Meet Leo, a sweet and affectionate 10 year-old Cocker Spaniel who certainly acts much younger than his age. He was bought from a breeder as a puppy but recently relinquished to a shelter by his owner who said he no longer had time to care for Leo. Leo’s pic was from his time in the shelter but we’ll be adding pics from his foster home soon. Leo is not letting his abandonment get him down and is making the most of every day and the second chance he’s been given. He’s now in a foster home enjoying loads of attention and the company of other foster dogs and kitties too. His foster mom reports that Leo is a VERY happy guy who loves to eat and have his belly rubbed. She reports that he’s not at all nippy like some Cockers can be. He is housetrained, crate-trained, and knows the sit command too. Leo loves to play with toys but his foster mom reports that he can be a bit possessive of toys, food, and his people when around other dogs. He does respond well to verbal correction though so should be fine with other calm dogs in his new home. Leo is currently in a foster home in the Cincinnati area but will be moving up to Northeast OH on Nov 11. Leo is a little on the chubby side at about 30 pounds currently so would do well with fewer snacks and more exercise in his new home. His adoption fee is $150. Leo is neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including the bivalent influenza vaccine, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Leo. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
