I don’t like insects ~ they bug me!!!  (ha-ha…did you get the joke).  But seriously, I do not like insects.  But first things first…hello everyone!  My name is Leo and I’m 7 years old.  I was a little anxious and withdrawn when I first arrived in the arms of Golden Rescue and my amazing foster family but it didn’t take me long to feel comfortable in my new surroundings and boy do I love it here.  When I first arrived, I was, as you humans call it ‘intact’ so I had to go to the doc to get snipped.  I’m all good now and the doc said I’m a fine, healthy boy.  I did know some of my commands but I’m learning even more of them.  I’m not bad on the leash unless I see another dog or get on a scent, then all bets are off.  I like other dogs but before my operation, another male dog attacked me.  No harm done BTW but it made me a bit cautious around other dogs until I know they’re as friendly as I am.  I love people especially all you Golden Rescue folks but, in all seriousness, I do love EVERYONE!  I also love my car rides and my walks.  I am not a big barker but will certainly bark if I hear another dog or a strange noise.  You can please touch me anywhere and leave me alone if you have to go out without me.  I especially love the mornings.  Every morning, like clockwork, I get up and fly outside and immediately roll on my back ecstatically feeling the morning dew ~ I just love it.  And if the grass is particularly wet, I take a dive down the hill nose first and pretend I’m a toboggan ~ wheeeeee!!!  Ah, life is good…I am one lucky dude.  Thank you…Golden Rescue!

Leo is currently being fostered in the Tottenham, ON area. If you would like more information about Leo please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
