Leo is a 2 year old lab mix and is about 66 pounds. He came to us as an owner surrender. Leo is housetrained and alerts when he needs to go outside. Leo is nervous around new men so he requires a slow introduction. This is increasingly common as we come out of the covid years as many pets were not socialized. Leo prefers to be outside most of the time but loves to be in a lap, giving kisses just as much. He barks at other dogs but not in a mean way. If you have another dog we encourage a slow meet/greet so Leo knows he is not in danger. He is housebroken, enjoys mealtimes, and sniffing around the yard. Leo does not like cats and a home with cats will be an automatic no for him. But he loves small dogs and children as that is what he was raised with! Leo just wants a chance at his furever home so he can give all of his love and get lots of belly rubs in return. Leo's adoption is $175. This covers spay/neuter, rabies, bordetella, distemper, flea/tick prevention, heartworm prevention, and microchip. All dogs can be visited at our shelter in Monticello, IA at 22407 Business Highway 151.
