Leo-ADOPTED!

Leo is an adorable 13-14 week-old Lab mix male who was one of a litter of 5 unwanted pups born to a Yellow Lab mix female. The mama dog belonged to someone who could not afford to get her spayed so we were contacted to place the pups. We are also arranging for the mama dog to be spayed so she will not add any more pups to an already crowded world. Leo and his four siblings made the trip to Canine Lifeline where they’ve been enjoying life in foster homes over the last 5-6 weeks. They are now ready for adoption and eager to find homes of their very own. We don’t know who the pups’ dad is but all the pups have very different looks. It certainly looks like Leo might have some Shepherd in his family tree. These pups are all extremely sweet, affectionate, and loving. Leo loves wrestling and playing chase with his siblings so would certainly enjoy having a playful canine buddy in his new home. He also likes snuggling with his foster mom once playtime is over. Puppies need a lot of structure and routine as they work on their house manners. Leo will need a family who is home much of the time so that he can go outside every couple of hours during the day as he works on housetraining. He can’t be left alone for long workdays. At this point, he’s pretty good about using pee pads but now that the weather is warmer, he’s spending more time outdoors and getting the hang of doing his business outside. Leo weighs about 14 pounds currently and we expect he may be 50-60+ pounds once full-grown. His adoption fee is $400. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations for his age including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick 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. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age.
