About Leo

Adoption Fee: $280
Lhasa Apso / Poodle
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

*PHOENIX METRO AREA ONLY* Leo is a 7 year old, 22 pound Lhasa/poodle blend boy. He came to the rescue when his owner was unable to care for him. He will do best with owners who understand the Lhasa 'personality' which is a dog that is very strong-willed and it's been said that 'when a Lhasa Apso looks in the mirror, he sees a lion'. Leo will be a wonderful and loyal companion IF his new owners can establish a relationship of mutual respect - i.e. admiring his independent character while consistently enforcing your rules so that he respects you as well. His new owners will require patience, as it will take a while (maybe weeks) for him to get used to a new environment and once he does, he will be very loyal. Leo wants love and attention but is not usually a cuddler. His 'M.O.' is fairly vocal and often uses 'growling' not as a warning/don't touch me, but rather as an expression of his attitude. He has never bitten his previous owner or current foster, but the growling-type vocalization needs to be understood. He loves walks, running around in the backyard and he loves to sleep with his human. If his humans are strong leaders and exert matching energy (not overpowering or forceful behavior) he responds well. He will do best in a home with just his humans or possibly another submissive (but not younger) dog. He will not likely get along with young children and would do best in a home with only adults. With patience and mutual respect, this lovely boy will reward his owners with unmatched loyalty and love! Leo is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $280.
