Pet’s Information

Pet’s Name: Leelo


Leelo is the sweetest, goofiest boy! He’s very loyal to his close circle, and his tail is always wagging. Leelo’s perfect day would include running after tennis balls, finding gigantic sticks, being chased around the house and a snuggly nap on the couch with his family. Leelo also loves hikes and swimming. He plops into the river near his house any chance he gets! Leelo is neutered, potty trained and up-to-date on vaccines. He turned one on March 24th and he is about 53 pounds. 

Leelo is high-energy and needs a lot of attention. He’s learned to be left alone at home for up to 10 hours, but he’s happiest when he’s with his family. He gets anxious with a lot of arrivals and departures and does best when left for one chunk of the day. He currently has free rein of the apartment and has not destroyed anything when left alone.

Leelo has made a lot of progress with his anxiety in the last 7 months and is getting more comfortable walking by people on the sidewalk. He is on two anxiety medicines which have been a great help to him.  When he’s anxious, he can get mouthy and jump up on his family. He also loves to play tug of war with his leash. When Leelo doesn’t have an outlet for his anxiety at home, he starts to chew anything he can get his paws on (bones are a big help!).

Leelo is very wary of new people and does have a bite history. He’s been through a lot in his short life and needs a family who is willing to go at a very slow pace. He’s most afraid of tall people in baggy clothes, children and loud noises. Given his bite history and fear of children, he should be placed with adults only. Leelo wants to be in his family’s vicinity at all times, but he does not always want pets. 

He is dog selective and has a couple close dog friends that he loves to play with. Leelo previously lived with one cat, but I haven’t witnessed him interacting with any myself. 

He has been working hard to learn “place,” and we’ve been doing a lot of practice with a “calm settle” around the house. He also knows sit, down, paw, touch, and find it. He’s been doing well with recall as well. 

Leelo recently went on a 6 hour road trip! He loves the car and hops right in when he hears “let’s go for a ride!” He went all the way up to Boston and did well staying in an Airbnb for a few days.

Leelo would be a wonderful addition to a family that is the right fit for him. He needs training and a lot of patience, but he has so much love to give.

Reason for re-homing:

Leelo is a great dog who is very loyal to his family. Unfortunately, his anxiety and aggression issues are too much for me to handle on my own. He would do better in a two-person home so that his needs could be shared between two owners, and he would also thrive in less crowded environment (he’s currently living in an apartment).
