He is a happy-go-lucky sort of guy!
A great dog to do pet therapy with, all you need to do is some basic obedience and he could pass the dog therapy test and you can take him to nursing homes and such. Teach him some tricks and how much fun would that be!
He loves to play with toys, balls are his favorite. This is good as he has a lot of energy.
We don’t know who Leo belonged to before, but we figure he probably darted out a door and then found himself in a strange land. He is a door darter so here it goes: fenced in yard is a must and being able to watch the other doors is a must.
What to do with a door darter? Well, you can put up a baby gate between the screen door and the big door or a baby gate somewhere in the home which keeps him from the door that goes to a non fenced in area. You can also work with him to sit whenever he is at the door. It’s a training issue to resolve a bad habit he learned in a previous home.
Leo weighs in at 10 pounds, more or less and is about 3-4 years of age.
He is mostly house-trained but needs to be watched initially. When we first brought him home he marked the first couple days, but so did our other male dog who really should know better! Now that Leo has been neutered this is becoming less of an issue and both dogs are doing much better. Hopefully, Leo has learned and will not mark in his new home but he is a dog and many male dogs tend to mark initially. Again, training issue.
Leo loves other dogs and enjoys playing with other dogs. No training issues here!
He is pretty tolerant, I was able to trim the hair around his eyes with no problems.
We are working on crate-training. He still barks and whines initially but quiets down after a few minutes or after a little spray with the water bottle.
We are teaching him to sit and stay.
We are not sure how he is with cats or children but assume okay.
He’s really a pretty good dog and just wants to play or be on a lap.
Leo is available for adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment.
