Leo is a handsome American bulldog cross who came into our care through no fault of his own, as his previous owners were unable to give him the time he needs. Leo is a really loving, gentle and loyal dog who simply needs a patient and calm home. He can lack confidence with new people, more so around men as opposed to women but with slow introductions he will soon be your best friend, he is a big playful and loveable softy! Balls and chicken are the way to Leo's heart and are a great way to make friends and interact. Once you have made friends all he wants to do is play with you or have a big fuss! He has a silly side to him which is very cute to see.
He is a playful character and love's to play fetch... A lot! He knows drop, leave, sit and paw commands. Around new dogs Leo prefers his own space, he will ignore them on his walks - he will be best suited to being the only pet in the home, with a family that has older, confident children and a home with a garden. Leo walks well on the lead wearing a harness, generally to heel and doesn’t pull despite his size. However, his size and strength must be taken into consideration when applying as he is a large breed and weighs 50kg!
We suggest any potential adopters to come and meet Leo at the centre to start a relationship with him before they take him home. If Leo sounds the perfect dog you, please fill out and submit the interest form below. We would love to hear from you and discuss Leo further.
