Leonardo is so happy when he is playing fetch and getting attention! He loves people and kids!

Leo is a 63 pound Boxer mix, 1.5 years old, neutered, will be up to date on core vaccines, has been dewormed, and has been given flea prevention. He is housebroken, rides quietly in the car, loves fetch, is not destructive in his room or with his toys, and already knows “sit”. When he sees our cats, he barks and wants to chase them.

Please help us share this boy so we can find him a great home and so we can go rescue more dogs!
