Print an adoption flyer for Leo!
Leo is a tiny little Pekingnese that came to us from Texas! He was taken to the pound by his owner because he has some skin and ear issues. Well, that's not acceptable! Leo weighs about 10 pounds and some of his paperwork says he is 6 years but our vet thinks he is more like 2 or 3 years old because his teeth are in such nice shape!
Leo is a funny little boy that loves to keep watch over his foster mom's office - whether she is in it or not! If a new dog wants to enter, Leo has to approve. He will bark at them and give his opinion! He loves to sleep in his crate or in a little dog bed. He is good about going outside IF you take him out. He does not go out voluntarily. He also uses pee pads in his foster home. He still needs work on his potty habits. Leo is ok with dogs, cats do not seem to bother him. Kids are ok but he is not one to play so please keep that in mind. He is not fond of the leash and will just sit instead of walking so he will need a fully fenced yard in his new home. (no invisible fences). Leo came to us with skin issues and a severe ear infection. He was seen by our vet and treated and his ears are all cleared up! He will need ongoing attention for his skin though. He needs frequent baths and to stay on a quality food (fish or beef based no chicken or lamb) Our vet feels that it's a food issue and it takes several months for things to clear up. Leo was also professionally groomed and will need regular grooming throughout his life.
Leo is neutered, up to date with vaccines, microchipped, flea/worm treated and tested neg. for heartworm. His adoption fee is $450
