Name: Leo
Age: 8 years old
Gender: Male
Location: Houston, TX
Adoption Fee: $250

We were told that Leo is a Chinese Crested/Corgi mix but he looks more like a Terrier to us. He came to us with a group of 23 dogs from a hoarding seizure. Leo did not know love prior to coming to the rescue. He is very timid and shy. When meeting new people, Leo runs to a crate and tries to ignore you. If you reach in and pet him, he’s okay with it but you can see in his face that he’s very nervous. Leo has not shown any aggression at all, just fear and shyness.

Leo has come a LONG WAY! He needs an experienced adopter who will give him love, affection and most importantly, patience. He has learned that love is a good thing! Leo also needs one or two other dogs to continue learning how to be a dog. He thrives when he gets to act like a “normal” dog. Young children will likely make him extremely nervous so an adult home would be best.

Leo truly wants to be a part of a family, you can see it in his actions. Please consider adding Leo to your family!

If this listing is up, please do not send us an email asking if Leo is available. It will be removed when he is adopted. PetFinder inquiries are not guaranteed to be returned.
