is great on the leash, he knows his base commands and he is totally dedicated to “his” person. Leo might not be for everyone but for the right person he will be spectacular.
