About Leeo

American Staffordshire Terrier / Pit Bull
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

**ADOPTERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO DRIVE TO CHICAGO, POSSIBLY MORE THAN ONCE-- if you live too far, please do not inquire as animals will not be shipped** PLEASE READ descriptions in FULL before inquiring** Leo was on his last days at an open-door shelter before Famous Fido stepped in and saved his life. The shelter had contacted over 280 rescues to see if they could make space for Leo without any luck. His situation pulled at our heartstrings. He was desperate! Leo is an adorable, sweet, fun-loving dog, but he can be protective over his domain. Leo had an incident when a stranger entered his home and his former family surrendered him thereafter. Leo is not an aggressive dog, but he was put in an unfortunate, unpredictable and unsafe situation. We would love to find Leo a home that will protect him from such situations! He is a very cuddly boy and would make a great family member! We are ideally hoping to find an adult-only home for Leo, where he can be the only animal. Leo is incredibly smart, makes and holds fantastic eye contact for treats and is very food motivated. He'd thrive in an agility / training course with his great energy and attention to prizes! https://famousfidorescue.org/dog-adoption-application/ We ask that you DO NOT CALL US; we have a very high call volume handling emergencies with pets. However, if you have questions before submitting an application, please feel free to reach out to us via email at [email protected]
