Leo is a 3 year old male Cross-Breed. He is currently in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. This handsome chap is Leo who is described as a protective, but very lovely and good boy. Leo can be playful and loves to destroy his soft toys! Leo loves attention and affection from people he trusts.
However, Leo loves his sleep and when he is tired, he likes to be left alone otherwise he can be a little grumpy. Leo’s favorite thing to do is go for long walks! When on walks, Leo will ignore strangers and is often more bothered about exploring. Leo currently is very obedient when with his male owner, however, if he is with anyone else, he can sometimes be reactive.
Leo, therefore, needs someone who is able to set out firm boundaries. Due to unpredictable behaviors, Leo is looking for an experienced and quiet adult-only home. Leo dislikes male dogs, however, is great with any female dog he meets. Leo could potentially share his new home with a female dog with slow, careful, and sensible introductions.
Leo could potentially share his new home with a dog-savvy cat with careful introductions and the ability to safely and fully separate if required. Leo currently wears a collar, harness, and lead with no issues. Leo is described by his current home as very good on walks, however, can be reactive to male dogs. This will require continual training and boundaries. Leo dislikes strangers to the home and can be very reactive when someone knocks at the door. This needs to be approached with sensible and slow introductions. Leo is not reactive to people he trusts and knows.
Fostering a rescue dog is not something to take on lightly, they need full commitment and a lot of work and patience to allow them to blossom. There may be many challenges to overcome so please ensure full commitment before applying. Leo is fully toilet trained. Leo very rarely uses his crate.
Leo has been destructive when left in the kitchen. Leo can be left for up to 3 hours maximum.
Please note, this may change in a new home. Leo can travel well in the car. Leo’s current home is willing to assist with transport, depending on the distance. We always advise sensible and slow introductions to family members and other pets.
