LEO

Gentle Giant

Great Dane | 110lbs (underweight) | Male | 2yrs old | Good with dogs | Unknown with cats | Unknown with kids | Crate trained | House trained | Fostered in Guelph, ON


Vetting: Leo is a sweet soul who came to us to hopefully get to the bottom of his recent medical issues. As you can see, he’s quite underweight because he’s been dealing with chronic vomiting and diarrhea for a few months. Unfortunately his family wasn’t able to do an extensive vet work up, so we are very glad he’s with us now!

Best quality: Leo is absolutely lovely with people! He loves people of all sizes but he also forgets his size and strength sometimes.

Worst quality: Thinks that he is a lap dog (not a bad quality for some people but for others, he could squish us)

BONUSES:

* Although Leo had some issues with weight lose before coming to us, he has been gaining consistent weight so far and once he is at his ultimate weight, he will likely be between 130-140lbs.

** Leo is great in the house. He does need room as he is a big boy, but if given the space, he can actually make himself quite small.

NOTE:

* Leo has FOMO. He loves dogs and people but he does not know how to be independent yet and does not understand social cues from his dog friends without his human advocate (yet).

** Leo takes some time to settle in his crate but once he does, he does well and is able to do a full work day with no issues (especially with a well stuffed toy!

Leo is being fostered in Guelph, ON
