APPROX. AGE: 1 year old
HISTORY: When Leo was rescued, he was suffering from an unknown skin problem that seemed to get worse and worse as time went on. He was placed into a boarding facility as no treatment could be found, with each new medication, food change, or other attempt first seeming to cure him, but later regressing once again. After several months in the boarding kennel and seeing no overall improvement, his family decided to surrender him to Open Paws Jeddah (a volunteer run animal rescue organization in Saudi Arabia). who had him vaccinated and microchipped. He was then taken out of the boarding kennel and placed in a foster home, where with more human contact and a lot of TLC, Leo has begun to show drastic improvements and OPJ is confident he will make a full recovery.
TEMPERAMENT: Leo is an extremely playful and energetic dog, despite his troubled past. He loves snuggles and attention, and still acts very much like a puppy. He responds well to basic commands, and is very food motivated. Leo is great on a leash, house trained, and loves exploring.
BEST MATCH: An adopter who will show him the good life and take him on lots of adventures by day, while relaxing and snuggling on the couch by night.
FAVORITE THINGS: Playing, exploring, snuggling, adventuring.
