Hi! My Name Is Leonidas

Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.
ABR’s resident snuggle bug Leo is a story in the perseverance of dogs. He was brought to us after being surrendered to a shelter in terrible condition. Only 5 years old, he had advanced heartworm disease that had never been treated and was little more than a walking skeleton. After several months of proper care and treatment, Leo has conquered his heartworm and transformed into the most handsome heartbreaker you’ll ever meet. Despite his rough start to life, Leo has always been a wiggly ball of curiosity and love. No one is a stranger to Leo, just a potential source of snacks and snuggles he hasn’t had a chance to woo yet. Leo is fascinated with toys. He loves anything he can chase down and chew on (bonus points if it squeaks). Now with tons of energy for walks and playtime, Leo is having the time of his life. He’s also perfectly content to cuddle up next to you on the couch for an afternoon of TV and snuggles. But be warned, inviting Leo onto your bed at night is an invitation for a barrage of kisses and half of your bed being taken over. If you’re looking for an adorable little bed hog who will give you unending love and an ever-wiggling tail, then this gentle soul will have you falling head over heels.
