Leo is thriving and growing! He has gained almost 10 lbs since joining our family last July. He is playful, and loving, and whatever the weather, he enjoys 2-3 mile walks daily. He is energetic and friendly, and loves greeting other neighborhood pups on his walks! Chloe, a Doodle, Sam, a Mastiff, and Kia, with whom he was fostered, are dogs he is most excited to meet. He has a special pal, Burgie, in Pewaukee, who he loves to visit because the two can run around in a large fenced in yard for what seems like hours. Late this past summer, we came to find that Leo loves the water, as he took a swim in Nemahbin lake!
We continue sessions with a trainer to help us help him improve on things like pulling on leash, and counter surfing.
In a few weeks, we are excited to take him on a road trip, to see our youngest. He’ll be meeting Bleu, a newly adopted four-year old rescue Greyhound, and Cali, a twelve-year old Lab.
We are eternally grateful to your staff and to the foster home for bringing Leo into our lives!

Leo is an energetic and curious puppy who is really doing well.
He does everything in a big puppy way. Now that he's comfortable in the house his personality is really showing. He loves playing with his toys - tossing them in the air, jumping after them, zooming around the room. If he decides to play with something inappropriate (slippers are a favorite) he is easy to redirect. He is totally into going on walks and is very curious about bunnies and squirrels. He loves flopping his big paws on our laps and cuddling with us.
We're still working on his isolation anxiety but have seen marked improvement in the past two weeks. He's been able to hang out in his crate, with our other dog in the room, for up to four hours without barking or whining.
He's going to make a great addition to a lucky family!

Leo is a very energetic puppy with a sweet temperament. He's adjusting to living in a house with a family, taking behavior clues from our other dog. He likes playing with a wide range of toys. We are working on not chewing on non-toy items (like shoes), height seeking, and consistent potty training.
The vet visit went really well - he is generally in pretty good health. He will be neutered next week.
