is beautiful boy with adorable loving temperament. Standard size for his breed- large. UK resident dog since birth. The lady, his owners, had him from puppy. Neutered. Housetrained. Lead trained. Muzzle trained. Good in a car. No mess no chews at home. Currently is at Nottinghamshire, NG18.
Unfortunately his owner took a heartbreaking decision to rehome LEO. The Lady loves LEO to bits, but current family circumstances make them looking for rehoming. Unfortunately in the previous relations there was family abuse and LEO always stood to defend his bellowed owner and it worked. But now LEO continues to stand for his lady in new relations even if there is no threat. And it now causes troubles.
LEO is active and playful. Friendly with no pushy dogs. Also lived with cats. But will best suit as a single pet in a house due to some guarding issues (toys, treats, etc). LEO used to live/communicate with kids. But he is strong and sudden movements or a pinch voice can make him anxious, especially in a new home. So the best match for LEO will be adult home.
LEO loves his walks and loves to play. Same time he loves cuddles on the sofa and is calm and good tempered at home. Typical to bulldogs can be stubborn, but with positive (NO FORCE/NO PUNISHMENT) methods it is easy to avoid it. No force methods are allowed with LEO, no outdated “alpha” or service dogs methods. Only positive reinforcement will work with Leo to build bonds, trust and agility: there are many methods to build human leadership with dogs and we will be happy to send tips on this.
This is what his owner says about him:
“ This is my pride and joy Leo. He turned 6 on the 17th September. He is microchipped, castrated and had his puppy vaccinations. He is brilliant off the lead and has brilliant recall. He can be quite strong on the lead for the first 5 minutes but soon calms down when he’s been let off and had a run and walks lovely.
He knows sit, paw (Although he doesn’t really like his feet being touched) and will sometimes grumble, he knows down, roll over, spin around and is amazing in the car, no mess or sickness maybe a bit of whining because he’s excited too where he is going.
He also lives with 2 cats that are not scared at all but would most likely chase cats that he doesn’t know and are not used to dogs so maybe not a good idea. Same with small animals he has never killed an animal he’s been around my sister ferrets and never injured but just to be on the safe side better off not be any.
LEO is healthy, neutered, microchipped. Has puppy vaccinations.
