Thank you for considering an ARF dog. Most dogs receive several enquiries, and we aim to match the right dog to the right home so that they can enjoy a happy life together. If your enquiry is unsuccessful, rest assured that the foster carer has carefully based their decision on a thorough knowledge and understanding of the dog’s needs.

Leo is a very handsome boy with a beautiful nature to match his beautiful looks. He is very friendly to all, although can be timid at times (which is a bit of an Italian Greyhound trait). Once Leo gets to know you he is very happy and outgoing. We live on a farm with chooks, guinea fowl, horses, cattle, cats and other dogs, he has been terrific with everyone although is a little scared of our poddy calf (fair enough too :)

Leo has good basic training. He sits for pats and treats, walks well on lead and comes when called. Leo travels very well in the car. He sleeps quietly in a crate all night and is good in the house. Leo tries really hard to do the right thing and LOVES his food so is easy to train. He particularly loves to potter with you outside and generally hang out. Leo really loves his people.

Due to his sensitive nature and only just arriving into care Leo has displayed some low level separation anxiety so would best suit a home with another dog to keep him company. If there are children in his new family, it would be preferred that they would be quieter children as he would do best in a slightly quieter home.

Leo's first encounter with the paparazzi  unsettled him just a little.

If you are looking for a dog to be a wonderful companion for both you and your dog, Leo may be the dog for you.
