Let’s get Leon Adopted! 3 year old Belgian Shepard, Sheepdog, German Shepard Mix. Over 1 year in the shelter.
Meet Leon, a Belgian Shepard, Sheepdog, German Shepard mix. Isn’t he a gorgeous boy! He’s been looking for his forever home for over a year now. He shouldn’t have to spend his young adult life in a kennel. Leon did have a very good start to life. As a young dog he survived on his own for months until he was captured in a humane trap, by the dog warden. He was then taken to Tri-County Animal Rescue Center in Shippenville, PA.
Leon has a deformed rear foot, that he sometimes favors, and doesn’t use, when he’s out playing in the play yard. But it doesn’t slow him down at all.
Once Leon gets to know, and trust you he is a perfect gentleman, taking treats gently, getting hugs and rubs. He likes to play fetch with his ball. He comes when he’s called. And Leon is a quiet boy in his kennel.
However, Leon is a real diamond in the rough. He can be a bit loud, jumpy and rather boisterous when meeting new people though. You likes to save his best behavior for those he loves. Pretending to be a lion needing taming, rather than the good boy he really can be.
He needs a patient, understanding forever person or family willing to work with him to earn his trust. To be patient until they get to see his best behavior. Someone willing to visit him regularly before taking him home. The forever family willing to work with this young boy will be richly rewarded with the love and devotion of a very handsome, smart and playful dog.
