Leon - Adopted on 4/4/2019

Age:  About 11 years
Gender:  Male
Breed:  Shih Tzu Mix


Leon is a sweet boy who absolutely loves people! He was understandably scared when he was in the shelter, but he blossomed once he went into a foster home in SC. His foster said he was the neighborhood ambassador! He seems to love everyone, human and dogs included. He is well-mannered, walks well on a leash, and does great in the car. He is house trained and does fine without being crated when home alone - he does not do well in a crate.

His temporary SC foster said, "He is such a love! Loves people and everyone he meets! He wags his tail and gets excited about everything. He loves to play with stuffies too and carries one around all the time. The cutest thing he does is lay on his back and play with his stuffie."

Leon also loves walks, snuggling, and playing fetch, though he does not always return the item he is fetching!
