Leo

Leo

Leo is one handsome dude, with his glossy, smooth tricolored coat and boyish good looks. And that expression on his face? It’s Leo wondering if you’re the one who will take him home for a wonderful life together. Leo can just imagine those walks where you and he explore the adventures along the way and get your outdoor exercise — so healthy and fun for all! Then he pictures you both settled in afterward, relaxed on the couch, doing not much of anything.

A Treeing Walker Coonhound mix, now nine, Leo is hoping to get lucky — after being pretty unlucky for a while. He was rescued from a dog hoarder and taken in by Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals in Radnor. It’s been a long wait, but he’s still confident that someone will come along soon and see how special and deserving he is. He holds back at first until he gets to know you, but once you know Leo, you’re bonded forever. He loves his dear friends with all his heart.

His other favorite thing: after a walk, flopping lazily in the sun and falling asleep – he’s working on his tan! Leo is a great companion — sweet and delightfully goofy. When he runs, he looks like he’s all legs and makes the Francisvale volunteers who walk him laugh affectionately. Can’t you just see it? You and Leo? He’d like to be your only pet; so here’s hoping! Let’s get started!
