Hi, my name is Leon. I am about 2yrs old and a Lab Cross I came into the rescue with my friend Java. I am full grown and weigh 73lbs. I am a large dog, tall and slender.
I was recently taken down to the river to cool off and it must have been my first time because it took me a few minutes to figure it out but when I did oh boy was it fun!! I hope my new family can take me swimming often or setup a doggy pool in the backyard.
I play well with other dogs but I do not like cats. Children are great but it would best best if they were older as I can still be mouthy and my large size could be intimidating to the little ones. I am best suited for an active home but one that also has the time and patience to help me fine tune my manners and leash skills. I was likely never walked on a leash before so it is new to me and I'm learning the pulling is not nice and that being corrected isn't so bad as it makes the humans happy. I'm a pretty social boy so a home where people are around a lot to hang out with or one where they take me on their adventures is ideal. When I'm home alone I'm okay to hang out in a crate but I'd love to have some interactive toys or puzzles to help pass the time.
